Jazzmine Bay Trio – Le Telegraphe – Bhamdoun
The Jazzmine Bey Trio presents a wide range of rarely played Bebop to modern jazz tunes arranged for this rather unusual formation without a piano or guitar. The absence of a harmonic instrument opens space and freedom for the saxophone. Amongst the compositions are original tunes by its former piano player Bruno Paoli as well as French Bass icon Henry Texier and some references to Seamus Blake and Theolonius Monk.
