News: Sylvain Rifflet - Refocus

Posted September 15, 2017

Sylvain Rifflet, a French jazz artist and composer who was awarded a first price in the French « Victoires de la Musique » for his previous release is certainly one of the most interesting and talented saxophone players of the current generation.
It is such a privilege for Rifflet to have been able to inspire himself by a mythical creation of Stan Getz!
Getz, who figures on the pantheon of Sylvain Rifflet’s inspirations, inspires the artist to create a cult without limit to the tradition of jazz. The original Getz release of 1961 figures high amongst the great jazz classics.
“Re-Focus” is thus strongly inspired by the project of this American Jazz saxophone player and composer, but Sylvain Rifflet has created his own compositions, with the exception of one or two close to the originals, and his solo saxophone performance is accompanied by a splendid orchestra interpretation, with the result of a work of great delicacy and sensuality.
