"Edwige Morgen : Quelque chose dans l’air"

Ceux qui chantent du jazz en français se comptent sur les doigts d’une main (Claude Nougaro, Elisabeth Caumont, Michel Legrand). En voici une autre : Edwige Morgen. Elle chante d’ailleurs aussi, et aussi bien, en anglais (Swing Song, Start Our Romance). Elle compose intelligemment ces airs de jazz qu’elle chante comme s’il s’agissait de standards. Mais ils sont d’elle. Voix grave bien accentuée, textes qui collent aux chansons sans erreur d’accentuation comme on en entend d’habitude, sujets de chansonnettes, mais pourquoi pas, et surtout un swing impeccable. Elle se fait accompagner par des pointures du jazz, comme Jérôme Etcheberry (tp), Nicolas Peslier (g, bjo), Sylvain Glevarec (dm, cga), Patrick Bacqueville (tb, perc), voire même des invités comme Laurent De Wilde (p) ou Claude Tissendier (ts). Son pianiste Philippe Dervieux fait des prodiges, comme son contrebassiste Michel Rosciglione. Ajoutez que Laurent Guanzini (p) ou Stephane Chausse viennent sur un titre chacun et vous comprendrez pourquoi ce CD mérite un coup d’oreille. Il y a des bijoux dans ce CD (C’est pas d’ma faute si j’aime le jazz) et des impertinences salutaires (Il ne faut pas croire). De quoi jubiler.
