Album Notes
"Softly ..." revisits jazz repertoire (Softly as in a Morning Sunrise, Stompin 'at the Savoy), as well as Malagasy pop (Voninavoko) and traditional music (Pangalana). There are also original compositions (Inty hira inty mampanontany, Muir Woods).
The music is bright, accessible and sophisticated at the same time. It goes straight to the heart, thanks not only to the rapport between the two musicians, but also to the swing and groove arising out of each piece. Fabien’s jazz phrasing responds to the more pop style of Joël, and the mix of genres is a real success.

As indefinable as it is, this original music can’t help but touch a wide audience open to jazz, song, folk, blues or pop. An audience open to the world. An audience open, simply, to good music.


Softly reprend un répertoire jazz, mais aussi pop ou folk. On y retrouve également des compositions originales.
La musique est lumineuse, accessible et sophistiquée à la fois. Elle touche directement au cœur grâce la complicité des deux musiciens mais aussi grâce au swing et au groove qui émane de chacun des morceaux. Le phrasé jazz de Fabien répond, à celui, plus pop, de Joël et le mélange des genres est une véritable réussite.

Aussi indéfinissable soit-elle, cette musique originale ne peut que toucher un large public, ouvert au jazz, à la pop, la chanson, au folk, au blues ou la pop. Un public ouvert au monde. Un public ouvert, simplement, à la bonne musique.
