Pianist Michel Reis, bassist Marc Demuth and drummer Paul Wiltgen are three of Luxembourg’s most prominent jazz musicians. They formed the Reis-Demuth-Wiltgen Trio in 1998 while still in high school and performed on a regular basis in and around Luxembourg for a couple of years. The trio reunited in 2011 and released their first album to widespread critical acclaim. Since the release, the band has toured extensively throughout the world and has appeared at major international jazz festivals in Europe, Asia, North and South America and Western Africa. The band’s sophomore album “Places In Between” was recorded in New York City and released in 2016. The Trio has now signed with the label CAM JAZZ, which released their latest work in 2018 entitled “Once In A Blue Moon”.

 

The repertoire of “Places In Between” was first premiered at a festival in Luxembourg where the trio featured the world-renowned saxophonist Joshua Redman. Since 2014 Redman has been playing several of the trio’s compositions with his own bands. Joshua Redman says that he fell in love with their music from the moment he heard them when his own quartet was playing a double bill with REIS/DEMUTH/WILTGEN at Festival Charlie Free in France. In March 2018, the trio toured in Europe with Joshua Redman as a featured guest. This tour included a performance at the Philharmonie Luxembourg featuring the music of REIS/DEMUTH/WILTGEN arranged for the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg by Michel Reis and multiple Grammy Award winning composer and conductor Vince Mendoza. In May to 2019, REIS/DEMUTH/WILTGEN collaborated once again with Redman for a few festival appearances in France, Switzerland and Luxembourg.
