Synopsis

The great pianist Fred Hersch, host of the Festival in 2021, described young Micah Thomas, born in 1997, as a musician "with a unique style and all the tools necessary to make a major contribution to the world of jazz." Micah Thomas arrives for the first time in Italy at Festival dei Due Mondi with his new work Reveal.

It is an aesthetic manifesto of sorts, the album confirming his exceptional instrumental talents and drawing on the history of modern jazz to fuel his innovative and powerfully organic conceptions of the age-old "piano-bass-drums" formula.

His playing, restlessly inventive and futuristic, remains deeply rooted in the history of music all performed with curiosity, patience, humor and care. Thanks to these peculiarities, Thomas is already standing out in a new generation of American jazz musicians determined to combine tradition in a subjective present.
