Modern acoustic evocative jazz, “energy, enthusiasm, joy and technique”. Jazz vibraphone with a European twist.
Pascal Schumacher, from the new generation of vibraphone players based in Brussels, where he surrounds himself with the astonishing piano player Jef Neve (B), a real acrobatic poet on the keyboard, and one of the strongest rhythm sections in Europe composed of Christophe Devisscher (B) on bass and Jens Düppe (D) on drums.
SEE AND HEAR PASCAL SCHUMACHER QUARTET
Modern acoustic evocative jazz. At the moment of initiating improvisation, the musicians develop a strong force of attraction with a defined sonority, infatuating and charming, playing through jazz monuments and personal compositions, where every musician invites the other to keep on challenging musical frontiers. Clear melodic motifs, gloomy and bright, floating on melancholic waves, in other words music rich of imagination and expression, filled with altering emotions, going from soothing to violent, always with passion.
Have a listen, it is really beautiful music.
