Erik Truffaz: Saloua

Read "Saloua" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

I am pleased and saddened to report that this is one of the best pieces of music I have heard in 2005. It is a pleasure to have discovered the fifth album in the US for Blue Note, and ninth album overall, by this French composer, bandleader, and trumpet player. Yet it is also sad, because ...

Read "Saloua" reviewed by Paul Olson

French trumpeter Erik Truffaz's sonic world is a benevolent, positive one, fusing elements of Arabic and African musics, hip-hop, groove, dub, and pop into one electronically seasoned stew. Saloua, his first CD since 2003's The Walk of the Giant Turtle, continues its eclectic synthesis of the above musical ingredients, but with new musicians. Here Truffaz's group ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
