No Deal

· by Alain Brunet

With her vision, her singularity, her refinement and her degree of virtuosity, Melanie De Biasio has imposed her voice in the world of jazz. She knows how to use its gentle violence, how to extract the best from the flute despite its technical limits, and how to surround herself with musicians (keyboards, percussions, double bass, electronics) capable of developing a minimalist and bewitching approach that has continued to improve over the past decade. Coltranian atmospheres from the Love Supreme era are projected into the present, Portishead-style trip hop becomes jazz, Nina Simone’s sensual gravitas is also evoked, all winning moves by De Biasio, an exceptional artist.
