ERIC SURMENIAN & JON URRUTIA
JAZZ / LATIN-JAZZ
ERRABAL JAZZ (GH ER125 02)
"Soleil d'Hiver", the recent and beautiful solo album by Jon Urrutia, made clear evidence of his mastery, and a privileged opportunity to delight in her in all her purity. However, it is perhaps when he finds the right counterpoint to establish a rich musical dialogue that all of his virtues truly emerge most dazzlingly. And without a doubt, French double bass player Eric Surmenian is up to the task.
An artist and person of multiple interests and hobbies, Eric Surmenian began his musical education with the practice of singing, dance and percussion, then went on to study classical guitar, discover rock and finally become hopelessly passionate about Jazz. Musician, painter, writer, and also a great fan of fly fishing. A meticulous, patient, subtle and delicate art, which, as recounted in a beautiful recent interview, is part of the same and exciting search in all areas of that fleeting and at the same time eternal moment in which the purest beauty unfolds. before us.
Recorded in November 2019 at the Mecca Recording studios by Mikel Eceiza, the cover versions and songs composed / improvised by Eric and Jon collected in this delicious “Contemplative Expresions” is full of those moments.
