Stéphan Oliva is one of the most assertive and exciting contemporary pianists. His poetic universe, saturated with serenity, where lines and arabesques are traced or curved with discretion often, but always with determination, distinguished him from his first moments on the jazz scene. The essence of his artistic personality is due to his inventive play, as subtle as a perfume one would be tempted to say: a refined touch knowing how to reach, when necessary, the strong and the power, without ever forcing or overbidding; an inimitable sense of harmony, between flow and fluidity. By successive touches, Stéphan Oliva has established his own pantheon made of attractive symbolism and vivid dreams. For the Sunside, he is preparing a solo filled with all his artistic stories, past and future, mixing memories of cinema, a tribute to Duke Ellington and territories to explore. His keyboard has not finished transforming into a garden for the daydreams of solitary walkers, all of us.
