Jean-Paul Brodbeck Solo Recorded in the renowned SRF Studio in Zurich, Jean-Paul Brodbeck presents with "Expansion" a piano solo CD that can be considered a mirror of his not only musical worlds. For example, he documents his love of classical music with Chopin's C minor Prelude or the "Brahmsian Dance", sets a light and airy counterpoint with standards such as "Nobody Else But Me" and lets his subtle sense of humor shine through with compositions such as "The Cat Is Still Laughing". It is striking how light-footedly Brodbeck moves between the worlds, how the various traditions become a plaything for him, always with the premise of not stifling his refined musical ideas with acrobatic virtuosity. It is the subtleties that make his music and touch both mind and soul. Michel Camilo (piano) | Eliel Lazo (cuban perc.) Caribbean Jazz-Fever: Michel Camilo was born in Santo Domingo on April 4, 1954.
