Description

This is the first album by Gilles Naturel's "Contrapuntic Jazz Band". This fine and original sounding recording attests to the bassists talent as an arranger and reflects his interest in 16th century counterpoint with a flavour of "West Coast" Jazz. Liner note writer Benny Golson hails Naturel's musicianship and exceptional bass playing in a unique sextet context, which includes drummer Nasheet Waits. Of the album's twelve tracks, eight are original compositions by Naturel and are contrasted by distinctive takes on Duke Ellington's "Mount Harissa" and, appropriately, Charlie Parker's fugal "Ah Leu Cha". This captivating CD succeeds by drawing on very different Classical and Jazz traditions and is aided by the bassist's vast playing and recording experience with the likes of Joe Lovano, Lee Konitz, Johnny Griffin, Art Farmer and many others. Personnel: Gilles Naturel (double bass), Fabien Mary (trumpet), Guillaume Naturel (tenor saxophone), Jerry Edwards (trombone), Bastien Stil (tuba), Nasheet Waits (drums)
