STEPHAN NOEL LANG PRESENTS: TENDER TRACKS
On his second trio album, Stephan Noel Lang presents a cycle of 11 evocative originals that seem like tender tracks of personal experience and reflect the artist's almost minimalist concentration on the essential.
Lang's music switches seamlessly between different idioms and with its fluidly developing motifs, tells little musical stories that send the listener on an associative journey, as it were, sensitively accompanied by his fellow musicians on double bass and drums.

The new album is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Deezer, YouTube and Amazon Music
"Stephan Noel Lang (...) draws on a variety of sources, ranging from Baroque to Soul, Latin and Afro-Cuban music and Tango-Nuevo. With his trio (...) he combines these influences into an independent, highly creative and very melodic style."- Jazz Podium
"Stephan Noel Lang reaches for the full on the grand piano, pulls off complex vamps, leaves no questions unanswered when it comes to changes and voicings and glides into his solos quite naturally, staying at the core of the song and weaving arcs from there." - Volker Präkelt
