Making a bold statement in the worlds of art or music demands the use of tools and mediums that strike the observer immediately. Painters like Henri Matisse have used gouache paint, a heavy opaque watercolor, for its strong, dynamic color and consistency for a striking visual effect.

Highly regarded pianist and composer Jacky Terrasson has decided to mirror these pronounced effects with a well selected assemblage of musical tools – songs and musicians – to appear on his new album Gouache (Sunnyside-Universal France, 2013). The recording’s canvas shows a profound workmanship and understanding of the world of modern jazz and innovative music.


Jackie Terrasson's "Gouache" was reviewed in the July 2013 issue of DownBeat!
