Marc Bischoff - Later Is Too Late

€ 18.95

On his CD ‘Later is Too Late’ pianist Marc Bischoff surprises with a very personal interpretation of the piano trio format. Bischoff already made his name in latin jazz, here he opens new perspectives in eleven own compositions. Intriguing themes, varying from the pure melodious and lyrical (‘Waltz for a rainy day’, his pianosolo ‘Silent conversation’) to crispy grooves (‘U-turn’), all rhythmically rock-solid. With a subtle use of effects on the grand piano and a tinge of latin, sometimes just showing through, in one composition dominating (‘Black Jack’).

The Antillian bass guitar player (both electric and fretless) Reno Steba and the Iranian percussion wizard Afra Mussawisade respond in a rather unique way on Bischoffs debut CD as a leader. This is not a case of just a gifted piano player and his two accompanists, here we have three equally virtuoso voices, supporting each other and together exploring the spaces of improvisation. Packed with expression, exciting, melodious and introspective. A musical journey with a very own heartbeat and an amazing wealth of variations in sound.
