Note: If you wanna watch or listen to it instead of reading – please go to our PAST page.

Tuesday Microgrooves is an Austrian Jazz – Crossover formation that pushes musical boundaries to their limits. Inspired by various sorts of musical influences, from Esbjoern Svensson Trio to Medeski, Martin and Wood, somewhere in between jazz and drum n bass, Erik Satie and Claude Debussy, funk and soul, classic and pop.

Shortly after they started gigging in their first year, TM was given the honor of playing in front of Grammy Award winner Chucho Valdés. A few months later they were announced winners of the Helix Board competition out of 800 contestants and recorded their first studio album “Summer Rain Spring Kisses“ with Farina Miss as lead vocalist at the renowned Studios 301 in Cologne, Germany. Further projects with e.g. Atmosphere Media and the German Recording Magazin completed the beginning of their journey.

While working on their second release “All The Things“ (EP) the band gained a lot of inspiration out of different collaborations on- and off-stage. From string ensembles to orchestras, from mallets to the award winning flutist Tali Rubinstein.

With recent lead singer Lena Mentschel the band headlined the Taichung Jazzfestival 2016 and earned a standing ovation in front of 10.000 people. After releasing their third record “Saying I Love You in a Postrock Way“, supported by supreme cellist Sigrid Narowetz, Tuesday Microgrooves completed their fourth trip to Asia in October 2017.

In 2018 the band was spending a lot of time on writing new material for their fourth and upcoming studio record “Bigger Than Us“. Some of the new tracks are also going to be released in 3D audio, an innovative project in cooperation with the University of Music and Performing Arts, Graz.

Also stay tuned for an extraordinary collab with some international flair…

Working on several musical directions ment working with different artists, ensembles and companies, such as Atmosphere Media, the mallets of studio percussion or the Orchestras. TM is thankful for this huge amount of experiences  – but still hungry from new ideas and cooperation. Feel free getting in contact with us!
