Philippe Saisse

Contemporary jazz keyboardist, composer and producer Philippe Saisse was born in Marseilles and raised in Paris; the son of a staff producer at CBS/Sony France, he studied piano, music theory and composition at the Paris National Conservatory, winning Boston's Berklee College of Music's prestigious Paul Winter Scholarship upon graduating in 1975. At Berklee, Saisse became the protege of vibraphonist Gary Burton, leading to a tenure playing behind Narada Michael Walden; he made his recorded debut on Al DiMeola's 1979 effort Splendido Hotel, and in addition to jazz also expanded into pop session work with appearances on David Bowie's Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), Chaka Khan's I Feel for You and the Rolling Stones' Dirty Work. Saisse also earned notice writing material for DiMeola, Al Jarreau (for whom he also co-produced the 1988 LP Heart's Horizon) and David Sanborn; he additionally served as the musical director on the Sanborn-hosted TV series Night Music. In 1988 Saisse signed to Windham Hill to release his solo debut, Valerian; it was seven years before the follow-up, Masques, appeared on Verve Forecast. Next Voyage followed in 1997, and two years later he resurfaced with Halfway Till Dawn. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Very smooth
Saisse is smooth!!! I have 2 of his cd's. 1 was a jazzed-up R kelly song "young nation"!! Smooth!!!
nice smooth, creamy sound. i like!
I'm from Seattle also. How about KPLU for jazz?? I know, I don't listen to it :)
..its really sadthe powers that be and i know who....have shut down all the jazz stations throughout the US......and replaced it with other genry stuff....... g l a d for Pandora to have it.......had it happen to me one morning awhile back when i use to live up in the Seattle area.....poo f was off the air and replaced with other stuff...too bad.....
..definitely somethin' different... . . . . b u t great to listen to.......
First time hearing this. I love it!
Ooooooooh
First time hearing him and I love his style! I'm downloading him today when I get home.
This DAM!!! Nice
Why isn't Masques included in this collection?
I have always like Philippe Saisse ever since I used play his VALERIAN CD back in the mid 80s while music director for a jazz station in Albany NY
PLEASE DO IT AGAIN,AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND THEN AGAIN JUST ONE MORE TIME. VERY COOL
COOL
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works!
Love this piece ..."Really Beautiful!!" SWEET!!
bfotsch456
Love it and yes, very talented

I purchased At Worlds Edge about a year ago, it's the only thing I listen to in my vehicle...my new fav on the CD is Topanga Moon Dance. He is so incredibly talented...m o v i n g , relaxing and inspiring!
nothing heavy to say....but HEAVY! Soulfully nice top to bottom. This cat is truly rough brother.

I am so impressed with Mr. Saisse and his trio. They send me! Absolutely love them! Each of the albums are unique, special, and moving.

I'm always amazed at how many beautiful music makers I've discovered since I started listening to this cool jazz station. Mr. Saisse and his trio make beautiful music!
please add the 1995 album call Masque by philippe (LOVE that SONG)
marygrider
Beautiful!
In a way it reminds me of breezy, sexy Brazilian music. I can tell from Valerian that he loves Bach too.
Great Musical Talent - I must add this to my home collection.
he swings with a contemporary flair. Sounds heavily influenced by Joe Sample...whi c h is not a bad thing...easy to listen to
awesome
Damn good!!!!
A Brand new flavor for me! I am taken to a heart rhythm that is powerfully mind opening. You can ride your emotions to a world of calm, cool, and clear!
cfacsone
cool
Totally LOVE this song ANY day of the week, not just Monday afternoon ;)
I bought Halfway Till Dawn when it was first released. I have been soulfully impressed with Saisse ever since. Too bad has only recorded three albums even though he records with other artists. I have been wondering why it took him six years to record The Body and Soul Sessions?
lissalou_a
Valerain album the best imho ... God Son Paris the best non-lounge trance/chill music of it's time. Still great.
denniswe48
this "girl with boticelli eyes" is beautiful music by phillippe saisse
THIS IS WHAT LOVE SOUNDS LIKE, WITH WITH MY SOUL........ . .

Lovely piano and total chill-out and relax music. I'm so glad my hubby introduced me to his music, I'm hooked.

Wonderfully relaxing and hypnotic; I love it!

......anyone who would use Boticellis' Eyes as a description in the title is an artist unto himself

this is what your brain says to your body every morning,in hopes it will respond
Man Philippe Saisse has a very unique talent with his music, it's almost like he says I know what this person likes and he sits down and writes it. Amazing.
EXCELLENT!

THIS SONG IS TALKING TO ME WHO IS THIS CAT OFF THE HOOK GOT TO HEAR MORE.
It's a real shame that this site doesn't have Masques on it. That song is gold and deserves to be heard.
Interesting that the bio from All Music guide is not only WAY out of date, but also omits one of Philippe's most amazing CDs: Storyteller. Perhaps this is because it was only released in Europe, but it is a masterpiece of jazz fusion, and is on my top 10 list of all time favorite albums.
I was fortunate enough to see Phillippe perform here live in Indianapolis . Unfortunatel y , the jazz station I had won the tickets from for the show has since shut down and is now another 'hip-hop' station, as if we really needed one more! I had a great time listening to Phillippe tell us the stories surrounding the selections he played. He is a gifted composer and performer! He puts on a really good show! I and the lovely woman I took to the show had a wonderful time!
Yes, yes, yes!!!!!!!!! !
