Info for Explorers



Asserting himself as an exciting voice among those who are bringing vibraphone back to the front of the stage, Alexis Valet presents a captivating album with a shifting format exploring multiple directions, marked by the participation of two major European figures, pianist Bojan Z and saxophonist Ben Van Gelder. True to its title, "Explorers" gives us an idea of what contemporary jazz inspires the most when it’s driven by a sense of invention and the magic of interplay.

Alexis Valet is one of the new faces of the French jazz scene, an accomplished Sideman (Xavier Belin Quartet, Shauli Einav Quintet, Joachim Govin Sextet) and also a leader. All freshly recorded at the studio of Meudon, his first album will be released in autumn 2019, with guests Magic Malik, Romain Pilon and Hermon Mehari. His compositions draw their inspiration in music as diverse as contemporary jazz, hip hop, free jazz or electro, while keeping a foot in the tradition of jazz.
