ETIENNE JAUMET GOES JAZZ
Jaumet is the name behind the legendary French bands Zombie Zombie, The Married Monk, The Tribute to La Monte Young (with Spacemen Three’s Sonic Boom), to name just few of the bands he’s played with. He plays sax with James Holden live band.
As a solo performer, Etienne delves into a box of inspirations drawn from horror movie soundtracks, jazz, French 1970s avant-garde, vintage italo, kosmische, library music and psychedelia, concocting a sound that is sensuous, intoxicating. Breathtaking in its imagination and cinematic scope, Jaumet’s live show which takes in saxophone and a vast array of vintage keyboards and synthesizers is essential viewing.
‘Night Music”, his first CD on Versatile Records (2009) was produced by Carl Craig. “La Visite”, his second album was out in 2014.
In October 2018 Etienne will have a new album on Versatile Records with covers of jazz classics: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, Art Ensemble of Chicago… again played with his signatures analog synths, drum machine and alto sax.
