Joachim Schoenecker Trio & Minguet String Quartet
Joachim Schoenecker Trio
& Minguet String Quartet


"Smooth" didn’t used to be a dirty word in the Jazz world. It meant someone was suave, sophisticated-yet-street-smart, confident and cool under pressure. Well, Joachim Schoenecker is one smooth guitarist. His subtle and shimmering tone, both on electric and acoustic guitar, thrills without overwhelming any of the other instruments (bass, drums, and string quartet). The phrasing is delicate and deliberate at the same time. The compositions range from emotionally tender ballads to gritty, lightening-paced bursts of tension, all glued together by tasteful accompaniment from the Minguet String Quartet. Nocturnes is a brilliant, atmospheric statement from one of Jazz music’s rising stars.
