At this time, Marcel Worms' project New Blues for Piano is coming to an end, twenty years after it began. More than 200 new blues pieces from around 50 different countries have been written for him. The composers were free to use or not to use the characteristic elements of the blues, such as blue notes, a certain series of chords, etc. Most pieces are completely written out while in others the performer is expected to improvise. On this first part of this album, a selection from the most recent repertory of new blues (2011-2016) can be heard. For the second part of this album, an anthology of pieces from the repertoire of the entire project that are most dear to Marel Worms and that he plays most often during his tours around the world.
