Jorge Rossy Vibes Quintet ft. Mark Turner & Billy Hart (USA/ESP)
JAZZ OF FOUR CONTINENTS
The ever-surprising Jorge Rossy! World-famous as the drummer with which Brad Mehldau redefined the art of the trio, he was first a trumpet player before switching for a time to the piano... And yet it is as a vibraphonist that he has been recording and performing in the past few years, an instrument which for him is the ideal combination of the percussive nature of the drums with the polyphony of a keyboard and a true melodic dimension. Based on solid friendships, his Vibes Quintet presents an all-star cast: the refined purity of the American saxophonist Mark Turner, the startlingly Monk-like phrasing of Catalan guitarist Jaume Llombart, and the superlative rhythm section of acoustic bassist Doug Weiss and legendary drummer Billy Hart. Luminous, nuanced, and with subtle interplay, the music not only reveals the range of talents of one of the major musicians of our time, but is above all a major opus of modern jazz, for which the quality of the soloists is constantly sublimated by the magic of the improvising.
