Exciting collaborative jazz Stéphane Spira & Giovanni Mirabassi – Improkofiev

Exciting collaborative jazz Stéphane Spira & Giovanni Mirabassi – IMPROKOFIEV:  It’s been a couple of years since I reviewed “New Playground” from soprano saxophonist Stéphane Spira, but his jazz is totally timeless, and you’ll fall in love with this new and exciting collaborative jazz album (to be released on May 22nd, 2020) right away… here’s a nice little trailer for the new release…

…be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Stéphane’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find many more well-done videos to enjoy.

The sample links won’t go live for another couple of days yet, but if you’re looking for one of the most laid-back (yet exciting) jazz tunes you’ve ever heard, you’ll certainly enjoy “Lawns“… I’d most strongly recommend that you use headphones, at least for your first sitting, so you can absorb every little nuance the players (pianist Giovanni Mirabassi and bassist Steve Wood, with drummer Donald Kontomanou) create for you!

Jazz DJ’s the world over are going to be spinning the lighthearted and airy sounds on the opener, “Ocean Dance“, frequently, I’ve no doubt… one of the most notable things about this tune is the use of the “spaces” between notes… great changes and high energy will make it a favorite for all.

There was no doubt in my mind what my choice for personal favorite of the seven (long) songs offered up was going to be… the title track, “Improkofiev“, gives you the spirit of jazz in all it’s glory and wonderment!

I give Stéphane and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this wonderful album.  To get more information, visit the website.                       Rotcod Zzaj
