Story of the recording :
The Jazz'' in Chopin project started in 1999 during a dinner organized by our friends Danielle and Henry, in connection with the Chopin year (150th death anniversary) with Polish official representatives. It was a charming evening (beautiful recipes by Henry !) but as a jazz pianist, I didnât see very well which contribution I could bring to such event ...
However, at one time, we talked about jazz in Poland (which is very active) and some jazzmen who didnât hesitate to transform Chopinâs works into jazz and in particular a trio who played only Chopin ! I have suddenly had a vision : a mixture of images, precise and at the same time fuzzy and during a few minutes I should not have paid much attention to the discussion in progress... It was like an idea, that I had always had but hidden deep in me, suddenly tried to appear. I always adored Chopin ! He even is my preferred composer !
I already played in concert an arrangement on his âprelude nÂ° 4â â¦ I recorded âstudy nÂ°1â by Scriabin (arranged it also) who was a great Chopinâs fan ! (at the point to fall asleep with Masterâs works under his pillow when he was small)... How I hadn''t thought earlier of continuing this step? At this moment, when I took again my spirits, Pascale, who had taken in my place the course of the discussion, precisely proposed to our hosts to listen to my version of the study nÂ°1. Just after, my Polish interlocutors highly encouraged me to work on Chopin !
A few months later I made my first "Jazz'' in Chopin" concert at the Polish Institute of Paris. After 3 years of hard work the result is this Cd : "Jazz'' in Chopin". I hope that you will be able to realize, as I could do it during my various harmonic analyses, at which point Chopin was not only a great composer but also a master improviser. What makes him one of the first Jazz pianists !...
French musicians who played after the big band did not have the easy spot, especially with the intimist character of their music witch requires a certain concentration and a rather particular environment. Serge FortÃ©, Peter Herbert and Steve Shehan appeared truly magicians knowing how to control the sound and the public. Their music, very thorough on the aesthetic side to the European artists, moved in a space where sound and silence played equality with very moderate colours. This music was in charge of an immense emotion and a very jazz feeling. The must was the interpretation of Chopin in Jazz, and there we could notice that there are not only the Polish musicians who can shine in this field!!!
Festival of Cracow, May 17, 2000, Robert BUCZEK
Serge FortÃ© plays in a climate of inspiration and respiration. Chopinâs soul is not interpreted, revisited, or not copied - it is sublimated with the exact and relative definition of the dictionary: "to distil the volatile elements".
