About Torrio!
Torrio! - Paul Grabowsky (piano), Mirko Guerrini (tenor saxophone), Niko Schauble (drums), was formed for a one-off performance in late 2013 - the immediate personal and musical connection inspired a commitment to continue performing together as an ongoing project. All three members of Torrio! are prolific composers and each contributes original music to the ensemble's repertoire.

The band's performances are marked by their astounding interplay and passionate playing. Paul Grabowsky, is one of the most respected musical artists in Australia. Niko Schauble is one of the most creative drummers in Australia, and has an association with Paul Grabowsky dating back over three decades. Since moving to Melbourne, expatriate Italian saxophonist Guerrini has impressed with the depth and authority of his playing in a broad range of genres.

Torio's performances range across the boundaries of genre, referencing the various traditions that have inspired them, from jazz and contemporary classical music to pop and soundtrack composition. They are closely attuned; Grabowsky and Schäuble having worked together for nearly thirty years, a relationship reflected in a deep rapport. In Guerrini, they have found the perfect collaborator; a musical polymath, his artistic curiosity matches theirs, resulting in a trio of equals. The result is music without frontiers, playful, joyful, and deep.
