Alex Stuart Quartet: Aftermath
The critically acclaimed, Paris-based guitarist Alex Stuart returns to his home-town to release his fourth album, Aftermath. This time he brings his French band, which features a stellar cast of some of Paris’s finest jazz musicians. Between them they have performed with many jazz and world music greats, including Chucho Valdes, Pharoah Sanders, Tony Allen, Etienne Mbappé, Guillaume Perret and Mamani Keita.
Stuart has been based in France since 2005 and has since established himself there as a unique musical voice. He won the prestigious 'Jazz à Juan Révélation' prize in 2011, has released three critically acclaimed albums there and has performed with his group in top festivals and venues around the world. Since his arrival he has built upon his ANU musical foundations and expanded his horizons through performances and studies within Paris’s rich and varied music cultures.
Aftermath’s title track was Alex’s first composition following the November 2015 attacks in Paris. It was triggered by that terrible event, but inspired in particular by Paris’s defiant return to life in its aftermath.
