With “Wild Beasts”, clarinetist Jean-Marc Foltz and his three accomplices offer a jazz safari with feline accents. Eight expressive musical paintings constitute the stages of this journey. Through its audacity, the structured music evokes the freedom of wild fauna and like it, does not bother with constraints. A wild jazz adorned with colorist poetry.

A precious object for the ear, the album also takes care of its aesthetics, the illustration of the cover of which is to be credited to the designer Emmanuel Guibert, winner of the 2020 Grand Prix at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. We bet that his success is predictive of that of the album.
