Didier Verna @-quartet
French Jazz guitarist, singer, and composer Didier Verna releases ¡En Seguida!, the 3rd album from his "@-quartet" band, with Didier Verna (composition, guitars, sitar, synth-guitar, vocals), Laurent Epstein (piano), Yoni Zelnik (double bass), David Georgelet (drums), and two special guests on several tunes: Solange Vergara (vocals) et Guillaume Kervel (steel drum).
While still primarily focused on contemporary Jazz, this third opus from the @-quartet widens its influences, yet again, by incorporating hispano-indo-carribean sounds (so to speak), a path unexplored until now. The repertoire becomes more singing, the orchestration richer, notably thanks to the presence of two special guests (vocals and steel drum) on four of the thirteen new compositions. When a steel drum weds an electric sitar in mazurka-land, one can expect anything, even flamenco!
