Happy new year to everyone! After a highly successful West Coast tour last summer, Moncef has a brand-new, ambitious album project for 2013! It’s too soon to reveal the details, but let’s just say that it will be a unique creative concept and a departure from the classic trio sound he’s explored in recent years. As for the West Coast tour, you can see extracts from Moncef’s final concert at the legendaryYoshi’s in San Francisco on his YouTube channel. Check out a behind the scenes look at Moncef rehearsing “Métissage,” or his trio performance of “Imagine,” “It’s You,” or “Sliding Shadows.” The press was unanimous in praising Moncef’s music and the tour enjoyed rare reviews by Jazz Times, Jazz Weekly, a three-part article in the L.A. Examiner (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3), and KCRW’s Rhythm Planet. Once again, we thank all of our partners who contributed to making the tour happen and all the fans who came out to support Moncef and his band!
