The deeply melodic and natural compositions of Fabrice Alleman have been refined by musicians of rare sensibility, musicality and richness: Reggie Washington on bass, Nathalie Loriers on the Fender Rhodes and Lionel Beuvens on drums. This new quartet takes us to the boundaries of jazz and “groove”, a sound which is both modern yet at the same time anchored in tradition.

"Fabrice Alleman is a thinking man’s musician. His music is a reflection of a philosophy, an aesthetic. There is nothing random about it. The music grows from a conscious thought, a meditation, a desire to reach beauty. His album “Obviously” is the incarnation of this desire for perfection, rather like Greek statues. And like these sculptures, there is neither aridness nor bigotry: beauty is sensual, even ironic at times. To reach this dimension where colours, calmness, a groove, landscapes, serenity, inventiveness and even madness come together, Fabrice surrounds himself with musicians in whom he has absolute trust and complicity.
Nathalie Loriers marks Belgian jazz piano with her lyricism, Reggie Washington is a king of the bass, Lionel Beuvens colours his percussions and Lorenzo Di Maio is a talented young guitarist. And then there is Fabrice, composer and sax-player, clarinettist and singer, who carries the quartet/ quintet with his playing that sweeps from velvet-smooth to raging hot on compositions that are precise but open. “Music cannot stand still,” he says. “It is there to breathe.”
