Robin Nicaise celebrates the release of his 5th CD as leader : Building/Piano Studies (co-production Clapson Records), an ambitious, personal record in two parts: the first, the suite “Building”, is a veritable concerto for tenor sax, in which the latter dialogues with a jazz quartet and a string quartet. The second part, even more unexpected, features Robin’s own piano solo etudes, composed and recorded by Robin himself.
He will be accompanied by his usual partners:
Sandro Zerafa (guitar), Clément Simon (piano/Fender Rhodes), Yoni Zelnik (double bass) and Fred Pasqua (drums) + string quartet: Youri Bessières (first violin), Fanny Lévèque (second violin), Alain Martinez (viola) and Consuelo Uribe (cello).
Such a formula reveals his rare qualities as a composer and arranger, a refined and stimulating setting for soloists of the highest class.
