Meddy Gerville's Maloya Jazz Project to Appear at Blue Whale in LA
Meddy Gerville’s version of ‘Blue Rondo’ is the fastest I've ever heard it played. He has remarkable technique. His improvisations show a great sense of composition and development
Los Angeles (I-Newswire) October 10, 2012 - Reunion Island pianist, songwriter, composer and vocalist Meddy Gerville is returning for his second highly anticipated tour of the U.S. His previous tour in 2011 in support of his latest CD release Fo Kronm La Vi was a smashing success, and now Meddy returns for a command encore performance for his beloved U.S. fans. In his opening show for this tour (and indeed, his only LA performance), he will be appearing at the prestigious Blue Whale live Jazz/art space in the heart of Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 9:00 PM. Playing with Meddy will be world renowned musicians Michel Alibo on bass and Emmanuel Felicite on drums. At Blue Whale Meddy will be performing tunes from his latest highly acclaimed CD along with other selected favorites from his six previous successful CD releases. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Meddy Gerville in one of his special U.S. appearances.

Meddy Gerville (www.meddygerville.com) is like a fresh summer breeze in a music world of rare exceptions. He is an exotic gem that has yet to be savored sufficiently by U.S. music listeners, yet he has been electrifying audiences the world over with his intricate and compelling synthesis of Jazz and Maloya, indigenous music of his native Reunion Island, for almost a decade. Meddy’s voice has been compared to Milton Nascimento and Al Jarreau, but these comparisons fail to capture the unique timbre and rhythmic intensity of his soulful and nuanced vocal approach. Likewise, his extraordinary compositional, pianistic and improvisational prowess is peerless in its conception and execution, all amply demonstrated on his U.S. debut CD, his seventh release worldwide, Fo Kronm La Vi.
“Meddy Gerville is a fascinating artist who is developing his own unique approach to world fusion.”
—Ralph A. Miriello, Jazz.com
Fo Kronm La Vi is a brilliant preview of what Meddy is capable of in-person, and seeing this talented, innovative performer live really brings home just how unique and engaging Meddy Gerville is.
