Theater of improvised and generous evenings where the whole Paris of all jazz meets, the high club of the street of Lombards does not count any more the moments of magic, meetings and discoveries which will have marked these 30 years! François Constantin, as supple as a wild cat, with a velvet paw or a lumberjack's paw on his percussions, touches us, moves us, makes us laugh...
This Monday, July 17, it is Gretchen Parlato, American singer and arranger, who is honored by François Constantin. On a background of hypnotic grooves, Gretchen Parlato is at the crossroads of the sensual and the spiritual. With her album "Flor" she won the award for best vocal album of the year. With her Latin approach to jazz she has played and collaborated with artists like Lionel Loueke, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. To do so, the percussionist surrounds himself with a 100% female cast, mainly from the CMDL! Malou Oheix, singer and soloist, who was recently seen with Sylvain Le Ray, the group Meropp, or as a special guest in Christophe Wallemme's trio or in the trio Charlier/Sourisse/Winsberg ! Nina Gat, the refreshing and sunny young pianist well known at the Baiser Salé, who likes to make jamming her playground; the double bass player Léna Aubert and Ananda Brandão, French-Brazilian drummer and singer, she multiplies projects and never ceases to be noticed!
A concert set and then it's time for the jam where the best musicians of the moment and the jammers parade to enjoy this unique moment where time remains in suspense...
