Jens Thomas is a singer/song writer, performer, composer and improviser. I haven't heard any music of him before this album: Goethe! Gesang Der Geister. In short it can be called probably: Grooving with Goethe :)
Jens Thomas uses just his voice and the piano to make a mixture of classcial Lied, Songwiting, Pop, something similar to Rap and Jazz out of poems by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Its a very spiritual poem selection, and therefor this CD is always some kind of esoteric/Spiritual journey - and shows how much Goethe has still to tell us, from a distance of 150 years, if being interpreted in such a intuitive and emphatic way as Jens Thomas does. If you speak German, don't miss to listen to one or two tracks of this CD in a shop (or on myspace: www.myspace.com/pianovoice ) - maybe you will be amazed! But be aware thats it almost impossible to just listen to it while doing something else .. it will draw you into its world ;)
