Juste une Trace



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!

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.

Didier Haboyan – alto saxophone, flute
Claudio Pallaro – tenor saxophone
David Patrois – vibraphone
Hubert Dupont – double bass
Julien Charlet – drums
