Igor Gehenot - Showcase Espace Gould
Igor Gehenot, piano / Alex Tassel, bugle / Viktor Nyberg, double bass / Jérôme Klein, drums
When the young pianist came knocking on the Igloo label, he was barely 22 years old. Today, at just 30, he is already presenting his fourth album as a leader. Since 2016, Igor has surrounded himself with an international team, the bugler Alex Tassel (Manu Katché, Baptiste Trotignon, Dj Cam, Jacques Gamblin, André Manoukian, ...) the Luxembourg drummer Jérôme Klein and the young Swedish double bassist Viktor Nyberg (Pierrick Pedron, Jacky Terrasson, Johny O'neal, ...). An adventure that will earn them the Octave for best jazz album with the album "Delta" in 2018.
And as you don't change a winning team, after a series of concerts around the world, the quartet comes back with this new album recorded in Alex Tassel's studio on the Brittany coast.
Between post-bop and contemporary music, "Cursiv" presents strong melodies, intimist - even introspective - atmospheres crossed by some groovy fulgurances. A piece of original music, in tune with its time, without frills but going straight to the heart.
