NEW ALBUM “SOUFFLE”
with Giovanni Mirabassi, Baptiste Herbin, François Moutin and Lukmil Perez
(TO BE RELEASED SPRING 2022)
In her new opus “SOUFFLE,” Eva Slongo, for the first time, mixes jazz with classical music … improvisation with rigor … adventure with stability … her impulses with her origins!
In the world of jazz, she is called “the Benson of the violin” — she has with much originality combined scatting and violin playing in her improvisations …
Wonderful musicians accompany her in this project: Giovanni Mirabassi on piano and artistic direction, François Moutin on double bass, Cuban Lukmil Perez on drums, and the guest star: Baptiste Herbin on saxophone!
Thus was born the ALBUM “SOUFFLE”, in preparation for a release in spring 2022 …
