After two albums on Le Chant du Monde at Harmonia Mundi, then “Nomade Sonore” (Revelation 2015 – Jazz Magazine) on Gaya, Éric Séva proves himself to be an atypical musician whose curiosity feeds his creative spirit. He continues with this fourth opus “Body and Blues” dedicated to the blues, to the blue note. In this new project he plumbs the essence of his own sensitivity, his own story. Blues is the verbalization of a constant struggle against adversity. Thanks to the sounds of the baritone, soprano and sopranino saxophones sublimated by the unexpected use of a wah-wah pedal, blues finds an unexpected voice with Éric Séva.

Beauty is another common feature, which they each display in their own way. And in the circle of fifths these pieces are very close to one another.

He never achieved his ambition of studying with Maurice Ravel, but was always enthralled by the symphonic poem and the concerto. His masterpieces, such as An American in Paris and the opera Porgy and Bess, greatly enriched the American musical heritage.

Heavenly is Johnny Mathis' most successful regular album release, exceeded in his catalog only by the compilation Johnny's Greatest Hits and the seasonal Merry Christmas collection. It's not hard to understand why; this record is the epitome of Mathis' approach to music. Standards like "More Than You Know" and "Moonlight Becomes You" are joined by show tunes like "Hello, Young Lovers" and "Stranger in Paradise" and a few more recent titles, such as the Burt Bacharach-composed title song and "That's All." The tempos are slow, the strings swell, and Mathis' vulnerable tenor, dripping with tender emotion yet never missing a beat, soars and swoops over all. The best track, a revelation when it appeared on this album, is "Misty," a treatment of Erroll Garner's jazz piano classic with a newly added lyric by Johnny Burke.
