Description du produit

After leaving a strong impression on Japanese jazz fans with his three albums released from Venus Records in the late 1990s, Archie Shepp returned with this smash hit in 2001. Also known as 'French Ballads' in Japan, this album consists entirely of French songs and songs associated with France, where Shepp had resided for many years. The program includes compositions by Michel Legrand and Sidney Bechet, the ubiquitous 'Les Feuilles Mortes' ('Autumn Leaves') and attractive 'Sous Le Ciel De Paris' ("Under the Paris Skies"). The album concludes with 'Deja Vu', an original composition by Shepp. Shepp plays sweet and romantic French melodies with a lot of emotions but he rejects saccharine sentimentality. This clash of characteristics brings tension to his ballad playing and makes it riveting. Shepp also manages to relax and have fun with upbeat tunes such as 'L'Ame Des Poetes' and 'April in Paris'. Recorded at 'The Studio' in New York on June 11 and 12, 2001, by Katherine Miller. Mixed and mastered by Venus 24bit Hyper Magnum Sound System. Swing Journal Gold Disc and winner of 2001 Swing Journal Jazz Disc Silver Award. Personnel: Archie Shepp - tenor sax Harold Mabern - piano George Mraz - bass Billy Drummond - drums

Critique

Archie Shepp has long established a reputation as a fiery avant-garde jazz stylist, though he is remarkably restrained in this collection of ballads recorded in 2001. The rhapsodic songs help restrain him somewhat, along with the presence of the terrific rhythm section, consisting of pianist Harold Mabern, bassist George Mraz, and drummer Billy Drummond. 'What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life' has a few rough edges to retain Shepp's personal flavor, while the rhumba setting of Sidney Bechet's 'Petite Fleur' works well, too. Mabern's lush introduction to "Les Feuilles Mortes" (Autumn Leaves) sets up a touching, spacious arrangement. Shepp opens Lerner & Loewe's infrequently performed 'Gigi' unaccompanied, producing a majestic performance. The snappy treatment of 'April in Paris' swings like the famous tune should, while he also retains the well-known 'Pop Goes the Weasel' quote inserted in Basie's version. All in all, this is an enjoyable date. EDITOR RATING: 4 STARS --All Music Guide (Ken Dryden)
