Eric Sempe: Synopsis - Rebirth CD available

Created by guitarist Eric Sempe and bassist Marc Peillon, "Synopsis" become a reference in the world of Jazz Fusion during the 1990s.
Four CDs have punctuated this long career: most recently in 1998, "Home", featuring the legendary U.S. saxophonist David Sanborn.

Ten years later Eric Sempe gives new life to the group as the "Eric Sempe & Synopsis". Enriched with wonderful musicians and stars such as vocalist/drummer Felix Sabal-Lecco (Sade Salif Keita, Youssou N'Dour, Paul Simon, John Scofield, Peter Gabriel ...), bassist Dominique Di Piazza (John McLaughlin ...), saxophonist Neil Gerstenberg, pianist Claude Tedesco, and percussionist/vocalist Gerard Kurdjian, "Eric Sempe & Synopsis" is a shock sextet where the sounds of jazz mingle with an atmosphere of world music and lounge, and electronic sounds blend smoothly with ethnic influences (India, Armenia, Cameroon).

In the tradition of the great jazz rock groups of the 70s and 80s, but with the sound and energy of the nascent twenty-first century, "Eric Sempe & Synopsis" offers a music of balance between improvisation and composition, of strong collective yet intimate improvisation and rhythmic explosion, in order to take the listener on a genuinely exhilarating journey, both dense and sensual.

The communicative warmth with which musicians fuel this well-oiled machine wins over even the most reserved audiences, "Eric Sempe & Synopsis" is one of the most interesting among today's Jazz Fusion outfits in Europe.
