Madeliene & Salomon

Madeleine & Salomon is the meeting of two artists with well-established musical visions: the vocalist and flutist Clotilde (last album In Extremis #5 American NPR annual Jazz critics poll 2013 – Debut album category, US CMJ Week 1300 Top Adds #5 – 2013, #5 ‘Best Jazz’ music category 2011 by the SundayTime ) and the pianist Alexandre Saada (Malia, Matha Reeves & the Vandellas…).

Long-term friends, they discovered during a tour of Asia in 2014 that they shared a common musical aesthetic and decided to form the duo Madeleine & Salomon. They took advantage of the Melbourne Recital Centre (Australia) invitation in June 2015 to rethink the American Songbook in their original fashion to record their first album A Woman’s Journey. This homage to American female protest songstresses is enriched on stage by free improvisations inspired by dreamlike short films.

Since its release in France, it is receiving great applauses from the media. It has been elected "Best album 2016" by the French National Radio France Musique and by Jazzmagazine and Citizenjazz. It has also been praised in the national newspapers Liberation, reviewed in the national magazine Causette and by CultureBox-FranceTV, praised one of the 10 summer albums by the InRocks, "Pick of the week" on FIP - Radio France radio show, SHOCK in Jazzmagazine, ESSENTIAL in JazzNews, ELECTED CitizenJazz, YES! Culture Jazz, TT Télérama Sortir, and it is regularly played on national radios such as NOVA, France Musique, RFI…

This enthusiasm is now spreading outside France. In the UK, they have been "Pick of the week" in the SundayTimes and interviewed and reviewed by Kevin Legendre in the UK Magazine Echoes. In Germany, they got a 4stars review in FonoForum and an interview by Karl Lippegaus on the national German radio WDR4. Beginning of January, they have been selected by the Israeli journalist Dubi Lenz, as part of his "discoveries" of the Winter Jazz Festival in NYC, and recently the album has been played on the American radios such as WMCB 107.9 and KUSP along side Kendrick Lamar, Kamazi Washington.
