Listening to this album like discovering a great vinyl record you never knew existed. Except it's from today. Original compositions. Familiar, but fresh. Old, but new.

The "Mat Najean Jazz Band" was born in January 2019 in Paris. Surrounded by excellent swing musicians from the Paris jazz scene, Mathieu Najean wants to play his compositions. Through his music, always rooted in swing and blues, he wants to explore the different styles of swing: a rag like Jelly Roll Morton, a fantasy like Duke Ellington, a blues like Count Basie...
