A 5th album in 2020, January
RÉMI PANOSSIAN TRIO celebrates its 10th anniversary and has returned to its roots by recording a 5th album in the pure tradition of acoustic trios. In Odd We Trust, an anniversary album in which live energy, which made the trio’s success, is honored.
Acclaimed by critics, the album was selected by FIP Radio in its "February albums list", followed by a live broadcast “Jazz Live” on TSF Jazz and “Open Jazz” on France Musique radios, while the tracks Seven Hills and Vengeance Tardive take place respectively in "Jazz for Work" and "Jazz Now" playlists on Deezer, and "State of Jazz" playlist on Spotify. Album has reached 550.000 streams on web.
In Odd We Trust, we believe in the strange. As its audience knows, those “enfant terrible of jazz” like to shake and challenge rules and habits. An inventiveness close to playfulness, in the service of poetic melodies, heady grooves, and the happiness to play together.
The title and the cover of the album show the color: fantasy, surrealism, imaginary, absurd.
On the occasion of this album, the trio offers a James Bond style clip with images from their fall tour in Brazil, Mexico, Uruguay and France.
RÉMI PANOSSIAN Solo
Besides his trio project with whom he performed on prestigious jazz stages all around the world, Rémi Panossian presents a piano solo “DO”. In this project, the artist expresses himself in a direct and intimate way.
Do, the note do …
Means the “island” in Korean, the “way” in Japanese, the “stone” in Tibetan,” to accomplish” in English ...
So many meanings to this word, so many internal resonances to Rémi Panossian.
Lover of melodies, Rémi Panossian’s lives are energetic, captivating, and organic (orgasmic). On stage he gives life to his music, between poetic delicacy, rock references, and flamboyant lyrical style.
For 12 years, when he was not touring the world with his RP3 trio, Rémi performed solo piano every Tuesday in "Rest’O Jazz" club in Toulouse.
In 2016, the artist realized two solo tours in Asia; then the desire to engrave this music grows. When he returned, he decided to record the solo at Rest’O Jazz, in this place full of memories.
In order to be closer to what animates him, for his first solo album, he teams up with his friend and longtime accomplice the trumpeter, composer Nicolas Gardel to whom he confides the artistic direction.
They record live, without touch-ups to stay close to emotion.
