Lean is a New York City-based trio consisting of saxophonist Jerome Sabbagh, bassist Simon Jermyn and drummer Allison Miller. To appreciate what this forward-driving jazz threesome can do, follow the dictates of the trio’s self-titled debut…and lean in. Listen closely. Pay attention. This hour-long album is rich with compositional creation, improvisational imagination and masterful musicianship. Sabbagh is from France but has called NYC home since the early ‘70s. He’s played with Victor Lewis, Bill Stewart, Billy Drummond, and others; and has led or co-led several groups over the years. Jermyn was raised in Ireland and since moving to New York City has been on stage with John Hollenbeck, Tony Malaby, Dan Tepfer, and many more; issued solo records; and is associated with other NYC-area bands.
Aujourd'hui Simon GOUBERT est à la tête d'un nouveau quartet, en compagnie de Yannick RIEU -saxophoniste canadien "préféré" du public et des musiciens français, Sophia DOMANCICH - pianiste de L'ONJ de Didier Levallet, et Michel ZENINO - contrebassiste complice dans diverses formations notamment le trio de Gordon Beck.
Une des particularités de ce quartet est d'être constitué de quatre individualités ayant chacune une expérience de chef d'orchestre, leur permettant d'emmener la musique, de donner aux compositions une dimension supplémentaire.
C'est grâce à ces musiciens prestigieux que nous avons pu tenter cette expérience passionnante.
Anthology is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's 26th album, and first anthology album, released in November 2002. It is a two-disc set with all the songs personally picked by Simon. Over the course of the two discs, every one her studio albums (up until that point) is represented with at least one song (not including her just-released Christmas album or her 1993 opera, Romulus Hunt: A Family Opera, on which she only actually performs on one track). The booklet features numerous photographs from Simon's archives, as well as extensive liner notes by Jack Mauro, a lifelong fan of Simon's.
