    - Lakecia Benjamin “Phoenix”
    All fire, all flame, the saxophonist with bop vocabulary and funk roots spotted a few years ago as one of the most promising voices in New York, has established herself as one of the best torchbearers of current jazz. His dazzling career can be explained above all by his playing, combining technical virtuosity and expressive versatility, playful but delicate lyricism and passionate outpourings, which made him noticed in the jazz world but also by Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys and Missy Elliott. After her ardent homage to the spiritual jazz of Alice and John Coltrane, Lakecia Benjamin released a new album in 2023, Phoenix, where her intimate tragedies skilfully collide with the contemporary African-American experience. She dialogues in particular with the activist Angela Davis, the poet Sonia Sanchez and the memory of Toni Morrisson, in the service of a statement which aims to be radically emancipatory, resilient and feminist, which she comes to defend within a powerful quartet.
    Lakecia Benjamin: saxophone, Zaccal Curtis: piano, Ivan Taylor: double bass, EJ Strickland: drums
