Daniel Humair. Legendary name in the history of jazz and yet so present. A book 74 years we certainly one of its most beautiful summits, meetings of which he has the secret and command respect, passion, power and love for music. Time has taken its full potential in this new Quartet, one of the meeting, sharing, listening to one another and especially the unparalleled pleasure to convey a simple joy but so obvious.
Even if you didn’t know that Humair is one of France’s top percussionists, you might guess that this was a Gallic offering by the presence of an accordion in his quartet, in place of the customary piano. Not that this is by any means an easy-listening cafe experience. In fact, some if it is so abstract that it’s quite hard going, but the way these players develop whole musical narratives out of the simplest initial ideas can be mesmerising, if you give it a chance. The veteran Humair has certainly found kindred spirits in musicians half his age, especially the remarkable accordionist, Vincent Peirani.
