Pascal Schumacher has chosen the difficult path of the inventive artist. This young man from Luxembourg focuses on his instrument, snatching from it original sounds resembling, on one side, the subtle sounds of the Fender Rhodes, and on the other, the steel drum. The music surges, producing an organic and energetic effect. It tinkers with the past, is rooted in the present and is based on a model borrowed from the chamber jazz of the 80s, the rock of the 90s and the sincerity of the present. The quartet's energy is equally clear, creating a potential for additional creativity.
A tight and recognisable repertoire, not neglecting his personal idea of sound, and sufficiently serious so as not to lose the humour in the details !
