Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Mostly known as a piano jazz player, Thierry Mail-lard comes back this time again with a brilliant new album featuring a jazz trio, a symphonic or-chestra and very talented jazz guests as N'Guyen LÚ, Didier Malherbe e.a. Between soundtrack mu-sic & Jazz, his amazing music is very powerful and suggests lots of very pleasant climates which can appeal a wide audience. "My biggest musical dream has always been to hear one day my music written for a jazz trio and a symphon-ic orchestra. Since I discovered orchestration during my classical studies, I've been writing for an orchestra, influenced by my masters such as Bartok, Stravinsky and Webern, but I never had before the opportunity to make this project real. Some scores were already writ-ten, some others were added to them, always in the same purpose I'm cherishing: gathering Jazz, classic music and world music in the same music. A jazz trio, a symphonic orchestra along with instruments and play-ers from the world, sharing the same music. With this album, this dream is becoming true. It is and will re-main a moving and important event in my musical life, a real personal accomplishment." -- Thierry Maillard
