Album "Poèmes Jazz" des Lueurs de Lily !
Welcome aboard the production of the Les Lueurs de Lily's album Poèmes Jazz
Together, let's complete this challenge of 60 days !
Les Lueurs de Lily is the name of my singer-songwriter project, with my jazz musicians quartet.
I invite you to support our album, born from the union of my influences in jazz and bossa nova music, with French song. Twelve songs, all original compositions, with guests as Claude Lemesle, writer for the famous French singer Joe Dassin.
For the past year, we have been playing our songs in Paris, in famous jazz and French song halls like the Sunset Sunside or the Forum Léo Ferré.
Now we are ready to get in studio and record them.
All we need is your help to get to the production stage !
THE ALBUM « POÈMES JAZZ »
This album is the result of an intense year of work, creation and concerts.
It's a story about wandering in the streets of a city, on a summer day, through twelve jazz and bossa songs in French.
Each song is like a tale, inviting you to stop and look at small moments of grace, lost in the mayhem : Les Toits de Paris (Rooftops of Paris) looking dow on men from their higher spot ; Orange the city, named after a color ; the dreaming of the street sweeper in Time Square…
Two songs are a tribute to jazz and bossa standards : Testament d’un éphémère (Will of a Mayfly), song of the sunset written on the bossa nova standard Dindi from Antonio Jobim, and Lotus en Fleur (Lotus Blossom), d’après une composition de Billy Strayhorn, bras droit de Duke Ellington.
French also gets its declaration of love with Me Voici (Here I Am), composed after a poem from Victor Hugo, and Tu, toi, nous, celebrating that delicious moment when one hesitates before changing from the "vous" to the "tu" when addressing the person they love.
WHO ARE WE ?
Behinf Les Lueurs de Lily, there is Lily.
I'm 24 years-old, and I lead my singer-songwriter project in Paris, with a first French song album "Bulle" I released in 2014.
I studied with the american jazz singer Sara Lazarus and am part of the writer's atelier of the French author Claude Lemesle. I marry both worlds in my songs : French lyrics on jazz and bossa nova music.
« Lily has what I call grace. She composes real melodies, which is rare, and her lyrics are sensitive, subtle, at times impertinent, always well written. She's a princess of charm in the sometimes staggering castle of French song. Lend her your ear for one moment, and she'll give you news from your heart for a long time. »
— Claude Lemesle
Les Lueurs de Lily are also four talented jazz musicians from the prestigious school of Didier Lockwood and the American School of Music : pianist Jibril Caratini, guitarist Hugo Corbin, double bassist François Bernat and drummer Adrien Cao.
They are the ones who give each song its colors and make them stir during concerts !
On the occasion of the album, several guests join us : the author Claude Lemesle, trumpettist Robin Mansanti... and a few surprises ;)
Finally, the project receives the precious support from photographers, directors and graphic designers : Nicolas Fortin, Jérémie Normand and Solène Pichereau… and most important, support from the public !
