Naïssam Jalal: Un autre monde

Read "Un autre monde" reviewed by Henning Bolte


Some may see the flute as an odd one out in jazz. For France that certainly does not apply. France has Michel Edelin from the older generation and, for example, Magic Malik, Eve Risser, Sylvaine Hélary and Naïssam Jalal from the younger. A flautist needs good sonic allies to embed flute sounds in and/or ...

Sylvaine Hélary: Glowing Life

Read "Glowing Life" reviewed by Henning Bolte


Is flute an odd one out in the present jazz field? Not really and not at all in France. France not only has Michel Edelin in the older generation, it has still more flautists in the younger generation that are also bandleaders in their own right, for example Magic Malik, Eve Risser, Naïssam Jalal and, of ...

Spring Roll: Episodes

Read "Episodes" reviewed by John Sharpe


French flautist Sylvaine Hélary's Spring Roll follow up their ambitious debut Printemps (Ayler, 2015) with another adventurous outing on Episodes. While the first disc incorporated words and voices, the twist this time is that Hélary commissioned works from three of New York City's finest composer-improvisers, pianists Matt Mitchell and Kris Davis, and saxophonist Dan Blake, to ...

Michel Edelin Quartet: Resurgence

Read "Resurgence" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Pur facendo per ovvi motivi riferimento al veterano flautista Michel Edelin, che ne è il titolare nonché l'autore di tutto il materiale tematico, questo lavoro trae i motivi della propria riuscita più che mai dalla somma delle forze in campo, anche proprio nella loro diversità. Si segnalano specificatamente le presenze di un almeno ...

Indigo Trio and Michel Edelin: The Ethiopian Princess Meets The Tantric Priest

Read "The Ethiopian Princess Meets The Tantric Priest" reviewed by John Sharpe


Given the paucity of flute trios in the normal course of events, and the appearance of two almost simultaneously on the same label, it was only a matter of time before the Paris-based Rogue Art imprint brought the two main protagonists together.
