Renaud Garcia-Fons - "Le Souffle des cordes" Album - Jazzy hour, January 18th
The musical genius transforms each thought into pure sound, dedicates virtuosity to musical emotion, transforms pride into virtue and perfects any association of genres, styles and aesthetics. It's the perfect crucible to offer to the lucky listener something unique and challenging. Renauld Garcia Fons is one of the biggest bassists of all time, a virtuoso who manifested his genius through a few albums where we see the complete harmony between jazz, classic and ethnical. His style causes wonder and is immediately recognizable.
After multiple successes alongside musicians with whom he deepened the quarter tone and the oriental breath, Renauld Garcia Fons found the right moment for a meeting place for classical and ethnically traditional instruments. The project is called "Le Souffle des Cordes" and reunites compositions and improvisations for stringed instruments from different parts of the world. The repertory is the result of an intense process of composition which respects the authenticity of the articulation of each instrument, as well as the style and culture of the place of origin. Turkey, Spain, France, the fervor, the lyricism and rigor are emotionally harmonized out of a real desire and knowledge of modelling the sound after the unitary, ideal form of the world in which we wish to live. This album of rare beauty represents the true change between cultures.
