Jazz Guitarist Marc Antoine Releases New CD, Modern Times
Published August 16, 2005

Guitarist Marc Antoine says that, with the release of his new Modern Times album, he is prepared to take modern jazz to the next level. “There comes a time in the life of an artist when you feel in a certain space and you just have to do it. No thinking, just do it. This is that time for me,” said the Rendezvous Entertainment recording artist about his seventh solo album. The album was produced with dance music producer-club DJ David Ferraro in his home studio in Madrid, Spain. 

Modern Times incorporates “clubby dance grooves, funky hip hop beats, and pulsating electronic rhythms that envelop or enhance the jazz, classical and blues influenced tracks,” said the artist. Antoine collaborated on the writing of nine new compositions in addition to covering the samba romancer, “La Belle Dame Sans Regrets,” originally recorded by Sting. It’s the first vocal number by Antoine, who croons sensually in French.

The Paris-born Antoine seasons his recordings with the cultures he encounters in his world travels. Latin and African percussion, flamenco guitar riffs, European nuances, and devotional Indian chants lend color, texture, spirit and sophistication to the tracks.  Antoine has fluently expanded his dialect on the album. Known for his flamenco acoustic guitar bravura, Antoine often communicates through a cool-toned electric jazz guitar. 

Since mid-June, Antoine has constantly been on the road. He’s toured the concert trail in major U.S. cities with sax star Dave Koz, R&B vocalist Jeffrey Osborne and cutting-edge saxophonist Praful as part of the “Dave Koz & Friends” summer trek.
