“Give It Time” by Aneta George & Martin Milcent Trio ARTIST: Aneta George & Martin Milcent Trio TRACK : Give It Time LABEL: Moods & Modes 'When you listen with your heart, the whole world is your playground.' - this is the main message of the new studio album of Aneta George, a jazz/world music singer and composer. This project is a joint composing effort with the French pianist Martin Milcent, who brought the grooves and the harmonies to the project, matching perfectly with Aneta's melodies and lyrics, Iike a beautiful mosaic. It's a jazz quartet structure; the specific illumination that the bassist Marius Gerin and drummer Elie Akkouche bring, adds warmth and playfulness to the overall sound of the album. 'We wanted to create jazz music, with pop approach, says Martin, the vertical structure and groove is jazz, but the form of the songs is pop, short, precise and with very little soloing'. The other side of the album is odd rhythms and the Macedonian etno heritage that Aneta brings, which becomes something exotic and exciting to play for French musicians. 'In this album I wanted to sing about ordinary topics', says Aneta, 'like how's my day, my introvert side, something that fascinates me with other people, some patterns and behaviors. But through all that, my underlying message is that we need to listen with our hearts: to each other, to ourselves, to the Universe.'
