In 2001, “Here & Now”, the debut album of B.F.G. (Bex, Ferris & Goubert) was the first pro-duction of naïve Jazz and a great success, for the album of this rather unusual trio (organ, trom-bone, drums) was awarded the highest honors: « Victoires de la Musique », « Grand Prix de L’Académie Charles Cros », « FFFF » in Télérama, « Selection » in Le Monde, « Disque d’émoi » in Jazz Magazine… In 2013, recording this legend-ary band “live” became a necessity and an urgen-cy. It took place with a completely new repertoire at Sunset Club, where they met twelve years ago. After “Here & Now”, discover “Now or Never”, their new album, which reflects their essential joy of playing together. Long live B.F.G.!
“I like this trio so much, to play, talk, exchange, with Glenn and Simon. This trio is like no other. I’m just very happy that we can offer music that has been recorded live, unique to one night. Feeling spontane-ous energy exchanges, sharing emotions with the audience. Music to live, “Now or Never”!”
-- Emmanuel Bex
““Now or Never” for B.F.G. to be reunited? Maybe, but Now is the Time for this very special trio to rejoin forces and create their original brand of “Now or Never” musicality full of in your face vitality. It took time, but this new CD is the deserving follow up to the “Here and Now” CD. This “Now or Never” CD proves that patience is a rewarding virtue. I am very happy that we are back together.”
-- Glenn Ferris
“B.F.G. is a trio, but it’s also a long story. A story of different music, but equally – and this is important—of long silences - the kinds that teach you a lot, that make you think and mature. In this story, “Now or Never”, is a new chapter, a new testimony of our life filled with jazz. We hope to have been as present as our audience was for these two Parisian nights. The three of us have said: It’s “Now or Never.”
