Jef Neve launches his brand new album
‘In a world where all information is very quickly obtainable, I have a need for mystery: the power of a quest for truth, the childlike pleasure of accepting that I don’t understand it, that I am ignorant. For the instrumentation, I was inspired by the massive sound of three tenor saxes (that can sound both aggressive and soothing, as freely improvising as obligatorily classic). I complete them with trumpet and bass trombone, two extremes in the tessiture of the brass section. The sound of piano and contrabass are familiar to me from the start, and form the structure on which I have built the compositions. I invite you to let yourself be swept away into this fantasy world where surprises are never far removed.’ (Jef Neve on his new album)
