JazzWise Magazine writes : ” it takes just a few bars of ‘Promenade”, the opening track of pianist Igor Gehenot’s debutalbum Road Story, to realise it is the work of a rare talent who will surely number among the great names in jazz in the years to come.
His touch, his articulation, his harmonic sense, his ideas and his perfectly balance sense of time are gifts of a magnitude that occur maybe once in a generation.”When the young pianist first knocked on the door of Igloo Records, he was barely 22 years old. Now, at just 30, he is already presenting his fourth album as a leader. Igor surrounded himself with an international team, the French buglist Alex Tassel, the Luxembourg drummer Jérôme Klein and the young Swedish bassist Viktor Nyberg. An adventure that earned them the Octave for best jazz album for “Delta” in 2018.
