A fully controlled tradition can rub shoulders with others styles. This is never as true as when one listens to the CD single which the trio « FULUP CELTIC SWING? » has just produced. Tanguy, 15, makes his old S.G ring out as if it were a double bass. Edern's acoustic jazz guitar diffuses a swing rhythm, worthy of Django REINHARDT, in which he goes of into inspired improvisations, interpreting reels, jigs and gavottes. As for the Celtic harp of Job, it is completely in its element, in this universe very hot. It must be said that this musician from Central Brittany has been piercing the secrets of his instrument for well on 15 years. His previous record « Harpeur », on which he played, in 1991, traditional Irish and Breton melodies heightened by his own compositions, was praised by critics including States.
On the the new single, Job sings in Breton as well as throwing out his crystalline notes upon unbridles tempos of his two young companions.
AZIMUT. « Nuages ….Nuages »
Another opportunity to jazz in those swinging strato-cumulus of Django REINHARDT and the cross roads Brezhoneg.
FULUP CELTIC SWING? temptingly invite us to journey with them, especially to a vagabondage . Job, Edern and Tanguy, between electric and acoustic guitar, unbridled solos and traditional tunes, hot jazz and swing, Celtic magic and Breton song, harmonies of high standard and melodic gypsy topics open us new doors towards World Music.
Danse (Gavottes de nulle part,) Excellente introduction., gavotte des Montagnes belle à faire pleurer ; j'écoute la bande deux mois après et je relis mes notes : c'est beau, plein, calme, dansant, presque parfait, le presque n'est là que par pudeur! Nous tenons là un talabarder qui, à 19 ans, a déjà rejoint sur plus d'un point l'esprit des anciens sonneurs.
