Paul Wiltgen
drums & composition

Since his arrival in New York City in the fall of 2001, Luxembourg native Paul Wiltgen, has made a name for himself among the local and international music industry as an accomplished jazz percussionist and forward-thinking composer. An artist in the truest sense of the word, Paul has earned acclaim as a musician with a unique balance of aesthetic and passion.

After an extensive classical tutelage at the Music Conservatory in Esch/Alzette (Luxembourg) and at various music workshops throughout the world, he completed both undergraduate and graduate jazz studies at Manhattan School of Music, learning from the likes of John Riley, David Liebman, Samir Chatterjee & Michael Abene.

Becoming a truly pancontinental artist, Paul has appeared alongside such emerging stars as Patrick Cornelius, Michael Janisch, Dave Binney, Miles Okazaki, Linda Oh, Ambrose Akinmusire, Will Vinson, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Lage Lund, Mike Moreno, Franz von Chossy, Tim Collins, Brian Seeger, Cedric Hanriot, Kristjan Randalu and Pablo Held.

Besides mainly working as a sideman and occasionally leading his own groups, Paul is currently also co-leading the Reis / Demuth / Wiltgen Trio

Patrick Cornelius: Acadia: Way Of The Cairns

Read "Acadia: Way Of The Cairns" reviewed by Chris May

No, this is not an ECM album, though, looking at the sleeve art, you would be excused from thinking it was trying to pass itself off as one.
