JEAN-MICHEL PILC TRIO
Presentation CD New Dreams
Jean-Michel Pilc-piano, Thomas Bramerie-bass, Ari Hoenig-drums
Jean-Michel Pilc, in the 80's still working as a rocket scientist in Toulouse, only saw his career as jazz pianist launched after his move to New York in the mid 90's. ‘Mr Pilc seems to have dropped from the sky fully formed, with technique and his ideas in place. He is a physical and densely harmonic player, a splashy stunner who also has a Rubik’s-cube mind for chord substitutions.’ (The New York Times). By now, the Frenchman brought out seven CD's of which he presents his most recent one, New Dreams, with his new trio. ‘Pilc ranks among today’s titans of the instrument... there’s more to his art than the speed, precision and power of his 10 phenomenal fingers.’ (Chicago Tribune).
