MICHEL BISCEGLIA TRIO
Pianist, composer and arranger Michel Bisceglia is one of the most important and most vigorous musicians from Belgium. As a composer and musician he worked with jazz icons such as Randy Brecker, Bob Mintzer, Toots Thielemans and Dewey Redman. He was also nominated twice as Best Belgian Musician of the year, in 1999 and 2002. Only rarely this trio finds the time to perform their exquisite music live on stage.
Michel Bisceglia took his time to develop his most personal project. Since 1997 he recorded only five albums with his trio, but they played worldwide on famous jazz festivals such as the Rochester International Jazzfestival (USA), Jarasum International Jazz Festival (South Korea), Hong Kong International Jazz Festival (HK) the Guimaraes Jazz Festival (Portugal) with Dewey Redman Quartet, Ulverston Music Festival in the UK. Each one of those five albums is an absolute masterpiece. As Michel Bisceglia describes it himself: “They are exercises in subtilized meditations on intangible melodies.”
A typical characteristic of Michel Bisceglia is working with artists outside the jazz world. His most notable coproduction in this regard was released with the famous Belgian DJ Buscemi on Blue Note Records.
The trio has been performing with the same setting for over 20 years with Werner Lauscher on bass and Marc Léhan on drums.
