C’est avec grand plaisir que je vous annonce la parution de Perpetual Motion sur le label Jazz Village.
Vous trouverez des liens pour l’acheter dans la section « music and more » et il y a aussi un très bel article de 4 pages dans le dernier numéro de Jazz Magazine, pour lequel cette photo à été prise (©Sylvain Gripoix)

Hi everyone,

Fresh News

Hi everyone,

First of all, I’m very excited to announce that Laborie Jazz will release the second album of my band Alphabet next February.
I will also release my next projects on this label and I’m very proud of that !
I just recorded for Pascal Schumacher’s next album for that same label, alongside amazing musicians and my friend the fantastic Finish trumpet player Verneri Pojhola.

Perpetual Motion, our dvd/cd live from april ’13 is coming next september 9th, on Jazz Village, this is also a thrill for me to bring out the result of this gigantic work, very much looking forward to it as well.

And next season will be amazing, Art Sonic is in residence for the year @ l’Atelier du Plateau, this place we love, Joce and I are preparing 3 new programs, with very high ambitions for the group.

I will play both Perpetual Motion and Art Sonic in September during the next Jazz à la Villette festival, they call us « under the radar », which I have to admit, I like a lot !

Last but not least, next November I’ll be composing and playing some music for the next Guangzhou lights feast opening show with my friend Clément Himbert, electronic music master Olivier Sens and the Guangzhou Philarmonic Orchestra, this should really be fun as well.

Lots of love

Perpetual Motion
