New album

Out now on all digital platform

“‘Past Forward’ succeeds in pushing further the adventure of Grand Pianoramax: there is no repetition in this album, but instead the feeling of an exploration that continues.”

–Le Matin Dimanche (CH)

“Under the pop attire, one can find these brilliantly insane pulsations, this singular jazz crossing the limits of style from afar and looking into the future.”

–La Liberté (CH)

“A resolutely modern approach.”

–Elle (CH)

“Grand Pianoramax is making a big comeback with a new album that is both coming back to its roots as well as a fascinating new step in the band’s discography.”

–Les Oreilles Curieuses (FR)

“The guest appearances by Gaspard Sommer and Angelo Powers give the project a Neo-soul dimension tinged with Hip hop, a cleverly mixed cross-genre attesting of a protean evolution in constant mutation.”

–Benzine Magazine (FR)

“An album not to be missed!”

–La Gazette de paris (FR)
