Williamsburg Trumpeter Mathias Eick was voted the world’s best young jazz talent by the organisation of International Jazz Festivals in New York in 2007. Eick has played regularly with the band Jaga Jazzist for ten years, as well as performing with Chick Corea and Manu Katché. In recent years he has concentrated on performing with his quartet; their album The Door on the ECM label has received critical acclaim since its release in August 2008. ‘it’s so refreshing to hear compositions (all by Eick) and playing distinguished by such melodic and textural freshness and - above all - dynamic sensitivity. A record of the year choice, without doubt.’ -Michael Tucker, Jazz Journal International
