Laurent Salzard "Time Keeper" - 1er album

<p><strong>Take part in the release of “Time Keeper”, the debut album from Laurent Salzard!</strong></p><p> </p><p><img alt="8-1507205494" src=""></p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong><em>Time Keeper, the one who keeps the tempo</em></strong></p><p>After years spent working and “keeping the tempo” for performers from all over the world - whilst navigating through varied musical styles with the artists he met along the way - it was time for Laurent to launch his own project and unveil his personal world, his musical identity.</p><p> </p><p><strong><em>Time Keeper, the one who holds back time</em></strong></p><p>An album is some sort of guardian of time, a musical picture of a specific moment in the life of an artist. The recorded tracks are snapshots reflecting an inspiration, an emotion. They can therefore, in a way, hold back time.</p><p>Laurent recorded his first album late this year. 10 compositions, 10 pictures starting a new film, like a new adventure, in order to show the creative aspect to his work, give life to his own compositions and launch himself into a voyage to search for his musical identity.</p><p> </p><p><strong>                  </strong><u><strong>To be released in January 2018 on the Dreamophone label</strong></u></p><p><strong>                                                        </strong><img alt="Capture_d__cran_2017-10-10___10.03.22-1507622755" src=""></p><p><strong>                       </strong></p><p><img alt="5__plus_de_light_-1507125284" src=""></p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong><em>A musical voyage</em></strong></p><p>The music from this album will transport you through quiet, poetic and purely acoustic rivers, through seas troubled by electric storms, through warmer waters, to enter the port of a big, urban and resolutely modern city.</p><p>Jazz, groove, touches of rock, electro and afro; all linked by lyricism and sensitivity. A certain delicacy, standing alongside wilder moments.</p><p> </p><p><strong><em>An experienced crew</em></strong></p><p>In order to make a success of this project, Laurent brought together a high-flying cast of musicians showing an extraordinary talent and an unfailing musicality:</p><p> </p><p><strong><em>Anthony Jambon: guitar</em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Martin Vangermée: drums</em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Fred Dupont: piano, keyboards</em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Christophe Panzani: saxophone</em></strong></p><p><img alt="Capture_d__cran_2017-10-04___17.16.32-1507131060" src=""></p><p> </p><p>At the helm, the ultra-talented engineer, <strong>Jean-Paul Gonnod.</strong></p><p><img alt="Img_7320_-_copie_2-1507197737" src="">  </p><p> </p><p>All skillfully mastered in New York by <strong>Alan Silvermann</strong>.</p><p> </p><p><strong><em>Credits</em></strong></p><p><em>Recorded at Besco Studio by</em> Jean-Paul Gonnod, <em>assisted by </em>Loïc Colin</p><p><em>Mastered by </em>Alan Silverman and Eleni Maltas at Arf!
