Swing XXL, obsessive groove, demonic virtuosity, Eric Legnini shapes a jazz in perpetual movement really impressive. From hard bop to pure funk, the Belgian pianist has established himself as a reference of his instrument. A student of Richie Beirach, a disciple of Phineas Newborn and Herbie Hancock, Legnini is above all the nuclear weapon of the swing. And when the groove of the soul sets fire to his hands, he approaches a Les McCann and his technique is engulfed in powerful rhythmic meanders. With Waxx Up, he signs a new high of pure groove, to celebrate once again his passion for the soul and the funk of the seventies. "The wax is my source! My culture is the vinyl, the sample, the 70s, "assures this patented digger, which never misses an opportunity to rummage an LP crate. An enraged groove in which he embarked Yael Naim, Hugh Coltman, Charles X, Mathieu Boogaerts, Anaëlle Potdevin, Ibrahim Maalouf and, for four titles, Michelle Willis.
