OBOMANIA THE FILM 52'
Oboman… the oboe of all music.
This pseudonym attributed to him by Jazzman Glenn Ferris, Jean-Luc Fillon claims it, without any pretension, to share his passion and reveal the oboe in all its facets, in improvisation.
Thirteen albums, an original orchestral color, sparkling music, full of sensuality and beat. One of the most convincing artistic paths, a welcome change of scenery, the fruit of a subtle mixture of originality and perseverance.
A bold artist, he dares to cut his way through the heart of all that is possible, multiplying encounters, trying out and investigating original ideas. The mobility of his set, the range of colors and nuances which he displays, the brightness of his ideas all impose themselves: he exploits with great joy a whole range of ornaments and melismas.
A certain idea of contemporary jazz, that is intense, inventive and fresh; it is jazz, but not only…
“The fullness of their tone give these instruments - the oboe and the English horn - a place in jazz that double-reeded instruments rarely achieve.”
“I used to think that every eccentric was sick or abnormal. But now I believe it's normal for a man to be an eccentric ”.
