Who doesn't know the Belmondo brothers? Stéphane, great lyricist of his instrument and one of the most appreciated trumpeters this side of the Atlantic. Lionel, the saxophonist, is tireless when it comes to combining musical styles. "Brotherhood" is the fifth album by the Belmondo Quintet. It is the return of a band that, in the course of its turbulent history, has recorded some of the best of French jazz and thus has been and continues to be a model for several generations of French musicians.
Trained in the rough school of reading, listening, standards and imitation, the Belmondo brothers have been immersed in music for as long as they can remember, under the influence of their father Yvan, saxophonist, impresario and teacher, who died in December 2019. "Brotherhood" is only the fifth album of the Belmondo Quintet. It marks the return to the record of a group that, over the course of a rich and tumultuous history, has welcomed the finest of French jazz and set an example for several generations of French musicians.
Brotherhood was nominated for a jazz award.
