With Oslo, Michael Wollny and his trusty rhythm section (bassist Christian Weber and drummer Eric Schaefer) confirm that their project is as solid as ever. Recorded at Rainbow Studio in the Norwegian capital in September 2017, the album confirms that Wollny is one of the most skilful German jazz pianists of his generation. An improviser, here he deploys his staple piano style, with plenty of spaces and silences. His playing carries a sincere romanticism which never feels overdone, and a muted tonality. And whether he is tackling Fauré, Debussy or Rautavaara, or playing themes of his own devising, this fan of Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau, Esbjörn Svensson and Paul Bley imposes a signature piano style all his own. Note that on three tracks the trio are joined by the Norwegian Wind Ensemble. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Sometimes it's easier to live a life of solitude when you're... alone? That’s what Michael Wollny is on Mondenkind. Actually, he’s not completely alone. He’s surrounded by names such as Alban Berg, Rudolf Hindemith, Sufjan Stevens, Tori Amos and the Canadian group Timber Timbre. Through revisiting pieces from this eclectic decade-crossing list, the German pianist reflects on loneliness with his usual open-minded attitude. Two thirds of the compositions on this solo album are his own. Recorded in Berlin’s Teldex studio in in April 2020, it feels like he’s searching for a sound on this record. The sound of his instrument perhaps. He also explores his relationship with classical music, which is at the heart of this beautiful record. A brilliant journey inwards. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

The beasts are loose! At the end of 2019, just a few months before the curtain fell over the world, pianist Michael Wollny (who has gone electric for this album), saxophonist Émile Parisien, bassist Tim Lefebvre and drummer Christian Lillinger all entered the A-Trane club in Berlin with no set-list and no roadmap. Over the course of eight sets, these four fascinating, crazy, contemporary jazz scientists conversed, provoked, fought, embraced, and entwined. What they created here was electro, krautrock, free, progressive – it was more than simply jazz. The sound defies classification, and maybe it’s better that way. With the help of producer Jason Kingsland, who mainly deals in rock productions (Kaiser Chiefs, Band of Horses, Belle and Sebastian), they turned almost eight hours of live recording into 45 minutes of studio material. The result is a fascinating experience. Naturally, XXXX is rather less accessible than Sidney Bechet's Petite fleur. But the listener can't help but be carried away by the generosity of these wild exchanges and the energy of the four musicians who never fall into the trap of a complacent, inward-looking jam. Sensitive souls steer clear! Curious souls, get stuck in! © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Recorded on 15 September 2017 at the Wartburg castle near Eisenach in Thuringia, this live album shows the Michael Wollny trio in a more adventurous light than usual. With his trusty rhythm section (bassist Christian Weber and drummer Eric Schaefer), the German pianist throws himself into some truly daring swerves and embarks on melodies that take him over rocky ground. Over four tracks, the three men rub shoulders with Emile Parisien and his untamed, deft saxophone playing. It's a meeting which we would have liked to follow through a few more songs… © Max Dembo/Qobuz
