ODYSSEUS FANTASY / Will Galison – Karim Maurice – La Camerata

Karim Maurice, Will Galison, and string orchestra La Camerata present Odysseus Fantasy, an album supported by the French American Jazz Exchange (FAJE).

This fascinating collaboration was inspired by one of the most celebrated of all literary works, Homer’s Odyssey. Musical polymath Karim Maurice’s dreamlike original compositions are based on the epic tale of Ulysses, resulting in a soundworld of freshness and depth. The composer and pianist is joined by world-renowned harmonica-player Will Galison, described by master Toots Thielemans as “the most original and individual of the new generation of harmonica players”. The line-up is completed by a double bass and drum players, a harp and versatile french string orchestra from Lyon, La Camerata, led by violinist Gaël Rassaert.

Reviews

“… this is richly-textured, often sumptuous music… Galison’s playing shines throughout, as does Maurice’s…”
The Scotsman - Jim Gilchrist / 20 May 2019

“… every now and again a recording comes along that stops the breath and makes your heart skip a beat, making you want to hand out copies of it to complete strangers. Odysseus Fantasy is one of those instances.”
World Music Review - Raul da Gama / 23 July 2019
