To say that Vincent Peirani shook the world of jazz accordion is an understatement… In 2015, his album Living Being further broke down the preconceptions of the instrument. “I wanted to start my own band, in which I needed to feel confident“, explained the accordionist. I wanted to feel like a “family”. That’s why I got in touch with four musicians who are good friends of mine“. Peirani teamed up with Emile Parisien, his partner from the duo Belle Epoque, as well as the bassist Julien Herné, the drummer Yoann Serra and the keyboardist Tony Paeleman… The compositions by Peirani and the covers of Michel Portal and Jeff Buckley make Living Beingan incredibly holistic album. These young musicians succeed in closing the gap that sometimes exists between composition and improvisation. Vincent Peirani’s writing is touching and imaginative yet also surprising and elusive. The accordionist is from a generation that draws its inspiration from various musical sources, hence the albums’ richness. Three years later, with the same group members, Living Being II (Night Walker) is also wonderfully rich. Peirani also includes four covers alongside his eight compositions: Bang Bang by Sonny Bono, What Power Art Thou, an extract from King Arthurby Purcell and two hits by Led Zeppelin, Kashmirand Stairway To Heaven. His approach towards this atypical choice of covers is fascinating, as is the way in which his instrument adapts the score of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. Living Being II (Night Walker) is principally the success of a group who are in perfect equilibrium. Osmosis at its best.  – Max Dembo
