Following his trio debut ‘Triptych’ last year, trumpeter Matthias Lindermayr presents his duo record ‘Sequence’ with long-time companion and ECM Recording Artist Matthieu Bordenave on tenor saxophone. In contrast to its technical title, ‘Sequence’ is a very lyrical record, sacral at times. Like two figure skaters, the voices gracefully glide along and whirl around in perfect synch. A fitting comparison, as the recording session was equally exhausting, due to the level of concentration required to perform this music. The minimalist line-up and the hyper-focused playing gives the album both a breath-like purity and solemn depth.

    Matthias Lindermayr, coming from a family of musicians (his father is a pianist and his mother teaches early music education), received classical piano lessons as a child; he learned to play the trumpet when he was twelve. He also played electric guitar in rock bands as a teenager. He studied jazz trumpet with Claus Reichstaller at the University of Music and Theatre in Munich, then began composition studies with Gregor Hübner. Tiger Okoshi proved to be an important mentor, with whom he studied at Berklee College of Music in 2014/2015. He continued his studies in 2016 at the Jazz Institute Berlin with John Hollenbeck and Gerard Presencer.
