| Press review |

« Great French specialist in jazz drumming, Guillaume Nouaux gives us here a precious collection, which takes stock of 60 years of jazz tempo and solos. Jazz Drums Legacy features 30 drum parts from jazz legends, complete or partial pickups from Baby Dodds to Brian Blade. The whole is interspersed with very relevant and often valid considerations of the author for all styles concerning the work of the technique, the swing, the dynamics, the musicality, the experience... also supplemented by quotes from stars of the instrument.

This remarkable work is obviously only intended for advanced drummers, familiar with the style and eager to know all its subtleties, and completely at ease with rhythmic music theory. If you are in this case, get Jazz Drums Legacy urgently ! »

JAZZ BRUSHES

Jazz brushes method

by Guillaume Nouaux

GUILLAUME NOUAUX | Jazz Brushes (2Mc éditions)

34,50 €

| Press review |

« A veritable living encyclopedia of jazz drumming, Guillaume Nouaux is a renowned pedagogue and an essential musician on the jazz circuit. Already author of an excellent book published in 2012, Jazz Drums Legacy, the musician from Arcachon creates a surprise with Jazz Brushes, an original method dedicated to the art of playing with brushes. For this unique and ultra-playful work, Guillaume had the brilliant idea of adopting a life-size presentation of a snare drum.

Purpose ? Apply the exercises directly on the pages of the book, simply with a pair of brushes, to work anywhere, and without equipment... Thirty diagrams will help you learn about the different techniques and movements used in the jazz repertoire. A fun approach designed for drummers of all levels. »

« Guillaume Nouaux is an astonishing character in more ways than one, embodying uncompromising hyper-technique, effortless power, constant swing, and a highly developed ability to listen and adapt. His drums reign over this album, uniting the talent of his seven partners, adapting to each of them without any redundancy. And what a swing ! Jazz, a pulse, a language, they say. From that side, everyone is at the meeting, at their best level, and him first. It is one of the greatest jazz records of this 2020 which is so difficult for musicians. And if I have any advice to give you, it's not to miss it ! »

« Known for regularly accompanying soloists of the caliber of Leroy Jones, Evan Christopher and other New Orleans residents, this trio proves here that it can be self-sufficient to constitute a group in its own right. It provides stimulating music to perfection. Jazz standards simmered in blues and funk sauce find an intact freshness. An invigorating bath of youth that it would be wrong to ignore. »

« A novelty from Guillaume Nouaux is always to be welcomed, especially since he is staying the course in a context that continues to decline. He opts here for the clarinet-piano-drums formula that Trevor Richards, a disciple of Zutty Singleton, has been defending for years and of which Guillaume Nouaux is a serious rival. It is perfect both in the subtlety of accompaniment and in solo. He knows how to give the right tempo, he knows how to play a theme, his solos are never boring. Let's hope for this album the success it deserves ! »

« There are discs that exude the pleasure that musicians have had in playing and recording, and this disc, in substance as in form, is undeniably a ray of sunshine. A drummer with a subtle touch who has the groove and swing of the greatest, Guillaume Nouaux has invited four outstanding musicians for this opus. A little over an hour of warm, sincere and poetic jazz, which fully deserves its 4-star rating. »

« This young, very young musician is a revelation. It's been a long time since jazz lovers have heard this. Finally a drummer that swings without hammering, that you feel at least as much as you hear, and above all that "sings"; listen carefully to his solos, sometimes we recognize the melody of the piece. All these fundamentals left to us by the great drummers of jazz history, we despaired of finding them one day. It means talent, a lot of talent and hard work, hard work with a big dash of passion. »
