    11 tracks, 9 new compositions and 2 new arrangements in a style that often leaves the realm of what is tradionnally described as "jazz".The concept of improvising in a music that also includes large parts arranged in depth has remained. Matt’s influences and inspirations concerning rhythm often come from Africa and the Middle East, harmonies from jazz and impressionism. Matt studied film music composition, which becomes apparent in all these different atmospheres and colours that frame Meander’s music, it really is a kind of storytelling which led to the title “Tales from Meanderthal”

    Emmanuelle Ragot (Letzebuerger Land), September 2013
    'It’s hard to describe the impression these very diverse and elaborate pieces, both in scored and improvised sequences, create for the listener
    Strong structure, incredible rhythms, suggestive melodies and superb sound. The result is a perfect synthesis of very different musical styles leading to a completely autonomous personal style.'
