About

A great drummer for a great label. 77 years ago, Tony Allen signed with Blue Note for his first record. But if the boundaries of the blues brand established in 1939 by Alfred Lion and Max Margulis are very clear, Allen, for his part has established a most unique playing style, taking on jazz and rhythm'n'blues and African music. The drummer who invented afrobeat has his own distinctive touch, a very personal style (the articulation/disarticulation of elements in his drum kit, his focus on the hi-hat and the ride cymbal allowing him to hit out at the other drums), which comes from his African and Nigerian sources, as well as rhythmic boppers like Kenny Clarke, Max Roach and Art Blakey. They, too, could each have signed his statement: "When I play, it's like an orchestra in itself; I try to make my playing orchestral". The twelfth work in his discography, The Source takes us, as the name suggests, to the source of Tony Allen's musical art, which is to say the Nigeria of the second half of the 20th Century, to set out on an internal journey, both musical and spiritual, between Africa and America. He calls on Yann Jankielewicz, to co-write and handle the arrangements, with whom he has been working since 2009's Secret Agent. The eleven titles are also the fruit of a work that started when the two men started listening to and swapping certain records. Records by Lester Bowie, Charles Mingus, Art Blakey or Gil Evans serve as a compass... Around Tony have gathered artists like trombonist Daniel Zimmermann, saxophonist Rémi Sciuto, double-bassist Mathias Allamane or keyboard player Vincent Taurelle and Cameroonian guitarist Indy Dibongue. As the cherry on the cake, Damon Albarn from Blur is also on the keyboards on Cool Cats... All these great artists take their cues from the master as he obsessively weaves his tapestry of jazz and afrobeat This is a no-man's-land like no other. Here, and no-where else, Tony Allen deploys tasty melodies and daring improvisations which are all his own. © MD/Qobuz
