Michel Meis 4tet

Michel Meis - drums / Alisa Klein - trombone / Antoine Spranger - piano / Stephan Goldbach - double bass

"Kaboom", second album by Michel Meis’ quartet, is a real sound explosion. Oscillating between the muscular sound of a Big Band from which the powerful trombone of Alisa Klein emerges, atmospheres of a smoky piano-bar where the catchy keyboard melodies by Cédric Hanriot hover and the elegant double bass of Stephan Goldbach, the group there continues the work started with his first album, offering music that is at the same time complex, playful, dancing and melancholic. This diversity is crystallized in the playing of the young drummer, who fully assumes there a hybrid identity between the inside side of his rock-hardcore heritage and the complex and muffled rhythm of jazz. In addition to his usual acolytes, Michel Meis surrounded himself with the violinist Theo Ceccaldi for an album with a long breath, the discovery of which is similar to a crossing both dazzling and unpredictable of genres, tones, atmospheres, dusting the jazz by bringing in elements from (post-) rock or classical music. From State of Uncertainty, written during the first confinement, to the final Re:build, the album reproduces the uncertainties of the world we live in - but also the possible construction of a better tomorrow.

Arthur Possing Quartet ft. Thomas Mayade

Arthur Possing - piano, compositions / Thomas Mayade - trumpet / Pierre Cocq-Amann - saxophones, compositions / Sebastian “Schlapbe“ Flach - double bass, effects, compositions / Niels Engels - drums

The repertoire of this quartet is made up of personal compositions, as well as pieces by jazzmen that the group is particularly fond of. They offer us a modern jazz, which however cares to maintain a link with tradition, by mixing influences from all sides. The first album “Four Years”, released in March 2018 on the Belgian label Hypnote Records, was warmly received by the public and the press and won the “Hit” of Couleurs Jazz in France.
Today, they return to the Jazz Station to present us the second opus: "Natural Flow". In the continuity of “Four Years”, the group continues its exploration in order to offer innovative and sought-after sounds, which gives it a unique DNA. The musicians recorded the album at Peter Gabriel’s famous Real World Studios in Box (UK), which are among the most renowned studios in the world. They are home to a range of the best audio equipment ever made.
