Out of Focus is the new solo album from Jean-Philippe Collard-Neven, one of the most surprising pianists on the scene today. A singular blend of his own compositions, improvisations and covers of Tom Jobim and Henri Mancini.
A musician that is almost impossible to define, Jean-Philippe Collard-Neven has developed a singular style that draws on different musical genres: the classical and contemporary repertoires, jazz, improvisation, chanson française, electro, as well as his work for theatre, dance and silent movies.
The new solo album is called Out of Focus. The analogy is with photography, of course, referring to music whose outlines are not those we think, whose background tells a completely different story.
The tracks are approached as though they were a pretext for a musical and contemplative excursion. There is an unfinished feel to many of the melodies, harmonies that are stripped back, grooves that slowly melt into silence...
Alongside improvisations and covers of Jobim and Mancini, Jean-Philippe Collard-Neven offers up – like a confession – an introspective, rarefied style. Elements of his classical background are as clear as all the musical adventures he has shared with major players from Belgian and international jazzmen.

brooding and preoccupied or perhaps merely pensive, yet an exquisite subtlety hints at a vibrant maturity to come - Jazz Views

...finds both the cultured jazz of Keith Jarrett and the radical demands of the most demanding of minimalists, all this sprinkled with a restrained lyricism playing with the effects of surprise - Challenge Records

古典から現代的なレパートリー、ジャズ、即興、シャンソン、フランス音楽、電子音楽、演劇からダンス、無声映画にいたるまで、異なる音楽ジャンルに特異なスタイルと大きな足跡を残してきたベルギーのピアニスト・作曲家のJean-Philippe Collard-Nevenが、ロングセラーを記録した前作「Between the Lines」に続く新作ソロピアノアルバム「Out Of Focus」を発表します。アルバムはそのタイトルからも類推される通り、彼自身も個展を開く程に熱中する写真からインスピレーションを受けています。私たちの考える音楽そのもののアウトラインをずらすこと、全く異なった物語を背景から捉えることの大切さ、焦点の外に生みだされる空間、ボケの美しさに主眼を置いたという本作。生命のダンスを感じるような躍動的な即興のバラッド、まばらなメロディーや予測できずに変化するハーモニーは時に明滅する光のようにゆっくりと沈黙の中に溶け、空間に美しい余韻を残します。ジョビンとマンシーニの即興と秀逸な解釈と並んで、ジャン=フィリップ・コラール・ネベンは、まるで告白をするかのように内省的で深遠なスタイルの楽曲を提供しています。ソロピアノの新たな扉を開けるような充実の12曲。
