INTAKT RECORDS: London Concerts



INTAKT RECORDS IN LONDON takes place from 16 to 27 April 2017 at venerable jazz venue The Vortex. The festival presents 26 performances from iconic artists and young, emerging musicians. It will be launched with a celebration of the 70th birthday of bassist and improv pioneer Barry Guy.

“Small in budget, but immense in quality,” says music magazine All About Jazz New York about the record label Intakt. “The pre-dominance and growth of independent labels continues.” Intakt has made a special effort to document the development of many distinguished artists and more than 275 recordings have been released to date. The label’s extraordinary critical acclaim is matched by the enthusiasm of the subscribers to the Intakt Records series.

Detailed information about the festival: www.intaktrec.ch/london


BARRY GUY – 70th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

For the opening night of the Intakt Festival at the Vortex we are delighted to be celebrating the 70th birthday of one of the genuine pioneers in European music, a completely individual and highly influential figure, Barry Guy.

In the 1970’s Guy was active both in the fields of classical music – at the highest level, for example with John Eliot Gardiner’s Monteverdi Orchestra, and with Christopher Hogwood’s Academy of Ancient Music – and also of free improvisation. He is founder of the London Jazz Composers Orchestra, the Barry Guy New Orchestra and most recently the Blue Shroud Band.

He is one of the most influential composers in current jazz and in new music, In small ensembles with Evan Parker, Maya Homburger, Howard Riley, Marilyn Crispell, Agustí Fernández, as well as with younger musicians such as Lucas Niggli and Jürg Wickihalder, his mastery of improvisation marks him out as one of the very great bassists of Europe.

Barry Guy’s series of recordings for the Intakt label, ever since the 1980s, have left a significant mark. His music and his total commitment are a constant inspiration.

Yves Brouqui Trio - How Little We Know (GAYA MUSIC 2017)



From the first listen one is caught by this round sound, subtle, proper to the great jazz guitarists…

Magnificent subtleties, nuances in touch, excellent musicality is served by a return to the swing and the melody that surpasses the flawless virtuosity of the guitar leader. From album to album, here the 5th as leader, Yves Brouqui is in the line of Jim Hall, Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell…

His 10 years stay in New York City, particularly at the Small’s where he met the top of the East Coast jazz scene, allowed him to assert his play and style. An album that all the lovers of the 6 strings must acquire and keep preciously on the “Best of” shelf. As for the rhythm that accompanies it … Extremely solid! ~ Christian Grimauld

Hermon Mehari - Bleu (2017)


Hermon Mehari’s anticipated debut album as a leader, “Bleu”, marks a new era in his career. The music covers both the ground of his contemporaries and his own original music in such a way to illustrate his current musical path. “Bleu” includes ECM recording artist Aaron Parks on piano, Blue Note recording artist Logan Richardson on alto saxophone, Peter Schlamb on vibraphone, Ryan J. Lee on drums and Rick Rosato on bass. Mehari was the recent winner of the 2015 Carmine Caruso International Trumpet Competition and a semifinalist in the 2014 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition. In 2014 he released the CD "Our Journey" with Diverse, his second with the group. Mehari maintains a touring schedule around the world with his own group and as a sideman. He was the headliner of the 2014 Jazz en Tête Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France and was featured on the world-renowned saxophonist Bobby Watson's 2013 release, "Check Cashing Day".

Mehari was also the winner of the 2008 National Trumpet Competition and placed 2nd in the International Trumpet Guild competition in Sydney, Australia. As a founding member of Diverse, whose eponymous debut album on Seattle-based Origin Records reached the Top 40 on the Jazzweek Radio Charts, he has performed professionally with noted saxophonists Jaleel Shaw, Logan Richardson, Bobby Watson, and Ben Van Gelder. He has also performed with Joe Sanders, Hubert Laws, Randy Brecker, Tony Tixier, Dave Pietro, Clay Jenkins and many other great musicians. The band Diverse notably shared a double bill with Roy Haynes' Birds of a Feather band as headliners of the 2008 Gene Harris Jazz Festival.

Hermon Mehari received his BM in Jazz Performance from the University of Missouri - Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance in 2010. In addition to performing, he dedicates himself to being a serious educator and has participated in clinics and panels around the world.

