Benoit Delbecq: The Weight of Light

Read "The Weight of Light" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


The concept of light having weight may seem unusual but in listening to this solo set by pianist Benoit Delbecq, the idea starts to make sense. His style of playing mixes feathery improvisations with clanking rhythms that bring a feeling of mass and density to his work. Delbecq uses a lot of prepared piano ...

Benoit Delbecq: The Weight Of Light

Read "The Weight Of Light" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


The experience of sound can incite ruminations on the laws of physics, on geometrics, time, space and spirituality. The music on pianist Benoit Debecq's The Weight Of Light--his first solo recording in more than a decade--does just that. It also conjures images of the shape of the African continent that birthed a jumble of rhythmic designs. ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
