Product Notes

Eddie Bronson's New Album 'Intimate' takes you back in time to the grand elegance of antique interiors and sweet nostalgic feelings. To the good old days when love was pure and intimacy innocently intense. Days when fiery passion was concealed beneath angelic smiles. To the era of light, joy and romance. So let the music free your heart. Quotes from renowned Australian Critic John Sands in the Sydney Morning Herald: If you feel that the main casualties of modernity have been elegance and charm, allow Edouard Bronson to redress the balance. Once a tyro of Free Jazz, the illustrious saxophonist here offers a second instalment of his take of on romantic song: singing and playing accordion amid lush arrangements. Bronson's compositions mingle not only elegance and charm but also soft-focus romance, sly humour and autumnal wistfulness. His background heritage of Russian song is present, as is a love of the classical tradition, French chanson, gypsy music and, inevitably, jazz. The songs are beautifully crafted, with supple, sensuous melodies. If there are lyrics, they are supplications to a lover, including a congenial offer to share a one-night stand on Mon Amie. The words are variously in French, Russian or English,when the latter, Bronson's Russian accent only thickens the charm, while his baritone is utterly devoid of self-consciousness and brims with candour and bonhomie. His soprano saxophone slices into Intimate, and otherwise we can revel in his accordion playing on it's plush cushion of bass, drums, percussion and Daniel Pliner's graceful piano. Also John Maddox's busy bass solos and a slight rawness in the production compromise the ultimate elegance, the songs are so strong that within three listens they have become old friends-or old lovers might be more appropriate.
