Unique and different.
When Marlon asked me to be his agent in France 1O years ago, I started to look for audience and musicians with the idea to play his music in Paris as a project. Jazz French listeners are too conservative and often tag Latin Jazz as Salsa. Even Jerry's Gonzalez "Rumba Para Monk" success rewarded cd in 89 didn't really make this interest for Latin Jazz to grow or happen.. Then I met Marc Glomeaux and his band "Black Chantilly"; It was the first time I could listen to tremendous 6/8 latin tunes from a French Jazz Band which was hardly trying to make a place to this style of music in my country and was surviving playing Salsa in summer festivals. I immediately told Marco about Marlon. Marco is from Clermond-Ferrand, he started to play congas as a teenager when he got hooked on a Palmieri tune on a local radio :))) After 5 years that Marco met Marlon here is the first fruit of this unique and wonderfull Usa/France RumbaBop authentic communion. The deep sensitive playing is different than the Latin Jazz played in Usa, but Marlon's Music is there, more than ever!! :) I am Damned impressed myself by the result. I am proud of my both friends Marlon and Marc. Y que viva la Musica! Aché!! :))) (Changophil on youtube)
