REIS DEMUTH WILTGEN
ONCE IN A BLUE MOON

2018

CAM JAZZ RECORDS

"A captivating inventive energy, the ability to shape the underlying sounds into all possible combinations to form an exhilarating, enchanting flow: with the REIS-DEMUTH-WILTGEN Trio, releasing its first album on this label, Jazz can be cutting-edge without waiving its strong emotional impact on listeners.
But how do they do it?
By means of an endless stream of ideas, never squandered and wasted, melodic and rhythmic cells pursued carefully, revisited in every harmonic, timbric and dynamic way possible, as in Freedom Trail. Or through two themes that, after an exquisite short-circuit opening, intertwine into an unexpected, intense process of development, as in New Beginning. Or by Michel Reis’ flowing, dynamic, smooth piano playing and its indissoluble bond with Marc Demuth’s double bass in Coming Home. Or by the superb harmonic structure of Never Seen Again, a melancholic, poignant ballad. Or else through the invaluable groove of Paul Wiltgen’s drums in Sacred Conversation or the sober, subtly glorious revisitation of Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now, its theme first being played on the double bass, then on the piano while the drums breathe, yes, breathe over them. No more words are needed. Listen to the remaining tracks on your own, so that you can realize for yourself why the music by this trio is so embracing, warm, exciting, unpredictable: like Jazz can be, when Jazz is Jazz."

PLACES IN BETWEEN

2016

DOUBLE MOON RECORDS

(Laborie Jazz in France / Mocloud Records in Japan) 

"Places In Between captures the essence of our trio and of the music on this album. We are three Luxembourg artists who are based in different locations. Most of the time we are connecting either online or on tour when we are away from our respective homes. The title is reflective of the times when we are traveling together with all the experiences we amass - the fun and bizarre, magical and surreal - moments that cement our friendship and expand our creativity. The songs in 'Places in between' also present musically, those moments in a person's life - whether they occur during travels or during a major transition - that are pauses from the routines of daily life; it is often during these unexpected moments that mystery takes hold and magic unfolds."
