Kaya Meller Quartet - Reflections
Kaya Meller - trumpet, flugelhorn, composer;
Eloá Gonçalves - piano;
Tin Džaferović - double bass;
Peter Lenz - drums;
The album is a collection of work and reflections from various places in the world which have had a huge impact on me and my creativity.
The music was inspired by people I have met, museums I was able to visit, and beautiful views I have seen in the sky. Experiences I have lived during my travels influenced not only my music, but also my perspective on life.
To paraphrase a dear friend of mine - work and be better than day before. I hope that looking at the Tree of Life on the cover and listening to this music will provoke you to stop for a moment and reflect on the meaning of life, choices, and appreciating what you own.
With this work I would like to thank to all my teachers and mentors who I have had an opportunity to study with, and to those who believe in me and support me on my musical path.
