VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Though based in multiple musical realms, pianist Alain Mallet's ambitious Mutt Slang projects coalesce into a world that exudes 'exotic' yet ultimately feels familiar, the roots of its various components meeting somewhere deep within. Sharing the musical landscape with young musicians from Palestine, Brazil, Italy, Israel, Japan, Bulgaria, Panama, Ireland, Puerto Rico and the US, the complexity of their backgrounds - musically, ethnically, and otherwise, permeates the session, suffusing Mallet's compositions with an undeniable energy and life. "Mutt Slang is very much the result of this convergence of all the musics I love, of digging to get to their shared soul and rebuild something fresh, in order to discover where I belong and give others a chance to do the same." There are numerous musicians on this disc including special guests Anat Cohen (clarinet), Jamey Haddad (percussion), and Peter Slavov (bass), Jay Ashby (trombone), Jay Ashby (trombone) and numerous other instrumentalists and singers who shift from from song to song.
