five albums as the leader of a regular band - a quintet or a quartet -
had the time come for Simon Goubert to use other facets of his talent.
his passion for the piano, that he began learning when he was a child
and keeps playing regularly - he'd been heard on this instrument with
Christian Vander in Offering and Les Voix de Magma for about ten years.
his interest for studio works. Since he had played in about fifty recordings
as a musician but also as a director, he wanted to produce an album
worked out for the studio, with the help of tools and technology available
music of "et après" is made up of pieces very different
from one another, you can listen as well to a work on resonances - in
particular with vocal harmonics - than to orchestral and written pieces,
far from these five first pure jazz albums, recorded in the spirit of
a live performance.
all these reasons, the musicians that were invited to play on this new
album are not only members of the band in which Simon Goubert performs,
he has worked along with them for many years and he has played with
them in different circumstances, so he was very confident when he called
upon their talent to take part to one or several pieces on this album.
après", which is a really original record, stands out from
the present jazz production; an album which offers new and different
things, from which emerge a palpable maturity and plenitude when you
listen to it.
