It all started with a commission from the Théâtre du Bois d’Arcy near Paris, to do a jazz performance with a theme. I spontaneously chose “cinema,” probably due to the strong connection between jazz standards and movies. It also felt like an amusing challenge to juxtapose genres and make each piece a kind of short film for the ears. Since that first performance, the project has rolled around in my head, hibernated, and periodically resurfaced. Today it has finally emerged from my mind’s egg.
In the past, movie music meant lush orchestration, so in recording this album I decided to pull a musical u-ey: only voice and guitar, with as little arrangement as possible. The idea of working with different guitarists felt natural in light of the sweeping differences between the pieces, and it was thrilling to work with no less than five masters of the instrument: Lionel Loueke, Nguyên Lê, Federico Casagrande, Guilherme Monteiro and Dano Haider. Each of the songs reflects some aspect of my personal or creative journey. Cut! That’s a wrap!
