Album Notes
---- English ----

A voice you never heard before, a whisper as well as a burning wind. Priestess of the Sound, she would be, according to the rumors, haunting the outskirts of Paris...

Lou Tavano's first album as a leader was recorded November 2011, and arranged by Alexey Asantcheeff.
Released October 2012, self-produced, and entitled "Meets Alexey Asantcheeff", it is the result of their collaboration, their story since the day they met.

"This record is an invitation to enter Lou's imaginarium. The audacious and modern arrangements bring the classic interpretation of jazz standards to a whole new level. There you are in a surprising strange universe, rarely wandered around by jazz singers... The will to tell the story behind the words is obvious here. Lou leaves us bewitched, bothered and bewildered."

---- Français ----

Sa voix brume monte comme une fumée vers nous, un souffle à peine murmuré... Timbre insaisissable au halo de feu, prêtresse dévouée au culte du son, elle officierait selon les rumeurs dans les faubourgs de Paris…

Lou Tavano enregistre son premier disque en tant que leader en novembre 2011, arrangé par
Alexey Asantcheeff. Sorti en octobre 2012, en auto-production, intitulé "Meets Alexey
Asantcheeff", il est le fruit de leur rencontre et de leurs premières années de travail.

« Ce disque est une invitation à un voyage onirique dans l’imaginaire de Lou. Les arrangements
audacieux et modernes font oublier le standard originel pour nous faire plonger dans un
univers surprenant et inhabituel pour une chanteuse de jazz…
La volonté de raconter une histoire transparaît à chaque seconde de cet enregistrement.
Lou nous envoute littéralement, pour notre plus grand bonheur. »
