He’s accompagnied by Daniel Jonkers (drums) and Alex Gilson (Bass).
His latest album “The Unquiet Sky” (2016) features Aaron Parks, Doug Weiss, and Jeff Ballard.
Cast Glass is an international mini-orchestra led by composer duo Marc Alberto & Marco Mlynek. Their music splices pop melodies, folk lyrics, jazz harmonies and neoclassical textures together seamlessly. With intelligent compositions and theatrical stylings, they’re sure to suck you into their musical fantasy.
Willem Suilen & Marvin Frey, a piano and trumpet duo, have developed a unique voice in a scene dominated by trios and quartets. Their music is marked by a deep sense of space, with spun out melodies and sparse textures that seem to stretch time to the breaking point.
