Having played regularly with the band Jaga Jazzist for ten years, and performing with Chick Corea and Manu Katché, in 2007 trumpeter Mathias Eick was voted the world's best young jazz talent by the Organisation of International Jazz Festivals in New York. Since then he has been concentrating on the quartet format that recently released the album The Door on the ECM label. Eick on record is largely unrefined and melodic, in performance his quartet kicks hard, turning his powerful compositions into energetic vehicles for the entire group to collectively search for new avenues of expression.
