ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Through this authentic fake double album, guitarist Yann Viet demonstrates he shines in a very difficult art, as he revisists with interest and pertinence pieces of musicians such as Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Pat Metheny, David Bowie or Serge Gainsbourg, who influenced his path. He even succeds in adding his own compositions to his adaptations without appearing to be presumptuous. From one end of this "LiFe oN MArS?" to the other, Viet and his musicians (Marc Eliard on the bass guitar, Michel Julien on the battery, William Lecomte on keyboards, Sylvain Gontard and Gilles Relisieux on the trumpet and Jaco Largent on drums) handle the musical material with the same expression and the same flexibility, maintaining consistency between covered themes and original melodies. From a "guitaristic" point of view, the strongest moment of this opus is, without a doubt, the somptuous arrangement he made of the great David Bowie's "Life on Mars?", for guitar only. On this piece, Yann draws the melody all in arabesques, using his re-harmonisation skills to get us lost in an ocean of beauty. This album is especially dedicated to jazz, improvisation and beautiful guitar lovers.
