About the Michel Meis 4Tet:
The quartet around the drummer Michel Meis is making its mark on the European jazz scene with a sonic vocabulary that skillfully blends a traditional instrumentation with the fresh approach and the broad musical background of open-minded and fearless musicians. They effortlessly move from one extreme to the other. Unleashed rhythms culminate in lyrical melodies. Classical jazz elements steer towards lush electronic effects. Free improvisation ends up almost seamlessly in sophisticated, detailed compositions. “To me, being torn between different options doesn’t mean being undecided, but rather passionately breaking down apparent barriers or bringing opposites in a dialogue” says Meis about his music.
The result is an exciting modern jazz that has been duly recognized by Double Moon/Challenge Records when they signed the quartet’s debut album “Lost in Translation” in their series “Jazz thing Next Generation” – a first for a Luxembourgish artist.
