The Storm Watchers are a melodious surge of jazz, pushed by the winds of East France. This quartet is orchestrated by Adrien Legay, a young composer and drummer from electronica band M.A BEAT!, who crossed the Atlantic to join the prestigious Berklee College Of Music in Boston. On the forecast: double bassist Julien Moneret and pianist Noé Degalle, as well as some strong winds coming out of Nicolas Gegout’s saxophones.
The second double single of The Storm Watchers, A Moment In Exile, a ballad in two compositions of 7 minutes each, showing a strong bias towards timeless post-bop and modal jazz sounds.
A MOMENT IN EXILE
BILLY’S CASTLE / THE PUSHER
Storm alert on the mountain tops of the Great East, where the horses gallop in the small hexagonal steppes. The forecast is Fender Rhodes rains, double-bass squalls, tenor saxophone lightnings, orchestrated by the infernal thunder of Adrien Legay’s drums. From the fusion of these four elements unleashed by a frenzied passion is born a tornado of blue notes reminiscent of good memories of the electric and ecstatic atmosphere of cottony jazz clubs.
