"Dark and yet luminous, nostalgic and joyful, Virginie Teychené´s voice generate a feeleing of elation. In a climate of exultation, the young singer and the musicians avoid the temptations of a grotesque imitation or on the other hand of artificial originality.
So this is a Jazz record belonging to an untimely art form rarely given media coverage to.
Here, vocal expression is deliberately cleared of all fioriture so that it can reach the essential and reveal the subtleties of the music. That is what seduces the most.
With a disarming sobriety, tutelary Jazz figures are brought to mind (composers such as Billy Strayhorn, Charles Mingus and Antonio Carlos Jobim but also improvisators: Chet Baker, Eddie Jefferson, James Moody…) and as an indirect consequence, the sketch of a self-portrait stands out, the one of a Jazz singer."
(Jean-Claude Rocailleux, trad. John Fendley)
