about

(ENG) The ever-surprising Jorge Rossy! World-famous as the drummer with which Brad Mehldau redefined the art of the trio, he was first a trumpet player before switching for a time to the piano... And yet it is as a vibraphonist that he has recorded this new album, an instrument which for him is the ideal combination of the percussive nature of the drums with the polyphony of a keyboard and a true melodic dimension.

Based on solid friendships, his Vibes Quintet presents an all-star cast : the refined purity of the American saxophonist Mark Turner, the startlingly Monk-like phrasing of Catalan guitarist Jaume Llombart, and the superlative rhythm section of acoustic bassist Doug Weiss and legendary drummer Al Foster (the regular accompanist of Miles Davis, Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner), whose talents as a composer are also highlighted.

Luminous, nuanced, and with subtle interplay, "Beyond Sunday" not only reveals the range of talents of one of the major drummers of our time, but is above all a major opus of contemporary jazz, for which the quality of the soloists is constantly sublimated by the magic of the improvising.

(FR) Etonnant Jorge Rossy ! Mondialement connu comme le batteur avec lequel le pianiste Brad Mehldau a redéfini l’art du trio, il a débuté comme trompettiste et s’est un temps consacré au piano… C’est pourtant au vibraphone qu’il signe ce nouvel album, sur un instrument qui, selon lui, combine idéalement le caractère percussif de la batterie avec la polyphonie d’un clavier et une vraie dimension mélodique.

Fondé sur des amitiés anciennes, son Vibes Quintet présente un casting en forme de all-stars, associant le lyrisme épuré du saxophoniste ténor américain Mark Turner avec le phrasé étonnamment monkien du guitariste catalan Jaume Llombart, soutenus par une rythmique superlative formée du contrebassiste Doug Weiss et du légendaire Al Foster, batteur attitré de Miles Davis, Joe Henderson ou McCoy Tyner, dont les talents de compositeur sont également mis à l’honneur.

Lumineux et tout en nuances, « Beyond Sunday » révèle non seulement l’étendue des talents d’un des musiciens majeurs de notre époque mais surtout, il sonne comme un grand opus du jazz moderne, dont l’assurance des solistes est constamment sublimée par la magie de l’improvisation.

“The beauty of the playing arouses admiration”, Jazzenzo (NL)

“One of the very best albums of this end of the year”, French Jazz Academy

“Delicate, attentive, preserved from all contrivance, from all gimmick”, Notes de Jazz (FR)

“Album of the Week” – Marlbank (UK)

"Rossy made a conscious decision to change from drums to vibes, via previous stints on trumpet and piano, determining that his latest instrument was just the right consolidating vehicle to incorporate all the characteristics of the preceding ones. Judging by this CD it was a very good decision indeed." ★ ★ ★ ★ All About Jazz (USA)
