    Film by Stephan Talneau stephantalneau.com/ - Piano recording by Florent Chaintiou - nadanadi.de/

    I met Amine some years ago while he was playing his Fender Rhodes with the singer Antoine Villoutreix. He had a very particular way of working around the melody of the singer... placing notes to create a parralel world next to the singer's voice. Soon after I realised his own story: floating between his own compositions and improvisation band, he uses his International Jazz education to create his own voice.

    For this film we spent a day together. Speaking about music and himself, about Berlin and his position in Music. His pianio teacher Andreas Schmidt let him a precious Steinway to record two precious tracks.

    The journalist Otis Chatzistefanou from the Berline Agenda (theberlinagenda.com/) described his work like this:
    "As a soloist, or with his Duo Simourgh project, Mesnaoui is unafraid to invoke spellbinding emotional states that transcend the austere context of an improvisational avant-garde ethos.By marrying the sparse romanticism of early 20th century European modernity a la Erik Satie to the languid orientalism of a hazy halftone improvisation culled from traditional Moroccan motifs, his compositions and manner address his dual European and North African heritage in a uniquely captivating way. Daringly, he chooses to express these two aspects on the iconic yet sparse instrument that is the piano, instigating an esoteric yet honest dialogue between remote worlds."

    It’s not the first time that I am filming at The New Standard Jam Session, and it won’t be hopefully the last time. There will be a serie of several videos dedicated to the Session. Look out for the new ones, exciting one are on the way…

    THE NEW STANDARD JAM SESSION was created by Florent Chaintiou for about 7 years at the Oxident Bar, a Jazz club located in Friedrichshain. It soon became an attractive place for Musicians and Jazz lovers in town, apart from being a familiar place to meet, importance was made to the quality of the music and the openness toward all kind of music style connected to Jazz. In 2009 the session moved to the Theater Kapelle, a nice small church in the heart of Friedrichshain with a great atmosphere and acoustic. Some neighbours didn’t enjoy it that much and the Jam had to find a new place again. Since 2010 the Session takes place in DAS EDELWEISS Görlitzerstr.1-3. A nice and cosy Bar, Restaurant in Görlitzer Park in Kreuzberg, in the last remaining building of the old train station. It has a nice Lounge on the first floor for the Live Sessions, a cosy winter garden with fine Jazz, swing Dj’s and this is where it happens, every Tuesday night from 10pm to 4am.

    The idea of the New Standard Jam Session is to bring the jazz musicians of Berlin together and spread this ever living music to the listeners. Of course it is also a place for all musicians passing by Berlin to enjoy local musicians. In fact the different nationalities of the musicians present on stage shows the amazing cosmopolitanity of Berlin which makes an ever more colourful picture of the city. The Session is based on improvisation around Standards well or not so well known and is every time influenced by the musicians present that night. All forms of Jazz are here represented latin, swing, afro, modern, blues, soul, bebop… always new, surprising and sometimes magic. The master of ceremony is the great pianist LIONEL HAAS, he’s the mister swing who can play faster than his shadow. Opener and artistic director of the session, he’s having on his side on drums RICO MCCLAREN he carries the roots of jazz and is a born bluesman, and the bassist DARYL TAYLOR the king of time and has a little aim for afrojazz.
