Album Description

10 musicians : 6 renown jazzmen, all superb soloists, and a string quartet play the music of Michel Herr. Michel Herr, who is known internationally for his talents as a jazz pianist/composer/arranger, offers here music which is at the same time warm and refreshing, a combination of vitality, beauty and emotion. His compositions, his refined arrangements, marked with his unique touch, illustrate his attachment to a music that is accessible, rich in melodic and harmonic contents and built on nice grooves. The strings have a substantial role as a musical partner in the project and the soloists are first class. The dialog is creative and the chemistry works.

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!
