HYMNS - CARLO MUSCAT & TONY TIXIER
Carlo's sound and compositions are outstanding, and the interplay between him and the ensemble shows a very deep communication with the tradition of improvising music.
Carlo's fine taste is on display throughout this project. Lyrical music with a bounce, refreshing in its conceptual simplicity.
A record that manages to carve out a unique sound of its own, representing a wise and imaginative approach to programming. An eclectic, yet focused, body of work.

Saxophonist and composer Carlo Muscat began his musical education at the age of eight. A few years later, he picked up the saxophone and started to discover a love for jazz music. During the early years of his career, he made a name for himself through local performances in Malta before beginning to collaborate with renowned local and international musicians. In 2013, he moved to Paris, France, where he had the opportunity to explore the scene and learn from other musicians, both by listening to and collaborating with them. The Parisian scene led to the recording of his first album, 'The Sound Catalogues', which stemmed from an earlier project at the 2012 Malta Jazz Festival. During this period, he continued working on new compositions for recordings and furthering his collaborations.
Carlo has performed a number of concerts around Europe, including in Paris, London, Istanbul, Milan, Berlin, Kyiv, and Rotterdam. He now has five albums under his name as a leader and will be releasing his sixth album in 2023; he also appears on another five albums as a sideman.
He describes his musical journey as a process that is ceaseless and expressive, allowing for freedom of interpretation. He is known for his fresh take on the genre and his unabashed use of improvisation, making the tunes of his compositions markedly his own.
Currently, he is most active between Kyiv, Paris, and Malta as a performer, composer, and private tutor. He is also the co-owner and director of the live music venue Storeroom.
