Emile Parisien 4tet (FR) – 21. April 2012

Jazzahead 2012

Improvisation lies at the heart of this quartet’s play. Having played together since 2004, Emile Parisien, Julien Touery, Sylvain Darrifourcq and Ivan Gelugne have developed a mutual understanding of both each other and their music. Inspired by important composers of the 20th century, such as Coltrane or Wayne Shorter, the band’s music denotes a certain expressionist quality. Parisien and his fellow band members go above and beyond on improvisation with fascinating virtuosity.

Line-up: Emile Parisien (sax), Julien Darrifourcq (dr), Julien Touery (p), Ivan Gelugne (b)
