8 p.m .: BENDIGEDIG - Gary BRUNTON, François JEANNEAU, Andrea MICHELUTTI
A brand new trio based on the latest compositions by British bassist Gary Brunton. “Bendigedig” (“wonderful” in Welsh) brings together legendary French saxophonist François Jeanneau and Italian drummer Andrea Michelutti. The repertoire is inspired by the musical culture of Wales (where Gary lived) and the great saxophone / double bass / drums trios of jazz history: Sonny Rollins, Steve Lacy, John Coltrane.
9 p.m .: BACK IN TUNISIA - DIAGONAL ENSEMBLE BY Jean-Christophe CHOLET
The Diagonal ensemble, carried by the pianist, composer and conductor Jean-Christophe Cholet, has been exploring for more than fifteen years the heritage of popular music, whether it is folklore from the Alps. (Suite Alpestre), Anglo-Saxon music (English Sounds), Eastern European music (Slavonic Tone), up to repertoires devoted to French music at the beginning of the 20th century (French Touch, 2007 and Le Tombeau de Poulenc, 2015). The first part of "Nights in Tunisia" was created in May 2011. The composition work was shared with two other members of the orchestra, the trombonist Geoffroy de Masure (heard in particular alongside Steve Coleman and Aka Moon ) and violinist Jasser Haj Youssef, a musician performing in the most prestigious Arab music orchestras and a musicologist specializing in researching the similarities between improvisation in jazz and traditional Arab music. Eight years later, the Diagonal ensemble offers a "volume 2", Back in Tunisia, which is, like the first, a festive, extremely colorful, demanding program, full of energy, emotions and sharing!
