Album Description

"Old Souls Carnival" is the most accomplished Medline album so far, presenting his new direction in composition and his multi instrumentalist approach. The project is driven by a strong spiritual background with a deep 70's soul jazz fusion influence, raised into a movie soundtrack like dimension. Each piece reveals a facet of Medline's music, origins, tastes and character. Playing with shamanic and exotic harmonies, hybridized with distorded psych funk sound and solidely pulsed by live played drum patterns and awesome unique beats. The natural flows of his expression speaks deeply and truely to the senses, traducing 6 monthes of gathering emotions, traducing feelings, during meditative recordings sessions on the world evolution and reality. The entire album was composed, produced, mixed and mastered by Medline at the family's house, in Messac, offering a perfect immersion in his mental universe. The fabulous and mysterious hand made drawings of Stéphane Carricondo, are the perfect traduction of Medline's mestized artwork, sealling many years of a rich collaboration. Rich with a wide variety of colors and influences, channeled by Medline's own hands, this first 12" record released on his label, My Bags, lives up to expectation. The French-Chilean producer always works outside of boundaries and styles frames, and with this "Old Souls Carnival" Lp shows that extraordinary projects, shaking the actual music codes, can be expected from him for years to come.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
