Barcelona Musician Christophe Goze Releases a Mix of Jazz & Lounge Music with Project “Soul To Soul”
Available Now on Bandcamp!
Christophe: I would not describe myself as a jazz musician, or world or even chill out. My influences have always been very wide and I never liked the idea of being stuck in one genre. I’m more like a musical / digital nomad who likes to freely experiment the moment as it comes. Depending where my mind has been travelling and what influences me at the time.
Having said that Jazz has always been a big part of my life and my guitar playing as definitely been influenced by it. I attempted Jazz school as a music student and I did practice (and still do) the art of Jazz improvisation. I’ve always been fascinated by the colours and sound of Jazz and as a guitarist by the technicality of this music.
As a producer, I’m miles away from Jazz. I get my technics and inspiration from 80’s pop and even 70’s progressive rock influences. But as a guitarist I’m very much influenced by Blues and artists such as Pat Metheny or George Benson.
The mix of the two sounds like what I have been calling the “Jazzy Lounge” sounds.
