Sings finds the great Beninese vocalist Angélique Kidjo fronting the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, conducted by Gast Waltzing. This is a studio offering that reflects the highlights of a series of now legendary 2011 concerts between them. Recorded at the Philharmonie Luxembourg, in New York, and in France, the program is a lively and unusual retrospective from Kidjo's career. Along with the orchestra, Kidjo is joined by her own band and guest musicians including guitarist Lionel Loueke, bassist Christian McBride, and backing vocalists. Arranged by Waltzing and guitarist David Laborier, the material comprises thorough revisionings of songs central to Kidjo's catalog, including dramatic presentations of "Malaika," "Loloye," "Kelele," the traditional "Otishe," "Nanae," and her gorgeous "Naima" (not to be confused with John Coltrane's tune of the same title). While the music is certainly far "busier" and more florid than the work on her earlier records, this presentation is thoroughly lovely and her big contralto gets right on top of the orchestra, while the rhythms sound as organic as ever. Two interesting covers on the set include a deeply soulful reading of Carlos Santana's "Samba Pa Ti," with a great flügelhorn solo by Waltzing, and Sidney Bechet and Ferdinand Bonifay's "Petite Fleur" arranged in a manner that pays homage to Kidjo's idol, Édith Piaf. Perhaps the greatest asset of this particular recording is how it reaffirms what we already knew: that Kidjo can deliver any song in any setting and remain iconic.

La nouvelle scène jazz anglaise en 10 albums

Hard bop ou hip-hop, free ou groovy, électro ou calypso, expérimentale ou caribéenne, la scène jazz britannique contemporaine regorge d’aventuriers aux oreilles bien ouvertes. Des musiciens connaissant leurs classiques qu’ils embarquent sur tous les types de terrains possibles et dont voici 10 albums symbolisant l’éclectisme salvateur.

Blues touareg, l’oasis du rock

Depuis la sortie en 2002 du premier album officiel du groupe touareg Tinariwen, “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, leur musique électrique dominée par les guitares est devenue une catégorie de rock, reconnue et respectée de Bamako à Los Angeles. Ce succès international a permis à de nombreux musiciens originaires du Sahara de se faire connaître. Ces poètes électriques des dunes de sable et des étendues rocailleuses ne cessent d’attirer les rockers occidentaux en quête d’authenticité rebelle.

Brigitte Bardot, des chansons au soleil

Entre le doux farniente de “La Madrague” et la liberté insolente de “Harley Davidson”, Brigitte Bardot incarne une chanson pop française à plusieurs facettes, comme elle. Qobuz dresse le panorama de la carrière de la Brigitte Bardot chanteuse.
