Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording is a manifesto: modernism, culture, temporality, style, improvisation are all concepts with which Joël Grare plays, like a juggler. At a time of globalization, of standardization of cultures, this disc lets us hear the vision of the world of one man, at one given time. The Paris-Instanbul-Shanghï Ensemble (Chinese violin, theorbo, bass and percussion) forms the musical base of this invitation to travel. The guests, such as Claire Lefiliâtre, contribute their personality by taking up the learned or popular themes. This ć«group», somewhere between a chamber music ensemble and a traditional one, plays standards like Jazzmen. Their standards? Magnificent themes stemming from Spain, Turkey, China, Read more ancient music...Analyzing these melodies well beyond their borders, thoroughly enjoying them to interpret them better, improvising, composing, whether or not in the style of their country or their period, following his mood, the taste of tea, the moment; welcome to the world of Joël Grare.
