Coup de Coeur

Posted September 20, 2018

In September 2014, at the backstage of our Paris concert, Dairo asked me to produce his album. “An approach unattached to any existing format, an innovative approach to Jazz. Something collage-like using all the tones of instruments I play, nuances, and styles”. After passionately telling me about his image on what he desired he muttered, “I think the title should be Last Album or Last Picture”. From a contemporary French style to Free Jazz, he was someone with an immeasurable range of musicality. This one individual played the sopranino sax, soprano sax, alto sax, tenor sax, baritone sax, flute, alto flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, even drums, Timpani, and percussions freely. Dairo Miyamoto was an indispensable presence in my music. I never thought for a second that he could ever leave my side. Sealed with his brilliance on his approach of always managing to cut through your expectations in the most delightful way, at times inviting smiles from all his collaborators, or at times shaking them to the core… I dedicate this album to Dairo and Satomi.

Hazzan is a Jazz creation embracing Jewish liturgical music, improvisational sequences and infectious rhythms. The name Hazzan means cantor in the Jewish tradition. It came to me from a Rabbi commenting on my performance of Adon Olam as a jazz duet for the Jewish French Foundation (FJF) in 2008. He said: “When you played, your notes sounded like a prayer. You are a hazzan on your saxophone”.

French soprano saxophonist Emile Parisien’s “Sfumato” concert at Jazz in Marciac on 8 August 2017 was unforgettable and has been captured for ever on both CD & DVD.
“Sfumato live in Marciac” is packed full of tension, excitement and turbulence. And yet is firmly grounded in jazz, brimming over with playfulness and adventures of improvisation; it is a testament to the intensity and to the magic of live jazz.

Listening To Pictures is Hassell’s first new release since Last Night The Moon Came Dropping Its Clothes In The Street (ECM, 2009).
Hassell’s ‘fourth world’ fusion of hi-tech minimalism with world rhythms proves the 81-year-old is still experimental after all these years

“Fuchs is at her best when she’s pushing her voice. She sounds great in the less densely produced songs, but when she’s in the thick of a wall of sound, she’s extraordinary. Not many contemporary artists have the voice to survive in this kind of rich, throwback production environment. Fuchs thrives in it ». By Blues Rock.
