Michel Meis quartet - Espace Méditerranée, showcase
After years of stylistic researches and sound experiments, Michel Meis' band is on the verge to become famous on the European jazz stage thanks to a rich sound vocabulary, skillfully merging the traditional formula drum, trombone, piano and double bass, with the original approach and the extensive style of the various and bold musicians of the band (Michel Meis – drum / Cédric Hanriot – piano / Alisa Klein – trombone / Stephen Goldbach – double bass). As a result, we have a modern and passionate jazz where freedom of improvisation meet well elaborated composition ; where an energetic and vivid rhythm meets an introvert and lyrical melody ; where classical jazz elements meet the use of subtile jungle beats and electronic effects. Even though Michel Meis is a dynamic drummer, he lets the other instruments flourish and thus strengthen the cohesion and the harmony of the project.
