On Everlasting, Vincent Lê Quang offers to our ears his broad palette as a composer and the richness of his saxophone playing. For this first record as a leader after years of working with Daniel Humair or Henri Texier and notable collaborations with Jeanne Added or Vincent Peirani, Lê Quang signs a deep and crepuscular work. Recorded in February 2020 at La Buissonne, from an extensive common repertoire, Everlasting benefited from the precious help of the producer and sound engineer Gérard de Haro. Lament of a dreamed Orient, Mitteleuropa harmonies, swing of a chosen America: If jazz is a crossbreeding, it sounds on Everlasting with the improbable accents that bathe the composer's universe of Vincent Lê Quang. It is the shock of urgency facing the upheavals of all that man thought eternal that has fuelled the conception of Everlasting, as well as a loving glance for music of the past, which emerges, here behind a medieval melisma, there in the vocal style of a ballad. Through a fluid music, sometimes of a rare incandescence, Vincent Lê Quang, Joe Quitzke, Bruno Ruder and Guido Zorn invite us to travel. But far from a series of postcards coming from dead shores, we are invited to a mysterious Whole. Inner music, from the space within, as Henri Michaux would say, which seeks the eternal novelty of emotion through the forest of sounds.
