For Tobias Meinhart (“One of Germany’s greatest talents on tenor sax” – JazzThing), it was a spell as a young roadie with the Bob Brookmeyer Orchestra that first sparked his love for jazz. Now, more than a decade after moving to New York, he presents ‘The Painter’ (Sunnyside 2021). “The creation of music shares much in common with creation in the visual arts. Both musicians and visual artists speak of and deal in colours, hues and textures in their compositional processes,” he writes, adding that The Painter is “meant to brighten the world’s canvas”. Meinhart recorded the album with Eden Ladin, Matt Penman and Obed Calvaire, his regular partners on New York City stages including the 55 Bar and Birdland.Tobias Meinhart (tenor & soprano sax, alto fl, voc), Eden Ladin (p), Matt Penman (b), Obed Calvaire (dr)
