    HADRIEN FERAUD WITH CHRISTOPHE RAYMOND & TONY RAYMOND.

    "UP SEX" (Don't ask me what it means)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vSWShXTOTE

    A very bebop-"ish" composition and a very strong performance by Hadrien.

    And

    a lyrical side of Hadrien in the following opus:
    "COMO PARADIS" (hadrien feraud)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yzFd6L6a9c

    Those two different compositions clearly show the absurdness of stereotyping Hadrien Feraud by some of his "not-likers".

    In your opinion, how is he being stereotyped?

    "He's playing too many notes without any "feel" or any style requirement".
    "Just showing off his superb technique without any regard to space/rests."
    "Always too loud".
    "Too many notes crammed"
    "Hadrien cannot groove", etc...

    I like his playing, so please keep the links coming, but neither of those links prove this man can groove and he is stuffing a lot of notes into a little space...

    I think Hadrien's bass part in the bebop-ish "up-sex" piece is more than appropriate for that kind of style.

    Do you really think that Hadrien played "too many notes" in "Como Paradis", or you just don't like his development of the material ?


    From my previous postings:

    "Here is one more video of Hadrien Feraud with Paco Sery Group Live at Duc des Lombards.

    I agree. I liked "Up Sex" and he did an excellent job covering that style. In fact, I think for that fast be bop kind of line, no one would be better.

    For the second song, I cant say the same. He had a couple of interesting phrases, but so much of that solo was just fast linear runs that it just sounds the same. It always just seems, at least to me, like he is trying to impress the audience with speed. There is no portrayal of "self"; we never learn anything new about him. I think he is very much like Jeff Berlin in that regard.

    "...he is very much like Jeff Berlin in that regard." - what a diplomatically refined answer.
    (Hadrien has a completely different tone, articulation, dynamics, and phrasing than Jeff Berlin.)

    Let's check another video that show (in my personal opinion) a different side of Hadrien.

    Thank you for those! I liked his playing in all three!
    The solo in the first one was really good. He has a few moments of blantant display of technique, but it was at a "bassday" type of event and understandable.

    The second one was really great. I would almost say Anthony Jackson esque! He fit and wove in the song, still showing technique, but never at the sacrifice of the song. He even had a couple of the Matt Garrison four finger flurries, and they didnt sound out of place.

    The third one was like a doppelganger tribal tech. If anything, my only complaint is in the miking of the drums, and that you couldnt here borlai's stick work.

    I could get into Feraud with more examples like this.

    The trio with Borlai is monstrous! They would give Tribal Tech (eventhough there is no guitar) and Weather Report(eventhough its just a trio) both a run for their money. I absolutely loved Feraud' s solo in "Matthew Garrison".
