Jerry Leonide feat. Gino Chantoiseau, Jhonny Joseph, Sylvain Gontard & Vincent Le Quang - The Key (2014)

'The Key', the debut album of the Mauritian pianist Jerry Léonide, is the key to a whole world; to the music and joie de vivre of an island paradise 1,700 km from the coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean. Léonide translates the irresistible, bouncingly danceable, clearly African influenced grooves and light and breezy crystal-clear melodies of his homeland into the vocabulary of jazz. He himself says of his debut: "For me 'The Key' is the revelation of Mauritian music before the eyes of the world." His global piano playing enthralled the jury of the 'Solo Piano Competition 2013' at the Montreux Jazz Festival so much that they awarded him first prize. 'The rhythms and melodies from Mauritius are part of my musical DNA. It's from them that I draw my ideas, and I am sure that they are also where the originality of my music comes from. And I have always been open to jazz, classic and the widest range of traditional music.' 'The Key' now opens the door to a whole new musical world for a broad audience.

Review
Pianist Jerry Léonide arrived on the international jazz scene with a splash when he won the Montreux Jazz Festival solo piano competition last year. Born and raised in Mauritius, then transplanted to France at 17 to further his musical education, Léonide s musical appeal, reflected here with much larger forces, depends on a refreshing blend of Mauritian melodies, jazzed up with the standards Léonide used to play to tourists at home, then filtered through the more cerebral and contemporary sounds of his French academic training, in the form of the keening blend of soprano sax and flugelhorn. There are touches of minimalism, too, in the ebb and flow of piano arpeggios. "Independance Day" parts 1 & 2, which bookend the album, have as the name suggests, a Mauritian flavour, with vivid melody in the piano line and percussion dancing over brooding, contemporary flugelhorn chords. The title track also uses rootsy piano melody, balanced by more restrained brass lines that show the composer s Parisian training. On Black River Road and Dodo Baba , Fannie Klein s vocals accent the folk flavour even more vividly, while both parts of Rue de Paris use Linley Marthe s bass to evoke a much funkier, more metropolitan scene. Possessed of this original palette of sounds, and photogenic into the bargain, Léonide s star is clearly rising. Is is fanciful to hear similarities with the great Horace Silver, who also took island melody, in his case Cape Verdean, to blend into a contemporary jazz tapestry? Léonide claims that the key in the title refers to the revelation of Mauritian music before the eyes of the world". That s a little grandiose for a single disc of tracks which have a strong contemporary French flavour, too. But a glimpse through a keyhole, perhaps, into a new jazz fusion territory? This album does that very well. 4 STARS --theartsdesk
