Following Waxx Up (2017), a wonderfully groovy album featuring Yaël Naïm, Hugh Coltman, Charles X, Mathieu Boogaerts, Ibrahim Maalouf and Michelle Willis, Eric Legnini has left vocals to one side to concentrate on the guitar. With the aptly-named Six Strings Under, the Belgian pianist celebrates the six-string in all its forms; be it jazz, gypsy, rock or afrobeat, all genres which have accompanied him throughout his life. Returning to acoustics this time around, he has surrounded himself with his friend and double bass player Thomas Bramerie and two high profile guitarists: Hugo Lippi and Rocky Gresset. As always with Legnini, there’s nothing monolithic about this album and we slalom between the 30s (Stomping at the Savoy), Fela-style afrobeat (Boda Boda), rock à la Radiohead (Daydreamin) or Jobim-esque bossa-nova (La Mangueira). He even revisits Bowie’s hit Space Oddity in a splendid stripped-down cover. “That was the challenge: I wanted a slow and pared-back version. But I also wanted to stick as closely as possible to the melody and its original performance”. The piano-bass-guitar format allows Eric Legnini to work with space like never before (he comments that “the interplay is very different because usually it's often the drums that take over in a band”) and also to further expand his musical colour palette. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.
