Michel Reis Paris quartet Short Info

The ‘’Paris Quartet’’ led by Michel Reis, is composed by a stellar band of some of the very prominent musicians of the French jazz scene, including drummer Louis Moutin, bassist Mauro Gargano and saxophonist Jonathan Orland.

The music mostly written by Michel Reis is inspired by Film Music, “Third Stream Jazz’’, by the great French composers like Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel as well as more traditional music from France.

As in all projects and recordings, Reis always strives to build atmospheres which go deep into lyrical dimensions, yet having still the full rhythmic energy of a modern jazz group, where composition and spontaneous improvisation take the listeners to levels of a deep emotional journey.

Jonathan Orland and Michel Reis know each other since many years, having met in Boston, MA, while being music students, Jonathan Orland at the famous Berklee College of Music, and Michel Reis who was a Berklee graduate at that time already, and perfecting his musical skills at the New England Conservatory ofMusic. While in Boston,they were playing together as sidemen in different bands.

Jonathan Orland, who is currently again based in Paris, introduced Michel Reis to drummer Louis Moutin, who is very famous for his work with his brother François Moutin and as a sideman, and to the Italian bassist Mauro Gargano, who has made a name for himself as stellar musician, playing in diverse groups as a sideman as well leading his own band as a leader.
The group had its premiere at the famous Paris jazz club Sunside in May 2013.
