The ever-surprising Jorge Rossy! World-famous as the drummer with which Brad Mehldau redefined the art of the trio, he was first a trumpet player before switching for a time to the piano... And yet it is as a vibraphonist that he has recorded this new album, an instrument which for him is the ideal combination of the percussive nature of the drums with the polyphony of a keyboard and a true melodic dimension. Based on solid friendships, his Vibes Quintet presents an all-star cast: the refined purity of the American saxophonist Mark Turner, the startlingly Monk-like phrasing of Catalan guitarist Jaume Llombart, and the superlative rhythm section of acoustic bassist Doug Weiss and legendary drummer Al Foster (the regular accompanist of Miles Davis, Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner, no less!), whose talents as a composer are also highlighted on the album.

Luminous, nuanced, and with subtle interplay, "Beyond Sunday" not only reveals the range of talents of one of the major musicians of our time, but is above all a major opus of modern jazz, for which the quality of the soloists is constantly sublimated by the magic of the improvising.

New album “Beyond Sunday” to be released on November 16th 2016 on the Paris-based label jazz&people, distributed by [PIAS].
