Christophe Wallemme describes this effort as a "wink at the great standards of American jazz," a laudable objective but an affirmation that seems intended to confuse the listener. The explicit musical references on Start "So Many Ways…" point instead to Antonio Carlos Jobim and Miles Davis' Bitches Brew rather than "Body and Soul" or "My Funny Valentine." No matter.
The achievement of Namaste—and it is a genuine achievement—is also the achievement of Miles Davis's In a Silent Way (Columbia, 1969): namely, providing room to breathe in a crowded room of musicians—soloists all, not a big band. (On Miles's subsequent Bitches Brew (Columbia, 1969), in contrast, a crowded room of musicians was happy to sound like a hot and tumultuous marketplace.) Despite the carefully-crafted compositions and arrangements, it's that sumptuous but spacious sound fabric that is most remarkable about this record.
D’un père Français et d’une mère Mauricienne, Christophe Wallemme après de longs séjours à l’étranger (3 ans au Liban, 4 ans en Inde), aborde la musique à l’age de 15 ans. Né à Paris, il commence en optant pour la guitare avant de se diriger vers la contrebasse (après avoir entendu Scott Lafaro auprès de Bill Evans). Christophe Wallemme fait rapidement ses premières armes dans les clubs parisiens aux coté de Walter Davis junior, Ted Curson, René Urtreger, Maxim Saury, et remporte en 1988 un Prix de soliste au concours de la Défense.
