Musician

Michael Wollny

Born:

Michael Wollny, born in 1978 in Schweinfurt, internationally successful jazz pianist, music inventor, unconventional thinker, popular figure. Nobody plays piano like him. His trademark: the unpredictable, the quest for the never-before-heard, the courage to devote himself to the moment, to make the unforeseen sound self-evident. His desire to keep reinventing himself, both in terms of sound and composition; that is what makes him a “consummate piano maestro” (FAZ) and “the biggest (jazz) musician personality that Germany has produced since Albert Mangelsdorff” (Hamburger Abendblatt).

Read "Ludovico Granvassu's Garden Of Jazzy Delights 2022" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


The depth and range of the music that jazz players have put on record in 2022 are so big that summarizing this “year in jazz" by selecting only ten albums feels akin to taking the photo of a breath-taking landscape with an ultra-low resolution camera...

Read "3x3: Piano Trios: September 2022" reviewed by Geno Thackara


Teemu Kekkonen Here/There Self produced 2022 Teemu Kekkonen does indeed cross a lot of both “heres" and “theres" during the course of Here/There. His debut has one foot in his native Finland's folk roots and one in the most urbane of metropolitan clubs. It could instead refer to jazz's past and ...

Wollny - Parisien - Lefebvre - Lillinger: XXXX

Read "XXXX" reviewed by Phillip Woolever


This unique group effort by a progressive team of virtuoso improvisers doesn't always hit the mark of inspired mastery, but the project certainly expands such possibilities. The album is culled from a four-night stand at Berlin's well-known A-Trane club which produced around eight hours of recorded material. The intriguing, unpredictable package presented here clocks in at ...
