One of the greatest flutists of French jazz, who has traveled all the stages both as a leader (Magic Malik Orchestra, in Duet with Minino Garay ...) and as a guest (Julien Lourau, Steve Coleman, Asa, Hocus Pocus ...), returns to the side of new French jazz talents from various horizons.
Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, Clifford Brown… For the very first time, Magic Malik is tackling the repertoire of modern jazz! At the head of the Jazz Association which counts notably in its ranks the brilliant trumpeter Olivier Laisney (Slugged, Oxyd, Gil Evans Paris Workshop…) and the pianist Maxime Sanchez (recent finalist of the Monk Competition), the unclassifiable flautist plays this music which fed him, without nostalgia and without repetition, with his humor, his rigorous fantasy and the memory of Eric Dolphy and Booker Little in the back of his mind.
