Great news for Jazz artist Michel Reis, his latest record Short Stories, released last October on Cam Jazz, has been selected as one of the best albums of 2019 by Geert Ryssen from Belgian magazine Jazz & Mo’!
If you want to know more about this album, read this review from Jazz specialist Brian Morton:
“Short Stories is the magnificent new solo album from Luxembourg-born pianist Michel Reis, a set of fourteen delicately spun narratives, each with its own colour, setting and direction, each as compelling as the last. [...] Reis has released trio music on CAM JAZZ already, but this is a chance to hear him in a no less typical setting, in quiet and thoughtful communication with a beautiful piano. His style, influenced by classical music, but still very much in the modern jazz idiom, is open, alert and responsive, respectful to the example of his teachers but now, after ten albums, confidently moving in its own direction.”
