« 12/08/2014 : Jean-Jacques Avenel »

JEAN-JACQUES AVENEL
16 juin 1948 – 12 août 2014

Immense contrebassiste, magnifique musicien, Jean-Jacques Avenel fait parti du cercle très fermé des très grands jazzmen. Il fut également une très belle personne.
Jean-Jacques vient donc de perdre le combat qu’il menait depuis plusieurs années contre la maladie, essayant chaque fois qu’il le pouvait, de rependre sa contrebasse et de remonter sur scène ; depuis presque deux ans, il n’en avait plus la force. «ROGUEART» est particulièrement fier que Jean-Jacques ait contribué à deux de ses productions, KUNTU et RESURGENCE.

Jean-Jacques Avenel manquera au monde de la musique.

ROY CAMPBELL Jr.
Los Angeles September 29th 1952 – New York, January 9th 2014

“When sound has feet, legs, lungs and wings, it is called music.
If music became a human being, that person would be called Roy Campbell Jr.”.
It is what William Parker wrote in the introduction to Roy interview in William's book CONVERSATION

Roy was a great musician and a great person.
I will miss his big hugs every time we met. We will all miss his music.

YUSEF LATEEF
Passed away on Monday December 23rd 2013 at 93

A very sad news.
It is definitely not possible to summarize in few words what Yusef Lateef brought to the music. He was a giant, musically even more than physically. His amazingly long carrier, more than 70 years, always at the top, allowed him to meet all his peers and to be an active actor of the evolution of jazz (although he rejected this word to name his music).
«ROGUEART» is very proud to have released the astonishing ROOTS RUN DEEP, where his simple and profound words meet his unique sound.

His music and his wisdom will always be with us.

« 14/12/2009 : What is Jazz? Spanish police knows! »

Monday December 7th 2009, Siguenza Jazz Festival, Spain; LARRY OCHS SAX & DRUMMING CORE European tour last gig: a spectator called the police because he considered the music was not "jazz"; incredibly, the complaint was duly registered and will be passed on to a judge!
William Parker's statement immediately comes in mind: "How dare we spend so much valuable energy answering such questions as "What is Jazz"".
Whatever the label we put on the music, we are very pleased and proud to have released recently the latest and great LARRY OCHS SAX & DRUMMING CORE's album STONE SHIFT
