louis billette quintet
"Le Temps d'Une Vie develops a soaring, airy repertoire...
And compositions that are both subtle and full of character."
Franpi Barriaux, Citizen Jazz
"Louis Billette makes us penetrate in a tormented prettiness,
which summons emotion without falling into sentimentality."
Jean-Charles Doukhan, TSF Jazz
"Louis Billette Quintet addresses a nod as much to
the great masters of classical music and swing as to painting."
Reto Andreoli, Le Courrier
Poetic without being meditative,
the album unfolds like a life,
in its repetitions and surprises,
its affirmations and doubts.
A quest for an inner song,
a setting in music of lived experiences,
but also a return to the roots
of his musical vocation,
between the circularity of hip-hop
and the lyricism of Coltrane.

Influenced by the free spirit and creative force
of his schizophrenic brother,
Louis Billette devotes himself
to music with a special eye.
He brings together musicians of great sensitivity
in the service of a modern music,
with ancient roots and resolutely acoustic.

Music is not only a part of Louis' life,
but the way for him to connect
with something out there
that cannot be reached through
rational thought and experience.
Immersion is a contemplative
and deep first album, but also fresh.
