Thomas Gonzalez Trio was conceived by Thomas Gonzalez (drums) in 2014 and their first album “Moïra”- inspired by Gonzalez’s globetrotting experiences – was released the following year. With the second opus “Elements”, featuring Nicolas Michiel (piano) and Jacinto Carbajal (bass), the band stays faithful to their modern and accessible style of jazz, blending pop sounding melodies with traditional rhythms. What is also perceptible is a desire to explore new horizons by contrasting African and Latin American rhythms with a purposely binary sound. The outcome of this sonic research and homogenous orchestration is a dream-like set of original compositions whereas tension persists in the sweet spot between rupture and stability.
