On Thursday, April 16, 2020 - 8 pm, guitarist Christine Tassan will launch her new album at Sala Rossa. Sala Rossa.
Voyage intérieur brings together ten instrumental compositions, the fruit of an introspective musical research. It puts forward a new facet of the musician’s personality, with jazz, electric, bebop sounds, carried by a quintet of outstanding musicians. Each piece opens a page of a musical diary, written over time and artistic encounters. We discover a hybrid jazz with strong melodies, varied rhythms ranging from bolero to swing via bossa and funk, where the European influences of the musician mingle with those of American swing.
Christine is here on electric guitar, surrounded by musicians chosen for their musicality and their talent to navigate this hybrid universe: saxophonist and clarinetist Aurélien Tomasi whose sound blends perfectly the guitar; the pianist Yannick Anctil whose aerial playing breathes a wind of freshness and a great sensitivity to each piece; the bassist Hugo Blouin whose ardour ensures an energetic rhythmic that completes the fine playing of drummer Maude Bastien.
