American composer and lyricist, author of some of the most famous musicals of the American scene created on Broadway, Cole Porter found success thanks to his subtle and witty lyrics often playing on innuendo, and his music with forms and with complex rhythms. Many of his creations are among the most famous of the great American repertoire of song and great jazz standards. Very early on, his melodies were taken up by crooners and jazz musicians. Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Charlie Parker are among them. The recent successful returns of 'Kiss Me Kate' and 'Anything Goes' confirm that Cole Porter's successful cocktail of musical and jazz remains as tasty as ever.

Originally from the Bordeaux region, Simon graduated from the Pôle Supérieur de Paris in 2015. Sideman and leader, he loves the stage above all. In 2017 he released a first album FLYING WOLF ”with a good presence in the press. In March 2021, the trio album "LIGHT BLUE" devoted to a repertoire of songs that has won unanimous support in the profession. If jazz is a way of experiencing music in the moment, Simon Chivallon is its total incarnation, and each solo demonstrates it by its spontaneity and frankness. There is no room for pretense: what plays out is what comes, a sensitivity that expresses itself, a talent that breathes and seeks to touch the listener.

At the Baiser Salé, we take advantage of the summer to spend free and colorful musical evenings at the Festival Estival de Jam. More than a simple concert, the jam is an opportunity to discover outstanding musicians, to see them having fun improvising together. It is the feeling of participating in a unique moment.
