The personalities and skills within the Philippe Crettien Quartet facilitate the perfect collaboration to create and execute original music featured on their newest CD (released Fall 2015) November Dusk. Philippe’s writing skills have evolved as well, composing personal and interesting tunes for this CD. There is a very beautiful unison between the tenor saxophone and the upright bass on November Dusk, which has solos flowing into each other against the counter melodies of the bass. The quartet has a mixture of ages which brings a fresh sound to their music.
Philippe Crettien Quartet features Philippe Crettien tenor saxophone, Patrick Mottaz, guitar, Sean Farias, bass, Mike Connors drums.
Crettien has recorded three CD’s as a leader and was artistic director of the Toulon International jazz festival and director of the Toulon Jazz festival workshops 1991-2000. Currently, jazz band director at The Rivers School in Weston MA, and Jazz chair at The Rivers School Conservatory.
