This picture is from a studio session in 2011 with Reggie Washington, Jozef Dumoulin, Gene Lake & Jef Lee Johnson.
It was for Reggie's second album "Freedom".

Jammin'colorS label released its first CD in 2006 with New York bassist Reggie Washington who has played with some of the most influential artists on the music scene: Steve Coleman, Cassandra Wilson, Branford Marsalis, Meshell Ndegéocello, Roy Hargorve, Archie Shepp.

This first CD includes two live concerts from Reggie's first European tour with saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and drummer Gene Lake and from his other trio with Erwin Vann and Stéphane Galland.

Over the years, we've continued to create CDs with Reggie Washington but also with other musicians such as drummer E.J. Strickland, Cuban pianist Manuel Valera, flutist Hadar Noiberg, vocalist Paul Jost and drummer Gene Lake. We believe that all these artists have their own musical personality and deserve to be heard worldwide.

If you listen to the music of the Jammin'colorS label, you can hear many different influences: jazz, funk, hip-hop, fusion, world, folk, classical and much more.

The most important thing for Manuel Valera is to send a positive, cohesive and creating message to his audience without losing his artistic integrity.

"Live at L’Osons Jazz Club" -originally recorded for a live broadcast for France Musique- catches Manuel Valera’s new trio with Yasushi Nakamura and Mark Whitfield Jr at the height of its power doing what they do best,  highly interactive, visceral music that bridges the gap between chamber music, straight ahead jazz and avant-garde music. The recording showcases Valera’s compositions as well as fresh renditions of Monk’s "Evidence", Cole Porter’s "All of You", Jimmy Van Heusen’s "Darn That Dream" and the Cuban classic bolero by Osvaldo Farres "Tres Palabras".  All of these standards have been recorded many times but Valera re-imagines them in a very crisp and original way.

This album also features a couple live versions of compositions from Valera’s 2018 album "The Planets" (Mercury and Neptune) which was commissioned by Chamber Music America in 2017. If he had to give 5 adjectives for this new album, Manuel chooses: creative, collaborative, expressive, burning and spontaneous!
