Laurent Coq | Kinship

With Jazz&People label (who released the Lafayette Suite), we are launching a crowdfunding campaign to finance the post-production of my new trio album Kinship. It was recorded last fall with two stellar New York musicians who have never played together before : young acoustic bass player originally from Los Angeles Joshua Crumbly, and the son of famous violin player John Blake Jr., Tom Harrell and Kenny Barron regular drummer, Johnathan Blake.

We have less than a month to collect enough money to pay for the cover and booklet design, manufacturing the album, and a publicist who will help us promote this music in September when it will be released. All you need to know about this new adventure is on the KissKissBankBank page. If you like what you see and hear, don't hesitate to share it on facebook and with your friends as well, for we need your help ! THANK YOU.

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.
