Laurent Coq | Kinship

With my label Jazz&People who released the Suite Lafayette, and after a successful crowdfunding campaign, tha album came out on September 15.

- iTunes
- Amazon
- Fnac
- Bandcamp

Recorded in the fall of 2016 in New York, Kinship brings together two stellar musicians of the New York scene who had never played before : The young bassist from Los Angeles, Joshua Crumbly, and from Philadelphia, the son of legendary violin player John Blake, drummer Johnathan Blake.

The album gathers eleven compositions, each one a tribute to a living musician that I feel very close to (Kinship) and to whom I owe a lot. You will find out who they are in the liner notes I wrote for the booklet.

Ralph Lavital | Carnaval

Guitarist and composer Ralph Lavital releases his first album as a leader on label Jazz Family. Recorded at Studio de Meudon on March 2016 and mixed in New York with Dave Darlington in June, it presents an original repertoire elaboreted over the past years. The team that I am proud to be part of includes singer Nicolas Pélage (already featured on Dialogue with Ralph), acoustic bass player Zacharie Abraham and drummer Thilo Bertholo. Two guests complete the band on a few tracks : Laurent Laslingué on steel pan and Ricardo Izquierdo on tenor saxophone.

I have been very fortunate to serve as the musical director thoughout this creative process and I am looking forward to making more music with this incredibly gifted young musician who happens to be a very good friend. Order it on digital form on all the usual platerfoms (Qobuz for example) or directly at the label Jazz Family for its digital version.
