Watch: Mathias Eick Performs For My Grandmothers
A former member of Jaga Jazzist and a renowned bandleader now on ECM, Mathias Eick is known best for his clarion trumpet playing, his tone always expressing the sentimental heart at the core of his compositions. But in this stunning song called “For My Grandmothers,” he translates those moods to piano, keyboard, and, most surprising of all, falsetto vocals. It’s a captivating little number, beautifully captured in Oslo’s Tøyen Church. Eick plays Big Ears 2019.
