Simon Moullier Quartet

Wednesday / February 20, 2013 / 7:00 p.m.
Oliver Colvin Recital Hall
1140 Boylston Street
Boston
MA
02215

 

This international quartet is an erupting volcano with Simon Moullier (France) on vibes, Samuel Batista (Panama) on alto saxophone, Elin Sandberg (Sweden) on upright bass, and Kazuhiro Odagiri (Japan) on drums. After several recording sessions in Berklee's studios, the Simon Moullier Quartet was selected by the Jazz Revelation label and is getting ready for a blow out in 2013.

The band’s main power source is its youth, releasing a constant energy that grows in Simon Moullier’s original compositions. The quartet is gathered around jazz, but only uses it as a color in the sound, through the use of acoustic instruments such as the alto saxophone or the upright bass, sometimes sullied by the overdrive on the vibraphone or by the mad itching rhythms that relates to Simon’s main influences: Radiohead, Aaron Parks, Robert Glasper, Tigran Hamasyan, and Christian Scott. The quartet's unique sound is due to the cohesion between the vibes and the alto saxophone that brings out simple and delightful melodies served with a wide range of harmonies. The upright bass and the drums, rooted with neo-soul and pop influences, installs a balance in the sound which creates a new style.
