DOCK IN ABSOLUTE


New album “Unlikely”, out in May 2019 

 

The second album by Luxembourg trio Dock In Absolute offers further confirmation of their genre-shifting approach to trio jazz, with familiar bop elements intermingeld with classical, pop and post-rock elements. Pianist Jean-Philippe Koch's romantic melodism, bassist David Kintziger's flowing lyricism and percussionist Michel Mootz's approach to the whole kit as an integrated musical instrument yields up a sustained and often surprising beauty.

GUY MINTUS


New album „Connecting The Dots“ since February 2019

 

The wonder of music is that it allows us to tap into a dimension where things are more connected thatn they may at first seem. Zohar Argov, Horace Silver, Rumi, Fairouz, an Italian neighborhood in NY and a city in Uzbekistan – these are just some of the people and places that have inspired this brand new album Connecting The Dots. 

 

Guy Mintus is an Israeli born New York based pianist, composer & educator active in Jazz, World Music and contemporary scenes. His musical influences are borderless and bring together elements from Stride piano to Turkish Makams, Indian rhythms to Bach-styled conterpoint, Jewish melodies and American jazz standards that are seamlessly weaved together into his own signature style.
