Pianist & Composer
Anne Wolf: piano Sigrid Vandenbogaerde: cello
This new, quiet original line-up supported by a magical rhythm section formed by bass player Theo de Jong (who also arranges the cello parts) and drummer Lionel Beuvens and magnificently enhanced by cello player Sigrid Vandenbogaerde leads us to the third part of an adventure that began in the late nineties and gave birth to the CD's "Amazone" and "Moon at Noon".
The new repertoire marks a smooth shift towards more modern music, always emphasizing melodies as well as leaving a trace of exotic flavours ...
… Akin to Monet’s paintings, which exalt colour and disclose light, their notes fluctuate, mingle, and dance through the air, inviting the listener to re-imagine the world. […] An outstanding piece of work by an inspired quartet!
Anne Wolf: piano Stefan Bracaval: flutes
Sal La Rocca: double bass Falk Schrauwen: congas
With this "woody" quartet (piano, congas, bass and flutes) pianist Anne Wolf returns to her love for jazz and South American rhythms.
Returning to the sources of her inspiration, she revisits standards with a touch of bossa nova, samba, mambo, bolero, gospel or swing.
Her repertoire deliberately abandons personal compositions and approaches freer structures through carefully selected pieces from the domains of Stevie Wonder, A.C. Jobim, Michel Petrucciani, Wayne Shorter, Charles Loos and Steve Swallow.
Surrounded by marvelous soloists, the quartet of Anne offers a particular, warm and groovy sound, festive one could almost say!
[...] Wolf and Bracaval’s solos groove intensely from start to finish. The velvety sound of the flute stands out but blends harmoniously with the piano, the deep double-base and the woody congas. For melodic jazz lovers. . - MAD
Wolf In The Wood
Anne Wolf: piano Theo de Jong: acoustic bass guitar
The duo with bassist Theo de Jong is a setting that Anne Wolf really adores which in all complicity offers a great freedom of expression.
Mixing jazz standards and own compositions the two passionately celebrate the soul of this musical journey without boundaries