Jasper Somsen Trio - A New Episode in Life Pt. I (CHALLENGE RECORDS 2017)

It’s no coincidence Jasper Somsen’s 3rd (and later this year 4th) Challenge Records album features an international piano trio line up. Recent years performing and/or recording in trio with a.o. Enrico Pieranunzi, Joey Calderazzo, John Beasley, Jeff Ballard, Justin Faulkner and André Ceccarelli, he is much sought after by (especially) pianists. The former New York, now Montreal-based French master pianist and composer Jean-Michel Pilc and one of Jasper's all-time favorite French drummers André Ceccarelli joined him for this diptych.


At their first encounter ever, this trio with Jean-Michel Pilc - piano and André Ceccarelli - drums recorded A New Episode in Life Part I & A New Episode in Life Part II  in just two days!

The music is an intriguing and exciting exploration in the hearts and minds of these three wonderful musicians.

A New Episode in Life Part II will be released in autumn 2017

Laurent Marode Nonet - This Way Please (2017)


Sous influence des musiques qui l’on fait voyager, le pianiste ravit avec ce nouveau disque les amoureux du swing.

Avec son nouvel album This Way Please, ancré dans la tradition du jazz, Laurent Marode livre une fresque musicale aux arrangements raffinés, inspirée des musiques de films et des mélodies qui l’on fait voyager. Cette ode à un jazz populaire alterne compositions et reprises jouées par un nonet puissant et réjouissant.

« This Way Please ramène à la vie un jazz universalisant, exigeant et offre un vaste terrain de jeu dédié à l’hommage et à la création ».
Pour se faire, Laurent Marode s’est entouré de musiciens de haut vol qui donnent au swing ses lettres de noblesse : Fabien Mary à la trompette, Luigi Grasso au saxophone alto, David Sauzay au saxophone ténor, Frank Basile au saxophone baryton, Jerry Edwards au trombone, Laurent Marode au piano, Nicholas Thomas au vibraphone, Fabien Marcoz à la contrebasse et Mourad Benhammou à la batterie.

Particulièrement touché par le Hard Bop et la période des années 40 à 60, Laurent Marode a fondé un sextet avec lequel il enregistrait son premier disque en 2005, I mean. Sa passion pour le cinéma le mène à diriger des comédies musicales et des projets théâtre et musique (Bonheur en 2003, Novecento en 2005, Pygmalion, BB Initials en 2013 etc.). Il se produit aussi régulièrement en ciné-concerts.


This Way Please est un projet qui réunit des musiciens exceptionnels!

FABIEN MARY . DAVID SAUZAY . FRANK BASILE . LUIGI GRASSO . JERRY EDWARDS
NIHOLAS THOMAS . LAURENT MARODE . FABIEN MARCOZ . MOURAD BENHAMMOU
Cette configuration permet à Laurent Marode d’utiliser des techniques d’arrangement a priori éloignées l’une de l’autre : le Big Band mais également celles des grands quintets et sextets de l’histoire du jazz, ainsi que des techniques ayant trait à la musique classique.

Passionné de musiques de films et de belles mélodies, les compositions et morceaux choisis réveillent et réhabilitent un jazz oublié : populaire, onirique et fédérateur, loin des carcans élitistes des compositions complexes destinées aux oreilles averties ou du jazz déambulatoire de fanfare. Dans cet espace intermédiaire de création, This Way Please ramène à la vie un jazz universalisant, exigeant et offre un vaste terrain de jeu dédié à l’hommage et à la création.

This Way Please… est une ode à ce que le jazz a de plus précieux et singulier,  une évidence  intemporelle et voyageuse. Du Swing ! Du Bounce !

Miguel Ângelo Quarteto apresenta o seu segundo álbum "A VIDA DE X", constituído por dez composições inspiradas em personagens fictícias ou em histórias imaginárias ou reais a que o quarteto deu vida e espera que cada ouvinte crie a sua própria visão e, desta forma, ganhe uma nova vida. 

A VIDA DE X não é uma simples vida, é um emaranhado delas!...

«This is an album that beguiles gradually rather than being an instant infatuation. It is like the friend you feel comfortable with, who is unobtrusive yet steadfast, and whose worth is proven over time. Those are the people to keep close, and this is an album to value—great stuff.» @ AllAboutJazz by Phil Barnes

«...Miguel Ângelo assina dez temas com personalidade bem definida... o contrabaixista segue as linhas que já tinha exposto no disco de estreia, Branco - uma música franca, directa e intensa.» @ Publico.pt by Nuno Catarino

A VIDA DE X foi eleito pelo crítico Phil Barnes e pela revista Jazz.pt como um dos melhores discos de Jazz de 2016.
