CHECK OUT MY NEW ALBUM – LOST IN REVERSE
Matthijs Geerts (1993) is a pianist and composer from The Netherlands. He is a highly in-demand session player that plays among others with GREYHEADS, Marutyri & DESH. He just released his debut CD called ‘Lost in Reverse’.
‘Contemporary jazz in its most hybrid form’
Only a few jazz players have experienced the evolution that pianist and composer Matthijs Geerts did. Captivated by dazzlingly fast runs, harmonic structure and atmospheric sounds he created a new idiom that he describes as ‘Contemporary jazz in its most hybrid form’
This new sound, that blends acoustic and electric elements seamlessly, he recorded on a CD together with his All Star band consisting of Thomas Pol (double bass) Michiel Stekelenburg (guitar) Jesse Schilderink (saxophone) and Davy Andy Henket (drums).
Lost in Reverse has been streamed 100,000+ times since its release on October 15 and has been broadcasted on Radio 2 and Sublime FM. His unique and stylistical approach of playing truly makes him a pianist of the next generation.
‘’…Without a doubt a pioneer of this Dutch pianist with international allure. As far as we are concerned, the Matthijs Geerts Group is already the revelation of Amersfoort Jazz 2022…’’
“…The alternation of fat grooves, odd time signatures, atmospheric parts and beautiful solos by all musicians makes this a very interesting CD.
(…) Very worthwhile!…”
“…Virtuoso music played with flair and a striking looseness. Despite many fast notes, the grooves continue to breathe…”
‘’…This CD consists of seven wonderful produced dynamic compositions where Geerts acoustic piano, surprising synthesizer sounds and intriguing electronics combines with virtuoso playing.
In terms of style we have to think about a modern version of The Chick Corea Elektric Band…’’
