Sylvie Courvoisier - Mark Feldman Quartet

Jez Nelson presents a concert given by the Sylvie Courvoisier - Mark Feldman Quartet at the 2011 Nevers Jazz Festival in France.

Jez Nelson presents a concert by the Sylvie Courvoisier - Mark Feldman Quartet. A former Nashville country fiddler, Mark Feldman also happens to have the tone and virtuosity of a concert violinist. He is perhaps best known for his collaborations with influential musician-composer John Zorn and as member of the Tiny Bell Trio. Swiss born pianist Courvoisier has a background in the European avant-garde and is often associated with New York leftfield improvisers like Ikue Mori, Tim Berne and Ellery Eskelin. With Thomas Morgan on bass and drummer Gerry Hemingway, the quartet's music brings together abstraction with an accessible melodicism. Recorded at the Nevers Jazz Festival in France.
