Erik Truffaz is a French jazz trumpeter, infusing elements of hip hop, rock and roll and dance music into his compositions. Truffaz gained international attention with his second album on Blue Note, The Dawn, produced together with Patrick Muller, Marcello Giuliani and Mark Erbetta. Since then they have produced many Blue Note albums together such as Bending New Corners, which became a Silver Album in France. The 2007 release Arkhangelsk is a mixture of pop songs, French chanson, and jazz-groove. Ndagije Nya is Rapper/narrator/singer. He formed Silent Majority, which in a short while was joined by Erik Truffaz and several other musicians. The group recorded two albums, toured in the USA and Europe. Nya collaborated with Truffaz in recording of his four CDs, released on Blue Note (The Dawn, Bending New Corners, Saloua and Arkhangelsk).

It is unclear why Blue Note felt the need to repackage these tracks yet again; however, here they are and they are worth a listen. Containing tracks from the sessions that produced The Mask and its European version, The Dream, Bending New Corners is a groove-oriented work that draws heavily on late-'60s and early-'70s Miles Davis. To these ends, Truffaz is a forward-thinking improviser with a plangent tone and knack for writing funky, modal compositions. Adding to the hip quotient, rapper Nya guests on a few tracks, delivering a gruff, philosophical vibe that is more G. Love than G Unit. Recorded in 1999, the tracks seem more connected to the post-rock, jazz-rap movements of the '90s; in the post-2000 world they don't feel as cutting edge as Truffaz would probably like them to seem.

e quartet d'Erik Truffaz reprend ici "Trippin’ The Lovelight Fantastic" avec Guillaume Perret au sax et le chanteur Nya. Paire rythmique excitante, ténor saignant à l'articulation limpide, utilisation parcimonieuse de l'électro, justesse des "samples" et du Rhodes, l'association réussie du rap avec le jazz, phrasé sûr et tranquille de la trompette... Il se dégage de ce concert une atmosphère légère et planante qui laisse beaucoup de place aux "sidemen" pour s'exprimer... 🎬 Jean-Marc Birraux Erik Truffaz - trompette Marcello Giuliani - basse Benoît Corboz - piano, Fender Rhodes Marc Erbetta - percussions With special guests : Nya - voix Guillaume Perret - saxophone

Personnel Patrick Muller: Fender Rhodes, Piano Marc Erbetta: Drums, Percussion Marcello Giuliani: Electroacoustic Bass, Double Bass Erik Truffaz: Flugelhorn, Trumpet Composers Erik Truffaz The Dawn is the third recording by the SwissBorn/French trumpeter Erik Truffaz. Recorded back in 1997 and is a mixture of Jazz with Hip Hop.Patrick Muller plays piano and Fender Rhodes. Marcello Giuliani is doing Bass and Marc Erbetta on Drums and the vocals are done by "Nya".Acid Jazz that is for sure with this fairly short prduction containing 8 tracks around 27 to 28 minutes in length only. It was not released at full price by Blue Note because of that factor. "Bukowsk-Chaptwer" begins proceedings and is a short piece but really the album does not find any groove till the next track "Yuri's Chapter "with Nya providing vocal along with some nice piano and that snappy beat behind,Erik comes in on Trumpet and then back to Nya. By far the best track is next and that is the title "The Dawn" We get some lovely playing from Erik who has that low Miles Davis tone. No Hip Hop in this one and although the beat underneath is moving along Erik holds his own solo over it.Patrick Muller comes in on Fender as well for a short solo.Track 4 "Wet in Paris" does not quite do it. I feel more trumpet and no Hip Hop would have been preferable."Slim Pickings" is next and is straight Hip Hop unaccompanied which leads to track 6 Round Trip once again with the omission of vocals just the band with Erik and this one is the other real highlight in the album.Great atmosphere with this tune.There are 2 other tracks to go and both have vocals."The Mask" and "Free Stylin" and the title is ample description for the last track. While I find nothing wrong with the vocalist it at times is outright annoying in places and even seems dated but yet it is the brief unaccompanied track "Slim Pickings" that I like mostby him. Erik is a lovely trumpet player and if you like the sound of Acid Jazz this is a great little album to hear in the quiet late at night and yes it does have a great feel in places but only in places.
