Jazz at Green Room: Olivier Chavet Racines

"Racines" is a soul-oriented jazz album whose tracks spring from closeness to nature and moments of tranquility. No wonder. For music and nature are two elements that have shaped composer Olivier Chavet both privately and professionally since his childhood. Born in Aachen, Belgium, he is both a trained musician and a studied agricultural economist. In these two spheres of activity, he experiences on a daily basis that everything is interconnected like a web of roots.

And so "Racines" (French for "roots") is the musical treatment of themes that Olivier Chavet as a farmer and nature lover is concerned about. The nine songs released on the album express the desire for a simple life turned towards naturalness. The root as the anchor of all life embodies the cohesion that we all need so much. The work is a sublime journey from the absolute moment of calm, through a variety of groovy, naturally rolling motifs, to powerful musical expression.
