With a brilliant mix of writing and improvisation, a relevant and generous music, rich compositions where each personality is highlighted while offering a group sound, such is Andy Emler ‘s musical composition. Years of friendships through multiple projects have resulted in a rare and exemplary complicity between these 4 virtuosos who offer us a most stimulating collective performance. Andy Emler wished he could work again with Marc Ducret more regularly.As a reminder : a record in quintet made with Marc in the early 80s... More recently Andy has invited Marc to join the MegaOctet, particularly in London and at the Europa Jazz Festival.In spite of their different musical paths both artists share close links. In addition, the Emler, Tchamitchian, Echampard trio (with their 13 years of existence and 3 CDs) is a formation that extends its influence and its rich singularity throughout Europe. The music, like a slowly ripening fruit, is marked by Andy’s formal requirement and respect for the three musicians who surround him.
