We have interviewed Julien Brunetaud at Jazz Cat Club in Ascona for the presentation of his record Playground.


How did you choose the tracks for Playground?
I have chosen according to my feelings and by inspiring to what I was influenced by, therefore Professor Longhair, Dr. John and yet by adding some compositions that had this mood.
How do you work to your compositions?
A melody comes to my mind, with some ideas, some words, some phrases… then I add a harmony I choose by playing and playing again, some very simple arrangement ideas as instrumentation, according to style.
And how do you choose the musicians who work with you?
Of course for their musical qualities, for their groove, their ability to simply play blues by remaining open minded, for their capability of loving jazz and New Orleans funk for example and, last but not least, for their human qualities.
Do you have some kind of advice for young musicians wishing to become professionals?
To be appreciated by playing again and again, and to travel with your instrument by listening and absorbing as much music you love as possible, as it is by feeding on what is around you that you can create beautiful things.
Music and internet: is it a gift or a curse?
It’s a gift, because you can post your music and your clip in two clicks, but also a curse because you can access to all music with no charge, but I’d say: “Why not?”, because at the end… this isn’t definitely bugging me a lot.
Do you have a dream you wish to come true?
I would like to be surrounded by a good crew, composed by manager/tour manager/distributor, so that I could play my compositions in very good conditions.
Which are your next projects?
To make my dream come true! A finely released new album, signed with the name “Julliver”, which will be by new composition project.
