With more than thirty years of experience in jazz, more than half of which were spent on common projects, composers Didier Haboyan and Claudio Pallaro affirm their sincere passion for music and offer with “ONE PAGE” an unpredictable album. The Quintet featured here release an all original repertoire on October 21, 2022.
Haboyan / Pallaro is the meeting of two musicians with singular backgrounds. We find in their music all kinds of influences: rock and jazz, classical music, African, Indian, contemporary composers … everything that feeds jazz today.
From 2009 to 2019, we find them in the great ensemble Pee Bee, co-directed by Claudio Pallaro and Gary Brunton (Night Bus). Always driven by the desire to play together, Claudio and Didier continued their collaboration and initiated the project “ONE PAGE”, which reveals two personalities, two different approaches but the same language. They first formed a quartet without harmonic instruments (two saxophones, double bass, drums) which turned into a quintet with vibraphone.
Why “ONE PAGE”? Each of the compositions of the album fits on a single page…or almost. For the artists, it means going to the essential with spontaneity and creativity.
