Editorial Reviews

Prepare yourself for the most important debut jazz recording since Esperanza Spaulding broke through a few years ago. Gregoire Marét is not only a musicians musician as evidenced by the testimonials above but hes a charismatic virtuoso whose musical concepts are at once highly melodic, soulful, swinging, and elegantly exploratory.

On his debut album, Gregoire proves himself to be a master interpreter of works by Chick Corea, Milton Nascimento, Stevie Wonder, Pat Metheny, and others; and also an impressionistic composer of great panache and sophistication in his own right. The selections are extended, diverse, richly textured and always engaging.

Supported by an impressive cast, including vocalists Cassandra Wilson and Raul Midòn, and bassist Marcus Miller, Gregoire Marét has brought forth that rare creation in todays jazz an album that is simultaneously forward-looking and in the moment. State of the art, 2012.

Mr. Maret is truly one of the best Chromatic Harmonica players in the business. His solo debut album is a stunning and welcome addition for those of us who love and/or play the jazz harp. This release contains a beautiful set of music. The tunes are quite laid back, but the music has a fresh, contemporary sound and feel. It can serve as superior mood or background music for casual listening. There is also plenty of sophisticated playing and musical interest for those who wish to listen more closely. The band and the arrangements are top notch. The recording quality is impeccable. The only thing that I miss about the music is that there aren't any up tempo numbers to add excitement. I feel sure that Mr. Maret planned the set that way though. Its clear that he can play whatever he chooses to play. Hopefully, he will include some faster numbers in his next release. All in all, this is a wonderful CD. I'm eagerly awaiting the release of his next one.

I saw Gregoire Maret with Pat Metheny Group during The Way Up tour years ago, and I remember him as an amazing talent. Didn't know he had any solo albums until I found this one listening to some Toots Theilman samples. This album is wonderful. Every track is great, which is rarely found. I can't recommend it highly enough. I hope this is the first of many future solo releases.

Maret has a sound, it is different, at the very least you will find that you can tell when Maret plays a tune...it has his definitive style reflecting his personal voice.

I host a chromatic harmonica website, MASTERSOFHARMONICA.COM and can say without question that Maret is the real thing. He has an extensive following in Europe.
