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