65 years... 65 years this year that the American Leonard Bernstein gave us his most famous work "West Side Story". For the occasion, the Baiser Salé invites you to celebrate this sixty-fifth anniversary with the legend André Ceccarelli, two Italian jazzmen, one of the best French double bassists, accompanied by François Constantin.
It all began when the drummer, still a teenager, discovered West Side Story at the cinema. The aesthetics of the film, with its New York colours, never left him and eventually became the source of his masterpiece. West Side Story is just further proof of his overwhelming swing and incredible speed.
André Ceccarelli is a legend! His fame has spread far beyond the borders of France: a career in the United States with Chick Corea in 1979, a tour with Dee Dee Bridgewater in 1987 or his Trio Sud with Sylvain Luc and Jean-Marc Jafet... Dédé Ceccarelli has recorded more than 1,000 albums (Stan Getz, Charles Aznavour, Claude Nougaro, Brad Mehldau, Tina Turner...)
The club appearance of this project is such an important event: it will certainly leave its mark on the walls of the Baiser Salé!
