about

[FR] Le pianiste martiniquais Mario Canonge et le contrebassiste marseillais Michel Zenino forment un duo atypique qui jongle sur tous les standards tels des équilibristes sur le fil de l’histoire du jazz. Ils font les beaux jours du Baiser Salé tous les mercredis soir depuis plus de dix ans, et comme ils sont aussi d’excellents compositeurs, ils ont eu envie d’écrire un répertoire pour un quintet de jazz, histoire de prolonger leur duo, basé sur l’interaction, et une forte télépathie musicale, vers une formule élargie dans l’esprit des grands quintets de hard-bop des années 1950-1960 (les Jazz Messengers, Cannonbal Adderley, Clifford Brown & Max Roach, Horace Silver…). Le résultat est saisissant, magique, et d’une grande fluidité, comme si la musique relevait de l’évidence, car ce formidable quintet ne nous propose pas un jazz poussiéreux ancré dans le passé, mais une musique actuelle, puissante, festive, et sensible, qui mixe avec bonheur le hard-bop et la musique caribéenne dans une folle énergie créative, où mélodies, harmonies, et rythmes font bon ménage dans le meilleur des mondes.

[EN] Martinican pianist Mario Canonge and Marseilles double bassist Michel Zenino form an atypical duo that juggles all the standards like balancing musicians in the history of jazz. They have been performing at Le Baiser Salé every Wednesday night for over ten years, and as they are also excellent composers, they wanted to write a repertoire for a jazz quintet, to extend their duo, based on interaction, and a strong musical telepathy, towards an expanded formula in the spirit of the great hard-bop quintets of the 1950-1960s (Jazz Messengers, Cannonbal Adderley, Clifford Brown & Max Roach, Horace Silver… The result is striking, magical, and fluid, as if the music was obvious, because this formidable quintet does not offer us a dusty jazz anchored in the past, but a music of today, powerful, festive, and sensitive, that happily mixes hard-bop and Caribbean music in a crazy creative energy, where melodies, harmonies, and rhythms mix well in the best of worlds.
