Some lovely jazz projects to work on at this busy time of the year: Saxophone player and multi-instrumental artist/composer Sylvain Rifflet, in collaboration with the American saxophone player Jon Irabagon, as well as the musicians from Rivet’s group Alphabet, will have a DVD and CD on release on French label Jazz Village/Harmonia Mundi this month.
The young French lady trumpet Airelle Besson player composed, played and produced a beautiful, subtle album called “Prelude” with the Brasilian guitarist Nelson Veras, which will be on release on French label Naïve in October. And Maxime Bender, saxophone, will have his new album out on the French label Laborie Jazz, in September.
Arto Lindsay will be back in France to present his current “best of” project with several concerts, amongst others at the New Morning club in Paris, in November.
We are glad to have been able to agree on a collaboration with the French contemporary jazz group with touches of world music, l’Hijaz’Car, released here on the Buda label and very well received internationally. The CD will be released in the US through Allegro shortly.
