Ο Γερμανός Michael Wollny είναι από τις πιο ενδιαφέρουσες περιπτώσεις του σύγχρονου jazz πιάνου – η σημαντικότερη ίσως επί ευρωπαϊκού εδάφους. Τον παρακολουθώ από τα early ’00s και η μουσικότητα με την οποία συνδυάζει τις εκτός ορίων αναφορές του [από ατονάλ και avant garde jazz μέχρι ροκ και ποπ χιτ “του συρμού”] δεν σταματάει να με γοητεύει.
Ακούμε την εκδοχή του
Michael Wollny Trio [Tim Lefebvre – bass, Eric Schaefer – drums] στο τραγούδι του Jon Brion από το σάουντρακ της ταινίας Synecdoche, New York του 2008.

German born Michael Wollny is one of the most interesting cases in modern jazz piano – perhaps the most important on European ground. I’ve been watching him since the early ’00s and his musicality in combing off-limits influences [from atonal and avant garde jazz to rock and pop hits] hasn’t stop to fascinate me.
We hear Michael
Wollny Trio‘s version [Tim Lefebvre – bass, Eric Schaefer – drums] of Jon Brion‘s song from the soundtrack of the 2008 film Synecdoche, New York.

      He is not always like this. At times he can be very intriguing and forward thinking…one of the most interesting musicians I’ve taken notice of, the last two decades.
      Thank you!

        Cool! You are the most versed person I know. I come here for the oldies, classics, classical and the new! You are so great staying up with the music scene. I am not, and I am thrilled to get to know music newer than 2000, and older than 1920!

          I can’t thank you enough for your words Resa!
