Premier Album du Galaad Moutoz Swing Orchestra !

<p> <strong>The Galaad Moutoz Swing Orchestra ?</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> The Galaad Moutoz Swing Orchestra is an 8-piece french orchestra, dedicated to swing music. It follows the way of the great american bands that played in the <strong>dancings of Harlem in the 30's</strong>.</p> <p> After playing in 2016 for jazz festivals and swing dancers (Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, Blues, etc), they now record their <strong>first album, featuring original compositions.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Their music is characterized by precise arrangements, served with style &amp; panache by a young and talented team of swing-lovers.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> </p><p> <strong> New music video : Swing is the Thing ! </strong> </p> <iframe width="420" height="315" src=""> </iframe> <p>  </p> <img alt="Photo_promo_5_hd-1483985566" src=""> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Origin of the project</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> While studying classical piano, composition and jazz,  Galaad Moutoz specializes himself in classic jazz from the 30's &amp; 40's, with an in-depth study of stride piano (Fats Waller, Earl Hines) and boogie-woogie (Pete Johnson).</p> <p>  </p> <p> In January 2016, after a few intense years playing jazz &amp; rythm n' blues in France and in Europe, the young pianist &amp; composer decides to create his own orchestra.</p> <p>  </p> <p> His repertoire is immediately influenced by the fresh and daring example of the Chick Webb Orchestra, particularly in his work with the young Ella Fitzgerald, between 1934 and 1939.</p> <p> Later on, he begins to add more and more original arrangements, and even original compositions, which now form the major part of their repertoire.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Together, they achieve to pay a vibrant homage to this swing culture that stands as a real part of our historical and cultural heritage. They are convinced that this type of active entertaining is more essential and relevant than ever, as a vector for dialogue and social linkage, in a single motion shared by the dancers, the audience and the musicians.</p> <p> <a href="" target="_blank">Here is a documentary by ArteTV in which the orchestra talks about the link between swing dance &amp; music :</a></p> <p> <img alt="Video_arte-1483975917" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Team</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Those beautiful songs are interpreted by the delightful <strong>Katrin-Merili POOM</strong>, an estonian diva with a bright &amp; powerful voice, a perfect technique, and a stunning stage presence.</p> <p> As well as writing and directing, <strong>Galaad MOUTOZ</strong> leads his orchestra from behind his piano, with virtuosity, a great sense of musical invention and an electric showmanship.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Galaad_kmp-1483975100" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> The horn section is composed of <strong>Simon PELÉ</strong> on the trumpet, <strong>Thomas CROGUENNOC </strong>on the alto saxophone, <strong>Benoît CARNET</strong> on the tenor saxophone and <strong>Simon LA TOUCHE</strong> on the tombone.</p> <p> Together, as thick as thieves, they deliver here a powerful old-fashioned swing, and there a velvet cushion for piano and voice to coil up in. Individually, they shine with colorful and creative solos, to make your ears &amp; feet go nuts.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Soufflants-1483975131" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Last but not least, double bassist <strong>Philippe DARDELLE</strong> and drummer <strong>Paul MORVAN</strong> guarantee to the orchestra its constant &amp; assured swing, as well as great dynamics, building up contrast &amp; emotion.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Paul_phillipe-1483975151" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> The album is recorded, mixed &amp; mastered by Julien Fournier at the <a href="" target="_blank">Altsonik</a> studio.</p> <p> <img alt="Altsonik-card-horizontal_540-1484048358" src=""></p> <p> This project is produced by Source de Bruits.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>
