New Release: “State Of Mind” From Guitarist And Composer Gilles Grethen



Luxembourgish guitarist and composer Gilles Grethen unites his quartet with an 11-piece string orchestra for a mix of jazz and classical.

“State of Mind” (release date 21st Oct) follows up on his 2021 debut ‘Time Suite’, which explored the concept of a suite and its potential to be translated into the jazz idiom. Taking the idea several steps further, Grethen’s intricate compositions dance around complex themes and harmonies while never losing sight of the rich and diverse sound of contemporary jazz.

German trumpeter Vincent Pinn, Italian bassist Gabriele Basilico, and Luxembourg drummer
Michel Meis combine to create many different moods and soundscapes. From
contemplation to intoxication and delusion to transcendental experiences, various states of the human mind are made acoustically tangible, but the music always remains sensual despite all the complexity.
