Cinema Paradiso is the band of saxophonist Kurt Van Herck, drummer and percussionist Eric Thielemans and guitarist Willem Heylen. Already in the 1990s, the duo Van Herck and Thielemans took inspiration from the rich repertoire of the influential American jazz drummer, percussionist and composer Paul Motian. Decades later, with Heylen at their side, Motian’s free jazz is taken to a new level. The trio almost literally breathes new life into his music. They start from his compositions, improvise to his legacy, and complement it with their own work. The result is music that exudes tranquillity, musical freedom and playfulness.
