Nathalie Blanc will help you experience some premium jazz. Scatting, instrumental superiority and style aside, the charm from her music is gorgeous. She keeps up with the most complex of sequences and moments-and it is glorious to feel. I introduce you to her latest single with Philippe Petrucciani, Let’s Have a Walk.
You know how a walk has organic pace? Not when you’re exercising, when you’re walking in conversation. Your tempo seems to mirror conversation, your mood and general pace. Nathalie Blanc does that, with her voice. To witness and hear it is magic in itself, so I encourage you to draw in all the different depths she goes into with her stylish scatting. We’re talking about circle of fifth jumps and alternating melody patterns that might not even coincide the next time. Her delivery is precise, yet carries the light air of a stroll in the park. As a listener, you’re being subjected to vocal jazz heaven right now. Pay enough attention, and you might see the notes move in front of you. Philippe Petrucciani does some amazing work on the instrumentals, bringing a real world of jazz heaven to your eardrums.
Their album Remember Petrucciani is one to remember for the indie jazz lovers here. Their lucid compositions, aesthetic styles and magic is truly worth admiring. This track would be perfect in the movie In Bruges (2008), with the kind of transitions that hold the storytelling together. You can listen to their single above, and follow them for more music like this!
