about

For her third ambitious album with a Coltranian title, Joy Ascension, Macha Gharibian assumes her posture as a pianist, singer, author, composer, arranger, producer and leader. Around her, two colorists who handle notes like gouache, drummer Dré Pallemaerts and double bassist Chris Jennings, plus two guests, Bert Joris who draws with his trumpet cool dazzling a la Chet on the aerial ballad The Woman I Am Longing To Be and Artyom Minasyan who reinforces with his doudouk the hypnotic Sari Siroun Yar. The volcanic voice of Macha Gharibian brings her into the family of solar and inhabited vocalists, this very closed club which goes from Nina Simone to Mélissa Laveaux. Album of a free woman and an artist of her time, Joy Ascension is a precious disc that awakens our senses.

Pour son troisième album ambitieux au titre coltranien, Joy Ascension, Macha Gharibian assume sa posture de pianiste, chanteuse, auteure, compositrice, arrangeuse, réalisatrice et leader. Autour d’elle, deux coloristes qui manient les notes comme de la gouache, le batteur Dré Pallemaerts et le contrebassiste Chris Jennings, plus deux invités, Bert Joris qui dessine avec sa trompette des fulgurances cool à la Chet sur la ballade aérienne The Woman I Am Longing To Be et Artyom Minasyan qui renforce avec son doudouk l’hypnotique Sari Siroun Yar. La voix volcanique de Macha Gharibian la fait entrer dans la famille des vocalistes solaires et habitées, ce club très fermé qui va de Nina Simone à Mélissa Laveaux. Album d’une femme libre et d’une artiste de son époque, Joy Ascension est un disque précieux qui vient réveiller nos sens.
