Dock In Absolute, a young Luxembourgish pianist trio. A very disciplined outfit, there was a baroque underpinning to Koch’s compositions wedded to an indie rock feel. - The New-York City Jazz Record

Dock in Absolute haben die Entwicklung von Luxemburger Musikacts auf dem Kopf gestellt. Mit ihren Auslandsauftritten setzte das Jazz-Trio bereits Ausrufezeichen; noch bevor sie im Großherzogtum überhaupt breiter bemerkt wurden. - Daniel Conrad – Luxemburger Wort

Dock in Absolute est un trio de jeunes musiciens professionnels luxembourgeois ayant acquis une solide expérience dans des lieux prestigieux tels que Berklee College of Music de Boston, Codarts University of Arts de Rotterdam, Hochschule für Musik de Saarbrücken. Leur approche du jazz est libre et sans conventions, ce qui leur permet d’inventer un univers riche de sons nouveaux. Dock in Absolute jouent un jazz résolument contemporain et accessible, avec des influences dance, pop, et classique dans la meilleure tradition romantique européenne. Tour à tour rêveur, flamboyant et énergique, leur style commun qui prend sa source dans une forte identité collective, est la parfaite expression d’un jazz jeune, conscient de ses racines, perméable à toutes les influences fertiles d’autres genres musicaux.

Dock in Absolute is made up of three young professional musicians having studied at the Berklee College of Music Boston, Codarts University of Arts Rotterdam, Hochschule für Musik Saarbrücken. With a shared love of jazz, they combine different styles of progressive Jazz, classical music and rock.
