After almost a decade as a freelancer in New York, various solo and sideman projects, a Hammond trio and his celebrated and award-winning Eight Cylinder Big Band, Munich pianist Matthias Bublath is now exploring the traditional piano trio format.
With influences ranging from gospel, latin, funk, and the socio-political movements of the 20th Century , ‘Orange Sea’ is set to release on the 30th of September on Enja records.
At the forefront of the record are bluesy, soulful, melodic compositions that serve as a playful springboard for the ensemble to explore and push each other to their limits.
Syncopated rhythmic unison lines at breakneck speeds, deep-swinging groove, and emotive harmony emphasize musicality and virtuosity in equal measure.
Bublath’s improvisational freedom is facilitated and secured by his two colleagues who are just as stylistically flexible as he. Peter Cudek, the Slovakian bass player, is versatile and original, equally as able to carry melodies as he is able to showcase his understated virtuosity.
Christian Lettner, newly appointed professor for percussion in Munich and long-time member of revered fusion outfit Doldinger’s Passport, is a highly sought-after drummer for countless projects ranging from jazz, classical percussion, to pop and R&B.
