Immense pleasure listening to Nomad, the new album by pianist Simon Denizart, announced at Laborie Jazz, on April 23, 2021.
Simon Denizart is supported by Canadian percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Elli Miller Maboungou. Together, they achieve a real tour de force with this essential music, easy to access and which nevertheless translates a beautiful synthesis of jazz, classical, world. Hats off because inspiration soars high, and the success is total. In two of them , they fill the soundtrack, between improvisation, delay effect and unobtrusive virtuosity, anything like that at Jazz Current.
The listener travels through the rich and eclectic textures produced by the piano. Thus we sometimes hear plucked strings imitating a bass or a guitar, chords processed with different effects producing symphonic sounds or even rock and electronic sounds thanks to the distortions and “delay” used to highlight the melodies.
