El Camino de los vientos (NEW!)
New album: El Camino de los vientos (ACT, April 2020)
Featuring: Nguyên Lê, Nils Petter Molvaer, Carles Benavent, Vincent Peirani, Steve Shehan, Bijan Chemirani, Léo Ullmann, Ricardo Esteve, Isabel Julve, Abdoulaye N'Diaye, Camille Saglio, Teo&Marco&Gael Saglio Pérez
Ten years after Cello Solo, El camino de los vientos (The way of the winds) is the second inner flare along the very personal career path of Matthieu Saglio. The album vibrates from all the influences which forged the musical soul of the composer and cello-player. To give substance to this peculiar universe, Matthieu invited the musicians that were important to him, as a plain listener or as a travelling companion. El camino de los vientos is thus crossed by winds joining up from all horizons and carrying along with them major names of European jazz.

The new sound of classical musicMatthieu Saglio
composition, cello, sampler
“The figure of the French cellist Matthieu Saglio blends two factors together which works what seems to be the improbable: an indisputable ability from his classical training, to extract all forms of possible sonority from an instrument, and an opening of methods that have no stylistic or geographic limits, from which it is possible to draw a straight line that begins with Bach and reaches tango, funk, or oriental auras, without derailing his train in doing so.”

The fieriness of flamenco,
The freedom of jazz,
The elegance of classical music

“Jerez-Texas’ music is a small miracle, or a big one, depending on how you see it. It’s the type of music you would listen to all your life. It’s the feeling of being lifted away by Isabel’s sinuous voice, Matthieu’s velvet cello, Ricardo’s sol y sal guitar, Jesús’ gypsy-like percussions…Jerez-Texas’ music isn’t flamenco, or jazz, or even flamenco-jazz, but rather something else that is difficult to describe, as there are no words that successfully manage to describe a dream.”

"Fabulous album, (...) which gives sense to the term “Global Music”. I wish all the music born under the alibi of fusion would have such a laid-back approach."

Saglio / Ben Yakoub Duo
Eight strings above the MediterraneanFathi Ben Yakoub
“Beyond instrumental and interpretive virtuosity-both musicians showed complete mastery in their respective string instruments- in aesthetic and stylistic virtuosity. Yakoub and Saglio have achieved this fusion, this mix of oriental and western, of North and South, hanging a silver bridge across the Mediterranean in which both musical expressions have found themselves and joined together to become one voice, one pulse, in a unique way of expressing emotions, feelings, happiness, daydreams and most definitely, sensuality.”
