Info zu Inner Songs

Is it possible to mix John Coltrane, Stevie Wonder, Oxmo Puccino and Duke Ellington? With Inner Songs, Olivier Temime proves it and becomes the heir of a cosmopolitan Jazz, fed by the jolts of his time, by essence mixed and powerful.

Whether arranging and improvising on a speech by Rahsaan Roland Kirk, harmonizing the song of a blackbird or starting from a lullaby to the solemn expressiveness of a flugelhorn solo, Temime composes a very melodic, emotional music based on the interaction with the members of this new formation, a mixture of young and old.

We meet Stéphane Belmondo, a string quartet arranged by Vincent Artaud and Oxmo Puccino. Arnold Moueza, a long-time friend of the Volunteered Slaves, deploys his powerful percussion game; Emmanuel Bex, always on orbit, weaves new harmonies. At the piano, the luminous Etienne Deconfin, supported by the implacable groove of Samuel Hubert and the telluric drums of Antoine Paganotti, dialogue with a Temime with ever more expressive saxophones. Julien Lourau, a master in decompartmentalization, is the director.

With Inner Songs, Temime reveals these inner songs that sometimes sound like standards of the future.

Olivier Temime
At the age of fourteen he studied music with a private teacher, then with Philippe Renault at the conservatory of Marseille where he obtained the Gold Medal in the Jazz class. Laureate of the Jazz competition "Futur 90", sponsored by Dee Dee Bridgewater, he was also awarded as soloist in the Trampoline of the "Defense 97". Festival after festival his talent is making itself felt - be it in Marciac, Calvi, Antibes, Montreux, etc. As well as jam sessions and meetings with Johnny Griffin, Wynton Marsalis, Jon and Michele Hendricks, Steve Grossman, Daniel Humair, Emmanuel Bez, Laurent de Wilde, Les Belmondo, Jena Loup Longnon, Eric Le lann, and many others, where he has been considered one of the most vibrant improvisers of the European scene.

Most of the time this tenor performs in the 2000's surrounded by his "Volunteered Slaves" (with Roland Kirk's eye) in variable formations, without renouncing his appetite for jam sessions.

Although he does not deny his Coltrana heritage, his tenor imposes itself as an inheritance of hard bop saxophonists, which he prolongs and updates with an always singing and spirited imprint, drifts and paroxysms which must therefore free the saxophones from the rhythm and the blues.
