CE QU'ILS DISENT (English)....

LA PRESSE

"...expressive violinist, Nathalie Bonin."Ben Ratliff, The New York Times,

"Bonin’s violin work is also simply gorgeous. Her contributions to Odeon are many, particularly considering her interest in all kind of music from around the world. Bonin plays a nicely turned solo (on Walk this way)." Jazzitude CD Review

"The group's most interesting member, however, is violinist Nathalie Bonin, whose emotionally direct playing...", Chris Kelsey, JazzTimes

"Joined by violinist Nathalie Benin (who has a beautiful "legit" tone)". Scott Yanow, L.A. Jazz Scene

"Nathalie is a consistantly exciting, gifle performer who excels in modal improvisation, winding up her solos slowly and adding more and more rythmique intensity." Mark Chung, Strings Magazine

"Walk This Way" (not the Aerosmith song) concludes the album, a blues with a boogie bottom and a loose-limbed violin solo by Nathalie Bonin. Great stuff!" Paul de Barros, Seattle Times,

"Two beautifully intense movements of "Concierto de Aranjuez" help to sway listeners into moods of optimism and tragedy with sensitive solos from Nathalie Bonin on violin alternating with Nash's pensive saxophone lines." Paula Edelstein, All About Jazz

"And Nash's sense of humor extends beyond tangofication—to the fleet-fingered violin and clarinet-led reading of the Latin evergreen “Tico Tico” and indeed to the very inclusion of “Walk This Way,” another tune in which violinist Nathalie Bonin makes a big and joyful impression." Chris May, All About Jazz,

"Violinist Nathalie Bonin—a versatile player heard most recently on saxophonist Ted Nash’s La Espada De La Noche (Palmetto, 2005)—proves once again that a younger generation of classically-trained players is often just as comfortable in extemporaneous settings. “To Solar Piazza” opens with a passionate solo from Bonin that leads into a softer pseudo-tango referencing Astor Piazolla’s integration of 20th Century classical constructs into the folks music of his own culture."John Kelman, All About Jazz

"The string quartet has a solid solo voice in leader Nathalie Bonin's violin." Troy Collins, All About Jazz

 

APPRÉCIATION POUR ENREGISTREMENTS :

"Nathalie is the go-to violinist for all of our recordings at the Mpath production music library. (And I’m picky - I’m a violinist myself!) But she is also a fine composer who has created beautiful work as well." - Michael A Levine(Siren, Cold Case, Star Wars Detours)

"At long last, Nathalie is moving to LA. Beware other violinists... she is a phenomenal player! She recently completed a recording of the suite I prepared from the film "Drag Me To Hell" for violin and orchestra. I don’t think the Devil them-self could have done better!" -Christopher Young(Dram Me To Hell, Hell Raiser, Jennifer 8, The Gift)

"Nathalie’s violin playing is beautiful, accurate and exciting, whether playing parts I wrote or improvising over changes she gets the job done. Next time send less stems so I don’t have to struggle to decide between so many lovely performance!" - Garry Schyman(Shadow of War, Bioshock, Dante’s Inferno)

"It is always great working with NB. Having the Luxury that she had the ability to record herself saves so much time. And the recorded files come always back in great quality and taste. So good to have you now in LA !!!" - Alex Geringas(Ice Age 5, Woody Woodpecker, The Lego Ninjago Movie)

"Nathalie is at once an expressive & emotive violinist and a consummate professional. Equally adept in performance and in the nuances of contemporary recording technology & production, she's a delight to work with, bringing deep feeling and richness to each of my scores upon which she has performed." - Nathan Halpern (The Rider, The Gift, Over the Wall)

Nathalie Bonin is an amazing composer and violinist! she has made my compositions come alive in a timely way with her magnificent heightened abilities as a violinist and a producer! She truly is nothing short of amazing! - Michael Raye

Nathalie was wonderful when I needed a quick violin solo recorded, she went above and beyond and gave me multiple versions, and of course I used the one where she added her own interpretation with ornamentations that only a master violinist would come up with! Hope to work with her again soon! - George Shaw

The professionalism, dedication, musicality and passion she puts into my projects, make Nathalie a top musician with whom it is a great pleasure to collaborate! - Paul Bisson

Talent, efficacy, generosity and delivery. That’s Nathalie Bonin. - Sari Dajani
