With his impressive artistic biography, Michael Formanek is one of the outstanding personalities of today's jazz:
as a composer, as a bassist in ensembles and as a soloist. He belongs to the series of well-known bassists and composers such as Charles Mingus, Dave Holland, Charlie Haden, Barry Guy.
Formanek's musical world, his immense experience, his knowledge of the jazz tradition and the avant-garde, his skill and his charismatic appearance have a highly uplifting effect on the musicians of his bands.
"Michael Formanek has made some of his wildest creative leaps in development in recent years, documented on a series of critically acclaimed albums," writes American journalist Bradley Bambarger. The new album surprises with song-like compositions that are "traversed by an implied lyricism, along with a meandering metric pulse and a surprising richness of texture".
