Vibraphonist and band leader Pascal Schumacher sets the tone in thePascal Schumacher Quartet. The Luxembourg resident was taught bymasters like Gary Burton, Mike Mainieri and Dutchman FritsLandesbergen. Yet, after his studies, he succeeded in creating acompletely unique sound that can be enjoyed to its full extent inhis own quartet. He is a fantastic technician and this allows himto also play small and delicately. He proves that he is a bandleader of this day and age by integrating compositions of modernEnglish pop groups, like Coldplay and Snow Patrol into hisrepertoire. During a live performance, Schumacher can reach the skywith his ensemble. The quartet (with Franz Von Chossy on the piano)has so far released four CDs, of which Here We Go is the mostrecent.
