Prepare yourself for the most important debut jazz recording since Esperanza Spaulding broke through a few years ago. Grégoire Maret is not only a musician's musician but he is a charismatic virtuoso whose musical concepts are at once highly melodic, soulful, swinging, and elegantly exploratory.
On his debut album Grégoire proves himself a master interpreter of works by Chick Corea, Stevie Wonder, Pat Metheny, and also an impressionistic composer of great sophistication in his own right. The selections are extended, diverse, richly textured and always engaging. Supported by an impressive cast including vocalists Cassandra Wilson and bassist Marcus Miller.
