Roger Guerin: Le Formidable - Paris Meetings (CD: Fresh Sound)
At the end of the 1940s, young French jazz musicians started flocking towards the two styles of modern jazz—bebop and cool. Paris was the capital of European jazz, and the talent of the local musicians playing in Parisian clubs was often comparable to that of their American colleagues. In that league, we found mostly French and some Belgian names, such as Bobby Jaspar, Martial Solal, Pierre Michelot, Maurice Vander, Jean-Louis Viale, Benoit Quersin, René Thomas, Barney Wilen, René Urtreger, and several others.

This album is dedicated to one of them in particular: trumpeter Roger Guérin (1926-2010). Despite having very few recordings under his name and spending most of his career as a sideman, Guérin was never underappreciated by jazz fans and critics: after all, he was chosen as the best French jazz trumpeter ten years in a row (1955-65) by the “Jazz-Hot” readers’ and critics’ poll. In these sessions we find him alongside great American jazzmen like James Moody, Jimmy Raney, Benny Golson and Bobby Timmons, but also in the company of his French comrades, giving his best in every performance.

• He was involved in many of the projects that pushed the evolution of modern jazz in France. An arranger of the stature of Billy Byers, who worked in Paris for a while in 1956, described him like this: “There are some very good musicians in France: Roger Guérin is a great jazzman.” (Discovery Records)

Rene Urteger: Early Trios (CD: Fresh Sound)Rene Urteger: Early Trios (CD: Fresh Sound)
René Urtreger (Paris 1934-) has always been an extraordinarily gifted pianist, an assured player who delivers his unhurried flow of ideas with swing and clean improvisations. By the age of eighteen he already stood out as a jazzman. The way he understood the conventions of bop piano even at a young age, playing the style as if he were born into it, soon made him one of the essential figures in the development of modern French jazz.This CD compilation contains all of his early trio recordings, starting with two tracks performed during a live concert at the Apollo Théâtre in May 1954. He was ably backed by bassist Benoît Quersin and drummer Jean-Louis Viale, who became his first regular rhythm section. With them, he recorded his debut album for Barclay a year later, an effort dedicated to the music of his main influence, master bebop pianist Bud Powell. By then René was in his twenties, and although he had not fully matured yet as an artist, his musical character was more than enough to turn emotions. He had impressed pianist John Lewis of MJQ fame, with his work for Miles Davis and Lester Young in 1956. So when René put together a new trio with Paul Rovère on bass and Al Levitt on drums, Lewis decided to cut four tracks for an Atlantic album he produced called Jazz Piano International, intended for the American market.

This, in turn, piqued the interest of the Versailles label, which asked René to record a new trio album, which he led with hard swinging imagination. There is a free-wheeling, coasting sort of feeling to his playing that is, still today, truly exhilarating. He was described by André Hodeir as “one of the European musicians who swings the best.” Listening to these recordings, there’s little doubt why René Urtreger was the favorite accompanist of most of the American stars who visited Paris in the prolific jazz scene of the Fifties and early Sixties. A true living legend. (Discovery Records)
