Description

Continuing his search for a contemporary spiritual jazz equally influenced by the 70s classics of the genre and by the 21st century nu-jazz club scene, Heavenly Sweetness has produced the music of this new French-US band. Brainchild of Stphane Ronget, trumpet player/singer/composer who contributed to the success of MJA (Metropolitan Jazz Affair), this new 12 offers three different moods. One leg dancer is an uptempo hard boppish tune with vocals and a solid smaba/jazz groove laid down by drummer extraordinaire John Betsch. Spiritual is a splendid moody cover of a rarely covered John Coltrane classic with nice Rhodes playing by Benjamin Dvignes (Patchwork / MJA keyboardist). Almost is a downtempo funky ballad highlighting the bass sounds of nyuyorican bassist Peter Giron. This is the First Step of this new band which has many other grooves in store to be released on 2007 on Heavenly Sweetness.
