Émile Parisien is, at his 36 years of age, one of the leading renovators of European jazz. He is a musician of broad technical training, who takes his inspiration both from Igor Stravinsky and from John Coltrane, lending a certain expressionist slant to his compositions. He has already won some of the major awards given in France to jazz artists: the Django Reinhardt Award in 2012 and the Victoires du Jazz award in 2014 and 2017, the latter precisely for the album Sfumato.
