    Grand Pianoramax is a "supergroup" consisting of three strong personalities, each possessing outstanding mastery of their craft: the acute lyricism of Leo Tardin's keyboards, the immediate intimacy of Black Cracker's wild poetry and the powerful, razor-sharp and pugnacious drums of Dom Burkhalter. The virtues of this rare alloy illuminate each of their concerts, which have taken place all around the globe. Indeed, Grand Pianoramax did a 10-city tour across the USA and performed at major festivals worldwide, including Tokyo Jazz Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon in New York, Akbank Jazz Festival in Istanbul, Jazz à Vienne, and Paléo Festival in Nyon to name a few.

    With already four albums and two vinyls under their belt, the supergroup founded by Geneva-based pianist Leo Tardin releases their new EP "Big Easy" this Spring, their debut collaboration with Mental Groove Records.

    Staying true to their instantly recognizable signature sound at the crossroads of post-jazz, art rock and hip-hop, "Big Easy" is a new step in the ambitious artistic path of the trio. As opposed to their previous opus, this new release is characterized by a more DIY and less polished production, a better reflection of the spontaneity shining during the trio’s live performances.

    Recorded in Zürich at Dom Burkhalter’s studio / anti-atomic bunker, the four tracks take a "more laid-back, less dark, resolutely dancing and funky" approach says Leo Tardin. This is apparent on the warm and nonchalant groove of the opener "Big Easy", which gives its title to the EP, and the catchy repetitive pattern of "Lovely Day" which follows. As for the playful rhythms of "Lost and Found", they generate a good and vibrant mood. "A Little More" closes the EP as an epic ballad torn between the virtuoso embellishments of the keyboard and the intense poetry of Black Cracker, whose words hit here with a rare emotion.
