After the founding of a quartet with Jean-Paul Estiévenart, Jérémy Dumont decided to turn it into a quintet by inviting the most prominent alto saxophonist of today, Godwin Louis (Harlem, NY). The project clearly refers to his kinship. In the spirit of Chick Corea and Avishaï Cohen, who performed together in more than one large room, Jérémy Dumont has expanded his repertoire with standards from the great masters and personal compositions. Chick's influence, omnipresent in the style and explosive energy of Jérémy's compositions, and Jean-Paul's perfectly controlled breath provide harmony in the whole, to which Armando on the drums and Damien on the double bass add a colorful and enthusiastic rhythm. With one of the most beautiful alto sounds of the moment, Godwin Louis will be the last with a touch of tradition
lay hands on the deepest part of the soul of the quintet. A respectful approach that recreates a pure jazz spirit.
