Generally for me their music is like Animal Nightlife (musical style/vocal),but in some songs such as "Hey Man In The Moon" it reminds me the band Double.
After two albums Peter Fessler launched a solo career and released more jazz-like,sometimes acoustic albums.These releases are also very nice so if somebody interested in i can share them with pleasure.
Their pruducer Mike Herting also produced some songs on Fritz Brause's album,maybe this is the reason why the style of the bands resemble each other.(salty)

"It all started for German-Canadian Peter FESSLER in 1987 with the Top 10 hit "New York, Rio, Tokyo" and the band Trio Rio. Even then many of his breezy pop miniatures bore the influence of Bossa Nova legend Antonio Carlos Jobim. Today FESSLER is regarded without a doubt as the most competent interpreter of modern Brazilian sounds in our European climes. A relocation to San Francisco made a decisive mark on him, promptly expressed in songs with a quintessential California "easy feeling".These years of artistic self-searching in the realms of Latin pop, jazz standards, Bach vocalizing or just the barest guitar accompanying his song miniatures have made him a sound to be reckoned with. Nowadays making his home near Cologne, Germany, the inimitably personal style of multi-voice FESSLER is ranked as the European counterpart to such grand masters as Jon Hendricks, Al Jarreau or Bobby McFerrin."

Its a very intelligent jazz pop album with fantastic vocals presents Fessler in the style of the the great Al Jarreau (saltyka)

Trio Rio is a German band. Despite the name, the band is a quintet originating from Hamburg. The band was founded in 1983 by the vocalist Peter Fessler (born 1959) together with four friends. The music style is a combination of Latin rhythm and Rock. The band is famous with one song titled New York - Rio - Tokyo which was number one in German chart in 1986. The second single titled Voulez Voulez Vouz was a flop. The band was separated in 1990. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trio_Rio)

After Trio Rio

Peter Fessler
returned in 1993 with Conquer Me (check the BONUS!!) , a solo hit. From there he switched to playing Jazz with Randy Crawford and Chaka Khan.

"Fessler gets around. Fessler, of Canadian-Polish-German descent, was born in Cologne, Germany. At the age of twelve, he began studying jazz guitar and Brazilian music. At the age of 20 he crossed the Atlantic for the first time, embarking on a musical journey that would take him into the world of sessions in clubs, bars and hotels in New York and San Francisco. During this time he began composing his own music.
Upon his return to Europe, Fessler began a concentrated study of jazz vocal technique at the renowned Cologne Music Conservatory. Soon after, Fessler became the front man and voice of the latin jazz oriented TRIO RIO. Once Fessler realized that his own musical style as a solo artist merited more attention, he made a fresh start in New York City where he began building his reputation as a virtuoso interpreter of the jazz repertoire.
Later in his travels, back in San Francisco, he brought the various shades of his own compositions into sharp focus, pulling material from both the bright and subdued colors of his life. Fessler had found the voice he wanted to hear. After this intensely creative time in the USA, Fessler found his way back to Germany where he recorded "My Songs", his first solo album.
Since his return to Europe he has continued to tour, performing live on the concert stage and logging numerous television and radio productions along the way. Fessler's voice can be heard by children all over Germany in the title role of the Walt Disney film "Aladdin", the German version. Following the release of his recording "Don't Tell Me", Fessler dedicated his next four recordings to jazz and latin-jazz repertoire while simultaneously exploring the territory covered by his own compositions.
Fessler's percussive vocal style is often playful, sometimes deceptively light, especially when one considers the difficulty of the musical challenges he tackles with such ease. His high level of skill as a vocalist likens him to the most seasoned instrumentalists. "Breathtaking" is the word often used to describe his unique interpretations of standard jazz ballads or one of his own exquisite compositions. These moments are considered by many to be the high points of his concerts. "...his effortless four octave range, sometimes restrained, sometimes expressively playful, doesn't require any lavish accompaniment; the guitar playing Fessler accompanies the singing Fessler better than anyone..." wrote one enthusiastic critic.
AL JARREAU was so impressed by Fessler's ability that he invited Fessler with his guitar on the stage for duets at the Montreux Jazz Festival. In the same year, while being featured as "Multi Voice", Fessler was a special guest on the RANDY CRAWFORD tour. In 1999, following a double concert with BOBBY MC FERRIN at the Stuttgart Jazz Open, Mc Ferrin and Fessler did a radio interview. The topic: The opposing forces at play for virtuoso vocalists; the enormous exitement and stress of balancing the intensity of their voices with their emotions.
Both Mc Ferrin and Fessler are consumed by theire desire to constantly push their vocal abilities to the edge of what is musically possible. This creative risk taking is well worth the effort when one considers the magical effect they have on theire respective audiences. On his newest recording LANDSCAPE TAPESTRY, Fessler puts his relaxed virtuosity to good use; singing his own compositions as well as creatively several standards from both the American and Brazilian Songbooks. He combines his voice, guitar, vocalise improvisations, and familiarity with the jazz vocabulary to paint an intimate picture of his unique musical world. Sometimes his music is simple and beautiful, sometimes orchestral and grand and with an edge of danger.
Fessler takes the fabric of the classic European art song, and weaves threads of American music and Brazilian rhythms through ist substantial cloth. This individual style of music, pioneerd by Peter Fessler, is now referred to as the "European Jazz-Lied".

Klaus Mages (drums)
later played with Rainbirds,Yarinistan, Pata Masters, a Touch of Flamenco.His actual projets are The Drums Can Also Talk, T.he A.tmosphere O.rchestra (T.A.O.), Trio Sousouffle, Gestus,Die Hölderlin Connection and Ensemble Gestus. This projects has different styles as World Music, Jazz, Pop and Improvisations .So he is still very active .

Oliver Heuss (piano,syth)
composed flim scores and ad jingles (http://www.gremmy.de/index.php)
Anyway he got Golden Bobby for Fessler's "Don't Tell Me" album. Oliver even played piano on it.

Pablo Escayola (perc.,drums)
,who was born in Uruguay,now living in Germany .After Trio Rio joined Nils Gessinger Band.So he is playing jazz /funk/soul now. (http://www.nilsgessinger.de/ngfarch.html and http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=95812212)

Cläusel Quitschau (bass)
before formed Trio Rio played in the jazz-fusion band Headband.Since 1975 living in Köln .After Trio Rio he has worked as a studio musician and toured with Collosseum`s Chris Farlowe and Linus.Since 1997 playing with Kozmic Blue . (http://www.s-promotion.com/kozmicblue/info/info.htm)

The only place that I find information in the internet about the greatest band in 80's.

I think at that time a band in Germany like Trio Rio doesn't know that his group is very popular in Indonesia or throughout Asia.
