After revisiting New Orleans airs, swing, gypsy, contemporary, jazz, and classical music, Jean-Francois Foliez unveils here a first album with a powerhouse quartet. Alongside pianist Casimir Liberski, back from a long stay in New York where he deepened his playing alongside musicians such as Ornette Coleman and Brad Mehldau, we find the solid rhythm section of Janos Bruneel on double bass and Xavier Roge on drums, bringing energy and precision to the arrangements. Born in 1984, Jean-Francois Foliez began his studies at 4 years old. At 16 he began playing tenor saxophone with the big band of Liege. He has studied at the Royal Conservatory of Liege, as well as with artists such as Jean-Pierre Peuvion and Benjamin Dietels.
