Parisian bassist Claude Tchamitchian belongs to the generation of musicians that arose in the early 1990s and redefined the French new jazz in the footsteps of Louis Sclavis. Comfortable in free improvisation settings but still embracing the jazz tradition, Tchamitchian's playing is well-rounded and graceful, melodious yet creative.
The musical pieces of this project are like a suite of photos, each relating an individual story, but interlinked with all the others to narrate the whole story. Apparently simple, they are deliberately melodic and lightly harmonised for a maximum of 2 voices, through the strong link with the voice (song and texts) and the differing rhythms that create “universes” giving rise to dance tunes in the largest sense, rather than scenes with complex metric patterns. What the project aims to create is a close relationship between the music and its listeners, so that each person can invent his own story.

La pochette de l’album Traces sent le sable. Non pas qu’elle souffre d’un quelconque défaut de fabrication ou que les cartons aient traîné à la poussière avant leur diffusion ! Simplement, elle renvoie immédiatement au sable de la route, à cette poussière que charrient les pieds qui la foulent, en nombre et déterminés.

Claude Bolling Sextet - Jazzgang Amadeus Mozart (1965) Reissue 2007

The reissue of keyboardist Claude Bolling's recordings of the 1960s may prompt a positive reevaluation of his contributions. Bolling has been known, at least outside France, mostly for the flute-and-piano works he composed for Jean-Pierre Rampal; his recordings with Rampal hit a certain popular groove and stuck with the formula. They were undeniably appealing in a simple way, but they became fatally overexposed. Bolling's earlier recordings reveal more imagination in his treatment of the relationship between jazz and classical music. Take for example this 1965 album, recorded in Paris. It's one of the few successful jazz treatments of Mozart, who is notoriously resistant to jazz treatment. The difficulty comes as a result of Mozart's reliance on harmonic rhythm, or the speed of the rate of change of the harmonies in the music. This feature seems impossible to capture in jazz, which heavily relies on regular chord changes, but Bolling's solutions here, making use of a classic jazz sextet, are brilliantly imaginative.

Claude Challe is an idiosyncratic figure in France's musical landscape, more a catalyst and some might say visionary, rather than musician. Challe managed to be on the cutting edge of youth fashions across the 1960s and 1970s, reappearing in the late '90s with even greater appeal. His CV boasts that he is an international DJ, fashion and nightlife entrepreneur, and new age guru all of which is, more or less, true. Yet a large part of his reputation comes from his association with celebrities (via his nightclubs) and his reputation as a ladies man non pariel. This and the fact he's long been recognized as Paris's premier club DJ.
