Paul Jarret


Born and raised in Paris, France, Paul Jarret is a young guitarist and composer playing mostly jazz and improvised music. Playing the jazz standards as well as radical free improvisation, he is involved in many projects as a leader, a co-leader or a sideman. In 2010 he has founded the band Pj5 which became his main project, a new kind of lyrical and modern jazz mixed with rock/pop sounds and improvised music. With this quintet he has been touring in France and Europe, won several awards (Jazz Migration #2, Jazz à La Défense 2012, and more), is very recognized by French jazz journalists and professionals and released three albums : WORD (2013), TREES (2016) and I TOLD THE LITTLE BIRD (2018). On this third album are playing two guests : Jozef Dumoulin and Isabel Sörling, also playing with the band on stage. Inspired by his own family (his mother is Swedish) he also founded in 2015 the EMMA project with the Swedish singer Hannah Tolf : a musical tribute to the Swedish exodus to USA in the 19th Century, blending improvised music, Swedish traditional music, as well as sacred music, and works of repetitive and minimalist composers. With these bands, some other projects (VIND, Sweet Dog, Ellinoa, Paul Jarret Trio…) and more, Paul collaborates with a lot of musicians and has numerous plans for the next years. He is part of the musical collective Pégazz & l'Hélicon since 2018. In 2019 he is chosen as the new "Talent Jazz Adami" which allows him to create a new band "Ghost Songs" with American drummer Jim Black, as well as Jozef Dumoulin on Fender Rhodes and Julien Pontvianne on saxophone

Ludovico Granvassu's 2021 Sonic Delights

Read "Ludovico Granvassu's 2021 Sonic Delights" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

Jazz is not a competitive sport and “Best Ofs" are misnomers. End of the year listicles have no bearing on the artistic standing of the albums they include, or on those they neglect, just like a five star review doesn't make the album it graces any better than it already is. But, apparently, humans ...

Read "Best Jazz Ghost Tracks and Other Spectral Jazz, Part 2" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

We continue our exploration of great tunes that--for a reason or another--were concealed to great effect but also never received the attention they deserved. We'll try to remedy that focusing on ghost-tracks, and other ghostly jazz. We were supposed to select ten tunes... but there were at least thirteen more, plus a couple more ghost-related tunes. ...
