Fondant les inspirations de Cuba, de La Nouvelle-Orléans, du Harlem de Duke Ellington et de l'Afrique au creuset du jazz, au mouvement du swing et à sa propre poésie, le pianiste franco-israélien, nommé "Révélation" aux Victoires du jazz 2015, présente enfin le second chapitre de son projet "Modern Times". Avec un groupe élargi pour l'occasion aux dimensions d'un quintet avec clarinette, saxophone alto et percussions… voici "The Parade"

Providing a foretaste of his album "Music Is My Home", Raphaël Imbert has now released "Prologue", a 10'' collector "gatefold" vinyl. Alongside emblematic musicians (Big Ron Hunter, Alabama Slim etc.) and young up-coming French stars (first and foremost Anne Paceo), the saxophonist takes on the role of a top-notch ethno-musicologist, escorting us along the roads of the American "Deep South". With an unparalleled knowledge of groove, he comes within touching distance of the roots of blues, jazz and soul.

Stan Kenton could not and would not confine himself to only one category. His ensembles were musical hermaphrodites and his band was his instrument, on whose sound he worked with unusual instrumentation and above all with courageous arrangers, composers and idiosyncratic soloists. In 1972, after a break of several years, the Stan Kenton Orchestra went on tour through Europe. At this time Stan Kenton was preceded by his reputation as the legend of progressive jazz.

On the heels of his fantastic 2014 album, New Song, bassist Omer Avital delivers an enthralling performance on Abutbul Music, his debut for the Paris-based Jazz Village label. The program embraces hard-bop as its guiding spirit, but uses numerous other genres as touchstones, including Israeli folk music, funk, Afro-beat and various Latin styles. Avital, who studied Arab music theory during a three-year hiatus from New York in the early 2000s, navigates these diverse idioms with sure-footed poise, as does his agile quintet, which includes the inventive pianist Yonathan Avishai, the effervescent drummer Ofri Nehemya, the keen tenor and soprano saxophonist Asaf Yuria and the astute tenor saxophonist Alexander Levin.

Having made an enormous contribution to the establishment of the Nashville Sound and the modernisation of country music, Anita Kerr felt the need to expand her artistic horizons and in 1965, made the move from Nashville to Hollywood. She wanted to work with different people, to get her own songs recorded, to play jazz, to conduct an orchestra, to take on more ambitious and more varied projects musically, and to form a vocal group which, rather than be confined to studio sessions, might also appear in club and concert settings. Her arrival on the West Coast was well timed. She had just fought off The Beatles to win a Grammy for the album We Dig Mancini and she was quickly able to assemble a stellar Anita Kerr Singers (B.J Baker: alto, Gene Merlino: tenor; Bob Tebow: bass, with Anita herself as soprano and soloist) and secure a contract more tailored to her needs with Warner Brothers. The result over the next two years, were these five superbly fashioned albums.
