Ludivine Issambourg, a musician recognized as «spearhead of the French electro-jazz scene» returns to his first loves with the project «OUTLAWS». Her passion for flute and eclecticism, groove, funk and the sound of the 70’s pushes her back into the world of one of the greatest masters of the style: Hubert Laws. Hubert Laws, one of America’s greatest flutists, has had an immense career for more than 50 years. He is one of the few classical artists to master also the genres jazz, pop, rhythm & blues, passing effortlessly from one repertoire to another. He has about 20 albums as a leader. Her sideman career is equally impressive: Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Milt Jackson, Freddie Hubbard, Bob James… It should be noted that he is also the most sampled flutist in hip-hop. He is a model for Ludivine: his mastery of the instrument is very precise and his musicality unparalleled. In order to reclaim this repertoire that she has been listening to since her earliest years, Ludivine naturally proposed to Eric Legnini to be its director and artistic director. They were interested in the recordings published on the CTI label during the 1970s. Their collaboration leads them to work with a sound of the time, recording notably on a table Neve, mythical of those years, but ensuring to bring modernity, especially in the sound and arrangements.
In early 2020, the talented flutist Ludivine Issambourg offers us her Tribute to Hubert Laws with the release of her with the release of his new album «OUTLAWS ». A project with colors and sounds 70’s recorded with the greatest musicians of the current jazz scene.
In order to perfect the picture, Ludivine surrounded himself with outstanding musicians, renowned national and international:
Eric LEGNINI Artistic direction & Fender Rhodes
Laurent COULONDRE Organ & Clavinet
Julien HERNE Bass
Stéphane HUCHARD Drums
Mathieu GIBERT (Mrgib) Sound engineer
SPECIAL GUEST Christophe CHASSOL sur le track «What do you think of this world now?» , which is, for the record, the music of his answering machine for 20 years!
