This album is the result of a particular encounter out
of the many Jérémy Dumont has already had. It was
important for him to keep a permanent trace of the
magical moments they shared on tour, in line with the
Greats of all eras, who each in turn immortalized some
of their live concerts or exceptional encounters.
The album :
The title Eretz clearly defines Jeremy’s concept of bringing
together musicians from all walks of life to express the soul of his
compositions and arrangements.
In this sense, the Hebrew word Eretz, which means land, also evokes
the aspects of multi-culturality that this new album conveys.
With seven compositions and two standards, this new album is
sure to satisfy Jérémy Dumont’s current and future audiences!
The style :
These compositions show that Jérémy Dumont is increasingly
asserting himself as an inventive creator.
The spectre of styles becomes wider and, with help of his
remarkable accomplices who are all in perfect harmony with the
spirit of the arrangements, the result is up to expectations. Even
though the main influences perceivable when listening to the CD
are still Chick Corea or Avishaï Cohen, two of Jérémy’s original
mentors, the contributions of his co-artists enrich the palette.
All in all, the album elates us with a vibe that goes from mainstream
standard covers to multicoloured compositions that make for a
contemporary accessible jazz
