"Following Love" the album

An elegant and sparkling jazz.

From Joey Starr to Michy Green via Hubert-Felix Thiéfaine, Faby Médina navigates between music, sings alongside many French or international artists and is nourished by all these encounters.

First a chorister, then a soloist, today an author, composer and performer, the female voice of Mr. Claude Bolling's Big Band for 15 years, takes off. Faby dares to compose between swing and be-bop by adding a pinch of pop in the arrangements, a touch of soul in the voice and sometimes a ray of sunshine in the rhythms that speak to us of his roots. Through his texts, Faby tells us about the intoxication of his new encounters, of those that impact us and change everything, the void left by a loved one or the joy of a birth. Moments of life crossed with poetry. Originals, therefore, but also covers of great standards such as Someone to watch over me by George Gershwin, Early autumn by Woody Herman and a nod to pop with Blackbird by the Beatles composed in homage to the fight of black Americans for their rights. civic.

Between sweetness and intensity, with a refined voice, Faby writes his own story with “Following Love” a very personal first album, a new flavor for vocal jazz.
