Indifférence - La Compagnie Lubat

Indifférence – La Compagnie Lubat

Today, let’s listen to a completely different style ! An « undrunken swing valse », very sensitive. You are going to be conquered ! To keep a foot inside our musical journey, Jeanne Added will be our transition. In a dedicated paper on Citizen Jazz (link here), we learn a lot about her experiences. Among marking events,...
Shema – Pierre de Bethmann

Shema – Pierre de Bethmann

Stay with Jeanne Added and let’s listen to her in another context. The first time I listened to her was with Pierre de Bethmann septet in an album called “Oui”. I like very much the use of the voice as an instrument, mixed between the others. No words, not more present than the other instruments,...

Reincarnation of a Lovebird – Yes is a pleasant country

Today, I would like to share my little experience about Jeanne Added’s musical universe. We can found his name is more and more around French websites, from contemporary jazz to rock music. Since around ten years, she plays with musicians like Vincent Courtois, Yves Robert, Pierre de Bethmann, Baptiste Trotignon but also John Greaves or...
Unfinished Sympathy – Massive Attack

Unfinished Sympathy – Massive Attack

A week-end under the sign of relaxation. I suggest listening to a good old hit song! Listen to Unfinished sympathy by Massive Attack, with eyes closed. A delightful song from the first album « Blue Lines » of the British trip hop band. A mix of sonorities, between classical instruments, scratch, hip hop rhythmic and...

Paranoid Android – Brad Mehldau

Paranoid Android – Brad Mehldau

I hope you have had the time this week to listen carefully to Paranoid Android by Radiohead (last post). I suggest listening to it one last time before going deep into the piece which comes next. Today, we stay on Paranoid Android but with a version arranged and performed by Brad Mehldau live in piano...
Paranoid Android - Radiohead

Paranoid Android – Radiohead

“Paranoid Android”, a mythical song by Radiohead, published in 1997 on OK Computer. I like the atmosphere of this piece and its format with head moving passages. I love another version of this piece that I will suggest in the next post. So absorb this tune during the week so that you can really appreciate...
Behind the Yashmak – E.S.T. (Esbjörn Svensson Trio)

Behind the Yashmak – E.S.T. (Esbjörn Svensson Trio)

A tune I have listened to a lot of times when it went out in 2002 : Behind the Yashmak by E.S.T (Esbjörn Svensson Trio). I think I became aware of the musical power of a crescendo by listening to it. Crescendo is the general principle of this track. The first two minutes establish a...
Chant bien fatal – Workshop de Lyon

Chant bien fatal – Workshop de Lyon

I had the chance to see this band in a theater called “Le Carré” in Château-Gontier, in France, several years ago during the Europa Jazz Festival. It was one of my first jazz concert in an excellent acoustical environment. This kind of music is often called improvised music because it sounds quite contemporary, not as...
Homelands - Nitin Sawhney

Homelands – Nitin Sawhney

For this first post, I have decided to make you listen to this beautiful track from an amazing album there is a good chance you already know: Beyond Skin by Nitin Sawhney. “Homelands” is more than one tune. It is a mix of several influences, like the whole album. Nitin Sawhney was born in the...
