Louis de Mieulle Louis de Mieulle

Paris born bassist-composer Louis de Mieulle started his musical education at 7, playing the cello. Rebellion through rock’n’roll bass guitar. Eventually graduated from the National Conservatory of Paris (classical writing). In 2006, won a composition contest in Tours (Fr) with the opera “Tres Para Una”, co-written with Augustin d’Assignies and Edward Greaves. Moved to the Land of Donald to attend the Berklee College of Music. Now between NYC leading his own band, and France as a member of Moonsüün.

2011: first solo album “Defense Mechanisms”. Recorded in Brooklyn with Berklee comrades Matt Garstka (drums) and Casimir Liberski (piano). ”Is there such a thing as “math-jazz”? I’ve no idea, but it will have you tapping your toe and scratching your head at one and the same time. (...) An engaging and sometimes challenging, but always entertaining listen (...)” (Roger Trenwith - DPRP)

2015: second LP, “Stars, Plants & Bugs” (Dalang!Records). An impressionist concept-album with psychedelic and prog rock overtones. ”The arrangements drift seamlessly from modernistic electronic and sci-fi fuzzed bass backgrounds, to venture forth across spacious cosmic vastness, to dropping in on rarefied alt-lounge jazz piano respectfully paying homage to ancient wonder.” [Roger Trenwith - The Progressive Aspect]

2017: “DUAL”, a collaboration with drummer Matt Garstka, featuring three guitarists (David Potaux-Razel, Aki Ishiguro, Jussi Reijonen). Postmodern classical melodies by Louis, written over Matt’s Math-grooves. “The underground modern jazz album you didn’t know you needed.” [Dave Tremblay - CTEBCM?] “A spidery, hypnotic beast (...) A truly impressionist and modern architecture. If you have an ear for true progressive music, you need to hear this.”” (Roger Trenwith, The Progressive Aspect).

”Most complex music I've heard in a while,but monster musicians making it sound easy” (Aaron Nevezie, recording/mixing engineer, the Bunker Studio)

“Defense Mechanisms is a fine debut which I whole heartedly recommend for jazz listeners searching for something a little different.” (Jon Neudorf, Sea of Tranquility)

“Is there such a thing as “math-jazz”? I’ve no idea, but it will have you tapping your toe and scratching your head at one and the same time. (...) An engaging and sometimes challenging, but always entertaining listen” (Roger Trenwith - DPRP)

“More melodic than Defense Mechanisms but no less complex, Stars, Plants & Bugs is an instrumental concept album that transmits the natural and cosmic themes of the album title through a music that is both intellectual but at the same time easy on the ear.” [Roger Trenwith, TPA]

“Une musique aux mille mouvements hypnotiques et à tout autant de mélodies charmeuses

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
