No need to have the same musical tastes to appreciate each other’s cuisine... The proof of this truism can be found in this collaboration between a revered queen of alternative country and a respected old sage of modern jazz: Lucinda Williams and Charles Lloyd, a one-day couple supported by a five-star cast of musicians in which we find guitarist Bill Frisell, pedal steel master Greg Leisz, bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland... Both Lloyd and Williams have previously lead a revolution in their respective fields. Here, the duo are celebrating a certain idea of America with an open-minded repertoire. A heterogeneous menu mixing jazz, blues, country and rock'n'roll, with Williams only singing on half of the ten tracks. Vanished Gardens offer up Jimi Hendrix (Angel) as well as Thelonious Monk (Monk's Mood) and Roberta Flack (Ballad of The Sad Young Men), though they also include some of their signature dishes (three by Charles Lloyd and four by Lucinda Williams). This is, above all, a refined and profound album; the work of two musicians who know how to digest well decades of music. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Cyrille Aimée isn’t the only French jazz singer to have conquered New York, but she is a genuinely talented interpreter capable of touching anyone who lends an ear to her music. The young woman has spent her entire life immersed in music, slipping away as a child to meet up with gipsies and sing. Regardless of where her sounds or influences come from, Aimée is simply capable of absorbing anything that can feed into her singing. Unbeatable on the history of New Orleans jazz, American pop music, gypsy rhythms and French classics, she wanders through sublime onomatopoeia in this live album recorded at New York Poisson Rouge in August 2017. Released on the Mack Avenue label, Aimée opens with the great Peggy Lee’s It’s a Good Day, accompanied by a guitar reminiscent of Django Reinhardt. Surrounded with guitarists Adrien Moignard and Michaël Valeanu, bassist Dylan Shamat and drummer Dani Danor, Cyrille Aimée effortlessly hypnotises her audience, who don’t refrain from applauding and showing their enthusiasm! She mixes jazz standards, turns to Sidney Bechet’s French balladSi tu vois ma mère, and even dares attempt a Michael Jackson medley with Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'. Nothing can resist her golden voice, slightly nasal, a tad childlike, but overflowing with emotions, capable of embarking on improvisations that could last until dawn. © Clara Bismuth/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
Seven years after Time Together, Michael Franks confirms he’s still his best imitator. At more than 73 years old, the Californian remains this cool singer, with a cool voice on cool tunes… Produced notably by Gil Goldstein and Chuck Loeb, The Music In My Head represents a new height of this barely dreamy smooth jazz on which Franks lets his velvet organ slide with delicateness… We once more tell ourselves that time seems to have stopped for him between 1976 and 1985, when his albums The Art of Tea Reprise, Sleeping Gypsy, Burchfield Nines, Tiger in the Rain, One Bad Habit, Objects of Desire, Passionfruit and Skin Dive were beautiful and sensual soundtracks, completely smooth, of an idealized California. This 2018 batch will probably not change the minds of either his fans or his detractors. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz
