Here's NATURAL, Claudia Pereira and Francis Demange's album. Issued in decembre 2011, it's the result of a five years collaboration of both musicians who, influenced by jazz, pleasantly flirt with the Soul and Gospel.

From Jazz to Bossa-nova, from immortal Ballads to Pop music, the themes are played most freely.

Claudia Peireira belongs to this generation of singers who, coming to music through Pop, Funk or Gospel, move the Jazz standards horizon back. A voice timbre which makes you shudder, a communicative stage energie, a Zen mood are all these qualities which make that Claudia is a worthy interpreter of great standards in the tradition of Dee De Bridgewater, Aretha Franklin or Billie Holiday.

Francis Demange is a complete musician, at the same time a pianist and a flutist, a soloist and an accompanist, an arranger and a composer. After working with Marc Thomas, Tony Di Caprio, Paul Davies, Peter Giron, Jacky Samson...... After several movie musics, we were able to listen to him those last years with Bertrand Auger Quintet (metamorphosis album - 2003), then with his own Quartet (Living Standard album - 2009), and now a duet with Claudia Pereira. So now on he plays on three albums from the Jim A. music label catalogue.
