New album “Magic Malik Jazz Association” – released on 24/05/2019
New album for Magic Malik whose lyrical flights have ranked him among the virtuoso artists of the French jazz scene.
13 albums, leader or musicians of the groups Magic Malik Orchestra, Groove Gang or Jazz Association Quintet who offers us this new album.
Composer, arranger, musicians he also ventured beyond the borders of jazz with collaborations with artists such as -M-, Camille, Oumou Sangare, Hocus Pocus, Pierrick Pedron, Air …
Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk … For the first time in a busy and eclectic career that has taken him from M-Base to Afrobeat, the unclassifiable flutist is now concentrating on the modern jazz repertoire and following in the footsteps of the giants he admires. At the head of a Jazz Association that includes the brilliant trumpet player Olivier Laisney (Slugged, Oxyd, Gil Evans Paris Workshop…) and the dynamo pianist Maxime Sanchez (a recent finalist of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition), Magic Malik reworks in his own style the music that has long inspired him, without nostalgia or duplication, and with the memory of Eric Dolphy and Booker Little in the back of his mind.
