Following the celebrated success of 2022’s ‘Entre eux deux’, where Gardot joined forces with French-born, composer and pianist Philippe Powell (son of Baden Powell) for her first-ever studio album in duo, the pair are back with ‘Entre eux deux: The Paris Sessions’, an EP of four handpicked songs from the album, set with brand-new luscious string arrangements. ‘Entre eux deux: The Paris Sessions’ is released on Friday 9th June via Decca Records, available here.

There are four songs chosen for the EP by Powell and Gardot including the captivating ‘This Foolish Heart Could Love You’ described by Jazzwise as a “standard-in-the-making”, ‘Perhaps You’ll Wonder Why’, ‘Darling Fare Thee Well’  and ‘Samba Em Prelúdio’ a song that pays tribute to and revisits the legacy of Powell’s father (Brazilian composer/guitarist Baden Powell), proudly carrying the Franco-Brazilian torch lit so many years ago between celebrated artists Pierre Barouh, Vinicius de Moraes, and Baden Powell. The arrangements feel even more like “instant classics” thanks to the expertise of Alan Broadbent, renowned pianist, composer, and arranger, who has worked with some of the biggest names in jazz, including Charlie Haden, Diana Krall, and Natalie Cole. This stunning quartet lineup features members of the National Chamber Orchestra of Armenia (violinists Astghik Vardanyan and Gohar Papoyan and violist Astghik Gazhoyan) and Armenian-born musician and producer Artyom Manukyan on cello. The ensemble was also featured on Gardot’s most recent ‘Entre eux deux’ tour in 2022.
