Daniel Roure saw his album « Le Temps D'un Jazz »on a jazz broadcast to more than 6 million times on Pandora Radio (USA). He made a remarkable breakthrough in the ratings of internet radios, the United States, Canada and Australia. By Jove! We're impressed! Daniel Roure has a deep voice, pleasant, well-modulated with perfect diction, the relaxation, charm. I sometimes find him accents Jean Sablon especially in the low and slow tempos; he shows, very gentle. For this record he is surrounded by great jazz musicians of the South-East of France. There is sometimes a certain perfume King Cole trio with Pioli in the role of Oscar Moore and Giacchi in that of Wesley Prince such as in "J'ai Vu" plus a discreet drummer. it scales well. A nice trombone solo on "Un Petit Bateau" kind bossa nova. All trombone solos are very good, as well as guitarist. "je lis là" which is actually an adaptation of "Rosetta" is perhaps, the best time of the disk, so swing song that fits perfectly with the group. Other pieces are as French as adaptations of standards. The song "Les Baleines Bleues »Blue has a lot of charm and quiet up. No, it makes a surprising unhappiness among Anglo-Saxon who like this "French touch" with the sound of the French bonus. The first song says "it's time for a jazz of yesteryear" That's exactly right, beautiful swing song with clever lyrics, all in a beautiful musical setting. Serge Baudot. JAZZHOT 2014

Review by Kelly O'Neil 07/2014: LE TEMPS D'UN JAZZ
Artist: Daniel Roure

Album Title:  Le Temps d'un Jazz (Azur Jazz Club Production)
Reviewers Name: Kelly O’Neil
Rating: 5 stars
Review Summary: “Le Temps d'un Jazz” honored jazz standards peppered with original compositions in the language of love.
Relying on the linguistics of music as the international language is not entirely necessary to fully appreciate Daniel Roure’s Le Temps d'un Jazz. The Marseille native has been immersed in jazz and French music his entire life. It is no surprise that his composing and performing prowess feels completely natural. Roure surrounds himself with a bevy of other talented Europeans who also share his enthusiasm and profundity for jazz. Other Marseille inhabitants include bassist Fabien Giacchi and drummer Alamel Gilles, both whom demonstrate stellar abilities to keep the strictest relaxed tempos. A huge asset to Roure’s collaboration is trombonist Francesco Castellani. The Italian born horn player has exquisite tone and is extremely lyrical and versatile on his instrument. Roure provides the vocals and piano work on the album as wells as penning half the music. His brother Jacques is the lyricist and arranger.

The opening title track, loosely translated, “Time to Jazz” immediately transports the listener to a quiet outdoor café day-dreamily sipping an espresso whilst a clove cigarette smolders in an ashtray on the table. Roure imbues his warm mature voice into the easily flowing tune. His first piano solo is bright but not flashy, nicely complimenting and dancing around the melody. Guitarist Paul Pioli plays the second solo imitating Roure’s style. “J'ai Vu” or “I Saw” features well executed noodling by the piano and guitar cleanly aligning with the walking bass.

A testament to Roure’s talents is his inclusion on the Vintage France album produced by Putumayo World Music, with the song “Les Baleines Bleues” or “The Blue Whale” featuring considerable range from both the vocals and trombone. “Un Petit Bateau” or “A Small Boat” is a pictorial song where an image is musically conjured from the opening falling whistle, like a swooping bird, to the calm clear tones of the trombone elucidating open water, to the jumping melody of the tossed little boat. The piano and vocals sing the chorus in a tight staccato and is joined by the trombone in the final recapitulation.

The Roure brothers have also creatively tried their hand at arrangements of classic American Jazz Songbook compositions. Irving Berlin’s “Cheek to Cheek” is emanated in “Déjà”. The stand up bass is finally given a solo in this number. Another early 1930’s tune “Rosetta” is reworked into “Je Lis Là” where the lively influence of swing music is apparent. Roure effortlessly scats around a cute little syncopated piano ditty. He repeats this same musical idea on the ivories in “Que Faisaient Nos Professeurs” taken from “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love”. A drum solo is heard bolstering the guitar in Henry Mancini’s “The Days of Wine and Roses” in the Roure’s reworked “Sais Tu”. Ending on a high note is “Dans Les Bois” from Duke Ellington’s 1931 hit “It Don’t Mean a Thing” featuring Roure adroitly jumping around the quick familiar melody.

Le Temps d'un Jazz is a fun work of nostalgia that holds dual affinities to both jazz and world music lovers. Daniel Roure and his compatriots are an absolute joy to listen to.
