As part of the Couleurs Jazz au Canal, Lior Frief Quartet is pleased to present his music.
In partnership with Couleur Jazz
Born from the encounter between Lior Krief and Baptiste Herbin, the New Light project is the meeting of the ardor of gypsy jazz and the bebop improvisation of the saxophone. Accompanied by the excellent Simba Baumgartner, great-grandson of Django, and the double bass player Esteban Felix, the Lior Krief Quartet takes us into a jazz with a lightning rhythm!
It is in 2021, during a recording that Lior Krief and Baptiste Herbin meet. It's a real musical love at first sight. Lior plays with Simba Baumgartner, Django Reinhardt's great-grandson, and they decide to create this project mixing modern jazz, be-bop and gypsy music tradition. After a year of playing in Paris, they decide to record this project with the double bass player Esteban Félix. This is the birth of the New Light project !
