Flight retraces a life better than any CV. The life is James Francies'. Born in Houston and living in New York since 2013, this young piano virtuoso (acoustic and electric) is already playing alongside big names such as Pat Metheny, Chris Potter, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Stefon Harris, Eric Harland and Terrace Martin as well as hip-hop stars including Lauryn Hill, José James, Common, Nas and Chance the Rapper. Under the tutelage of Questlove, the drummer from The Roots, Francies made his first album for Blue Note with a range of influences. And like his stablemate Robert Glasper, he touches up his jazz with soul pop, an almost vintage jazz fusion and hip hop beats… Produced by Derrick Hodge, Flight revolves above all around rhythms and ambiances. The changes are smooth and natural with the progressions always following a solid sense of narrative. James Francies shares the stage with various guest performers including saxophonist Chris Potter, guitarist Mike Moreno, vibraphone player Joel Ross, bassist Burniss Travis II, drummers Jeremy Dutton and Mike Mitchell and vocalists such as YEBBA, Chris Turner and Kate Kelsey-Sugg. © Max Dembo/Qobuz
