Come Back Special
“2012 Comeback Special” is a jazz and improvised music project devoted to Elvis Presley. In 1968, the peak of his fame waning, Elvis made a notorious televised comeback appearance in order to reassert his status as the King of Rock and Roll. Competing with the new sound of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, Elvis went back to the roots of his music in African-American blues, Southern country and Christian gospel. Paying tribute to Elvis’s 1968 gesture, the specific “comeback” staged in this project seeks to uncover the different musical genres and influences lurking behind the notorious rock’n’roll and pop icon. Through an ironic and deconstructive approach of jazz and free improvisation, we sought to examine the various roots of Elvis’s music, to emphasize their heterogeneity and to find new ways of their synthesis. This is why we built our music around contrasts between the familiar and the unfamiliar, the expected and the unknown, counterpoising the ordinary structure of the vocal and musical themes with a playful improvisation with musical forms.
