ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Natalie Cressman and Secret Garden is a project that exposes the elasticity of genres, pushing away musical boundaries and allowing styles to blend into one another, and in the process creating something refreshing and universal. The music featured on "Unfolding" encompasses the varied influences of all the great music of today, including jazz, indie rock, R&B, folk, and world music. However, the nature of this project is to do away with those labels entirely in order to create a unique hybrid that transcends the limitations of categorization."Unfolding," Natalie Cressman's debut album, features nine songs, seven of which are original compositions. The band consists of Ivan Rosenberg (trumpet), Chad Lefkowitz-Brown (tenor sax), Pascal Le Boeuf (piano), Ruben Samama (bass), Jake Goldbas (drums) and special guest Peter Apfelbaum (tenor sax.

Stéphane Lespès

Jardin secret
On dit parfois qu'il est difficile (et en fait impossible) de choisir entre son père et sa mère. Avec un papa tromboniste et une maman chanteuse, la jeune Natalie n'a pas dû se poser beaucoup de questions : elle a fait les deux ! Avec bonheur, et surtout beaucoup de naturel, c'est une évidence à l'écoute de son premier opus, réalisé en compagnie de musiciens de sa génération. Des compositions assez marquées par l'air du temps, mais qui ont le mérite d'être agréables, complétées notamment par un Honeysuckle Rose auquel il est difficile de résister (si tant est que l'on ait cette idée saugrenue...). Tout au long de ce disque finalement très cohérent, la rythmique fait donc son effet et notamment Jake Goldbas au drumming actif mais pas envahissant.
Côté solistes, on remarque Pascal Le Boeuf qui se taille la part du lion sur les deux premiers morceaux, Ivan Rosenberg souvent surprenant et chaleureux à la trompette, sonnant parfois comme un cornet, Chad Lefkovitz-Brown au ténor qui ne fait pas semblant sur Reaching for Home, et une belle apparition de Peter Apfelbaum sur le titre final, mettant sur orbite la tromboniste pour un nouveau solo splendide et inspiré. Voilà donc un jardin secret qui mérite d'être ouvert à un large public.
