The Great Escape - Music & More

Jean-Michel Proust is a household name in French jazz, not only because he was the voice of jazz on national radio (France Inter) and on the station TSF Jazz, but because he has also been a bandleader, producer, artistic director... and an accomplished saxophonist. This album is the first of two chapters that pay a delicate tribute to the spirit that moved Barney Wilen, one of the most sensitive tenors, whose versions of jazz classics took melody to the stars. This volume revisits standards by Miles Davis, Duke Jordan, Henri Mancini, Tom Jobim and John Lewis, with the saxophone, accompanied by a sparkling rhythm section, continuing the search for that famous "blue note" in an incredibly rich palette of emotions.
