Natural Element Quartet release their debut album Premier Element. The Parisian quartet featuring Clément Thirion on double bass, Franck Morin on piano, Renaud Védie on guitar and Patrick Chenais on drums, Natural Element Quartet offers a bewitching mosaic of harmonies, elegantly fusing jazz tints, contemporary nuances and improvised accents.
Since 2017, the stars seem to be aligning, guiding these four musicians towards a most inspired encounter, where a musical as well as human understanding blossoms naturally. A deep love for the melodies of great masters such as John Abercrombie, Kenny Wheeler and Marc Copland is the catalyst, feeding their burning desire to immerse themselves in them and express themselves in a unique way. In this quartet, three of the musicians compose. The genesis of their own carefully woven musical universe is thus embodied in original compositions, the fruit of each member’s artistic journey.
The album Premier Element is a tribute to the art of creation, where the harmony of the instruments intertwines with the sensitivity of the musicians. The music transcends the boundaries of time and space, inviting the audience to plunge into a sonic environment where each note is a star dancing in the ether of time. Natural Element Quartet’s jazz is for sharing!
