MICHEL MEIS 4TET (LU)
After the success of their albums Lost in Translation (2019) and Kaboom (2021), the latter with French violinist Théo Ceccaldi as a guest musician, the quartet around the Luxembourg drummer Michel Meis is back with their third opus Lollipop Moment. The record features three new compositions embedded in a freely improvised session. The musicians remain Meis’s usual fellows: Alisa Klein on trombone, Cédric Hanriot on piano and Stephan Goldbach on double bass. In contrast, the instrumentation moves towards a more electronic sound with the addition of synthesizers and effects. While improvisation is the common thread of the album, the new hybrid acoustic and electronic sound enhances the band’s sonic spectrum and underlines the band’s career-spanning explosive, edgy, and slightly provocative character.
Through its diverse moods and complex yet never arbitrary structures, Lollipop Moment offers music that is as elaborate as it is spontaneous, giving jazz a fresh touch by breaking down genre boundaries.
