The Key
Release Date: 05/09/2014
Catalogue No.: ACT9572
Record Label: ACT Music
Format: CD

Debut album from the Mauritian pianist now resident in France, Jerry Léonide, is the key to a whole world; to the music and joie de vivre of an island paradise 1,700 km from the coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean. Léonide translates the irresistible, bouncingly danceable, clearly African influenced grooves and light and breezy crystal-clear melodies of his homeland into the vocabulary of jazz. He himself says of his debut: "For me 'The Key' is the revelation of Mauritian music before the eyes of the world." His global piano playing enthralled the jury of the "Solo Piano Competition 2013" at the Montreux Jazz Festival so much that they awarded him first prize. line up Jerry Léonide - piano Gino Chantoiseau - double bass Jhonny Joseph - drums & percussion Sylvain Gontard - flugelhorn Vincent Lê Quang - soprano saxophone
