German-American pianist Benjamin Lackner makes his ECM debut with a star-studded quartet of Manu Katché on drums, trumpeter Mathias Eick and Jérôme Regard on bass.

Mathias and Manu share a longstanding association with the label and their respectively unique instrumental signatures can be traced across this set of exclusively original material - eight pieces by Benjamin, one by Jérôme. The bassist and the leader's partnership goes all the way back to 2006, when, Jérôme joined Lackner's trio, which remains active until today. Two decades of close collaboration have moulded them into intimate colleagues, who complement each other's lines intuitively. Mathias Eick and Manu Katché's effortless musicianship enhances the quartet's fluid interplay.

Last Decade was recorded in Studios La Buissonne, Pernes-Les-Fontaines and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Benjamin Lackner: piano
Mathias Eick: trumpet, voice
Jérôme Regard: double bass
Manu Katché: drums


"The music is strikingly melodic...spacious and deliberative, brimming with patiently articulated ruminations played out without flash or pretense as they explore the depths of time-stopping, enchanting loveliness." - ****1/2 All About Jazz

"A wonderful set of tunes, filled with character, subtlety and imaginative interplay." - **** UK Vibe

"Lackner has created a focussed yet spacious quartet sound that floats with an easy grace and lyricism that is greatly appealing. In addition, the group also love a good groove, and these too can be heard and felt as the four musicians take delight in each other's playing." - Jazz Views
