With the release of his sixth album, Jolof, Herve Samb showcases his exceptional instrumental technique and his talents as a composer, but also a personal vision of his art and the message he intends to entrust to it. The title, Jolof, refers to the ancient empire, the territorial, ethnic and cultural constitution from which flows the present day Senegal. Born in Rufisque, not far from Dakar, Samb turns to his African roots, without neglecting what has continued to feed his music over a career rich in multiple encounters and experiences within the world of jazz and blues. From this blissful collusion Sabar Jazz was born, a concept that Samb has made into a style in its own right after a formal and identity-based quest that begun on his previous records, Time To Feel and Teranga. Jolof is a poetic album, displaying controlled tension between expressive power and lyrical phrasing. The album fully submits to the ancestral tradition while at the same time allowing Samb the freedom to move away from it, thanks to the “let it go” of jazz.
