"LIVING HOPE" - New Album from Markbass top-artist Dominique Di Piazza.

Dec. 9, 2016, midnight
Dominique decides to release his own compositions as a leader with those young and amazing musicians: Nicolas Viccaro on drums, Stéphane Chausse on Sax, EWI and Clarinet and Gregory Privat on Piano.

Although DDP can boast an outstanding path since his debuts in 1982, besides influencing bass players around the world with his distinctive technique, he has recorded very few albums in his own name over his 35 year career, even though he appears on numerous recordings.
With "Living Hope", recorded in quartet with three of the best musicians among the «new generation», DDP makes his big solo album come back, avoiding emphasis on his legendary virtuosity (as on stage when he lets himself get carried away by the heat of the moment ) to showcase his genuine musicality and sensitivity instead.
The eleven personal compositions that he offers are attractive from the outset, because of their extremely melodic character, wether they are soft ballads in which his fretless-like playing works wonders, or up-tempo pieces.
Moreover, his jazz, tinged with fusion, avoids the genre's traps : perfectly mastered yet airy, balanced and rooted, il allows plenty of space for mutual listening and improvisation, allowing Chausse, Privat and Viccaro, all of them flawless, to do their bit.
Nowhere close to a fireworks demonstration – unlike the unfortunate trio with Biréli Lagrene and Dennis Chambers – "Living Hope" prevails as the maturity album.
