+ String quartet
10 musicians : 6 renown jazzmen, all superb soloists, and a string quartet in a creative dialog.
Michel Herr, who is known internationally for his talents as a jazz pianist/composer/arranger, proposes exclusively original compositions, with a unique touch.
The arrangements are fascinating and illustrate his attachment to a music that is accessible, rich in melodic and harmonic contents and combined with convincing grooves. The strings have a substantial role as a musical partner and the soloists are first class.
An album has been recorded in November 2018, to be released in 2019.
