Nicolas Thys is probably the most wanted bass player in the country. His appearance on a string of albums on our label certainly suggests as much. Even though he participates in highly diverse projects (from contemporary and impro over post-bop and hardbop to ethnic music), he is mainly known for his fine nose for lyricism.
He can make his electric bass guitar sing like no other and is also a true genius on double bass. It has become impossible to imagine our national jazz scene without him, in fact. He is always game to help young, budding jazz talent on its way as well.
