ALBUM PRESS REVIEWS



“Top album of the Month” JAZZ NEWS

“Disc of the Week” FIP RADIO FRANCE

“Disc of the Day” TSF JAZZ RADIO


“His walking bass is animated with this profoundness, this delicateness, this lyricism, this foundation and this sense of swaying walk, that he displays alone in the opening measures of the disc.” Franck Bergerot, JAZZ MAGAZINE/JAZZMAN No. 656


“Jennings’ compositions are built upon experimentation that is closely tied to a deep respect for tradition. There is a timely beauty in these tunes and a contemporary sense of flare into the trio interplay. This is neither Jazz nor World Music, though it has elements of both. It’s simply music without borders.” Ian Patterson, ALL ABOUT JAZZ


[Chosen in the "Top of the Month"] "Paris looks like the promise land for the Canadian double bassist catapulted high into the clouds with the last group of Dhafer Youssef (with Tigran Hamasyan and Mark Guiliana)... Jennings delivers nine songs and two "preludes": one bass, one nay and guitar, and confirms his attachment to his new home with "Always Line 9. Enjoy listening between Montreuil and Pont de Sèvres!" Francisco Cruz, JAZZ NEWS No. 28


"Jennings weaves sound landscapes of total beauty, bordering on the Middle East, Africa and Asia... The double bass, melodic, rhythmic and from time to time soloist, playing both pizzicato and bowing, is naturally sovereign in this refined and tailored environment which we are delightedly immersed in.” Paolo Coccina, BASSISTE MAGAZINE No. 53


“The double bass resonates with all its roundness et profoundness to orchestrate an unclassifiable music born through enormous artistic complicity. A very beautiful disc that opens untouched lands, freed of musical borders.” Thierry Giard, CULTURE JAZZ


“A very beautiful encounter between cosmopolitan virtuosos who have understood that genuine dialog is always enriching.” Franpi Barriaux CITIZEN JAZZ

    Double bassist with Dhafer Youssef, Nguyên Lê, Joachim Kühn, Titi Robin Nargis Trio and Gregory Privat to name a few, this new ensemble of double bassist Chris Jennings as a leader once again surprises listeners with a unique collaboration of jazz double bass with the incredible japanese koto of Mieko Miyazaki and renowned and versatile french drummer Patrick Goraguer. The complicity of this double bassist and drummer for years now creates a solid and strong force allowing the flexibility of the japanese koto to fall perfectly in its place. The trio performs the signature compositions of Chris Jennings. Yet, a large part is left to improvisation and the immense talent of these three musicians. A unique trio  showing  an  obvious pleasure  in exploring the musical universes of the East, North, South and West, and then meeting in a centre filled with diverse influences and a huge liberty.
