After serving for many years as a first class versatile jazz and classical bassist (Thomas Enhco, Jacky Terrasson, Baptiste Trotignon, Orchestre National de Lyon, Verbier Festival Orchestra, etc...), Jeremy Bruyere has finally decided to lead his own project hence he is about the record his debut album, which is precisely the reason why he is doing the crowdfunding campaign.
Lucky to have crossed path with so many different influences, this first opus will combine all these sonic and timbral words all together in a very subtle manner . Mostly originals, these compositions are definitely coming directly from his two years spent in New York, playing and living in this highly influential and creative jazz scene. Hence some will recognize is love artists like Avishai Cohen, Gerald Clayton, Aaron Parks, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Avishai Cohen, and the list can go on and on...
It is by the way in this vein that one of his key compositions "Unexpeceted part #1" has been written, which opens Laurent Coulondre Trio album called "OPUS II", released last year. As a matter of fact, Laurent happens to be Jeremy Quartet's pianist as well.
For this debut Album, he surrounded himself with 3 very talented musicians and friends, that also share his taste for this refreshing jazz and its numerous challenges. Laurent Coulondre on piano and keyboards (organ, rhodes,etc...), Maxime Berton on saxophones, flutes and bass clarinet; and Arthur Alard on drums and percussions. This Quartet Formula, intimate in its density and vice versa, highlights its four multi-instrumentalist's timbral and rythmical richness for an alchemical musical experience.
Part of this album repertoire have been experimented at Sunset Jazz Club during our first show as a whole in January 2015. This performance being filmed, we used this material to create 3 to 5 minutes video teasers that were published on facebook on a weekly basis and more recently on Youtube on a playlist simple called Jeremy Bruyere Quartet
The Recording of 10 -15 new original tunes will take place at Studio des Bruères, in Poitier in June 2015 !
The Album's release date will be in January if everything goes as planned.
An exclusive track will be shared in Avant Première with all the contributors of the campaign in addition to the rewards.
