Long considered one of the best jazz artists in New Orleans, the legendary guitar master Steve Masakowski settles on the Baiser Salé stage for a unique evening! In duet with Ellis Marsalis but also by working with many artists such as Alvin "Red" Tyler, Nicholas Payton or Dianne Reeves, Steve has made an unforgettable name for himself and has been elected "Best Guitarist" twice and three times " Best Contemporary Jazz Band" by Gambit and Offbeat magazines.
Having passed on his passion to his children, it was only natural for the guitarist to make it a family affair! His daughter, Sascha Masakowski, a splendid multi-style singer, internationally known for her work with New Orleans trumpeter Nicholas Payton. His son Martin Masakowski on double bass, who also leads a high-level international career. As well as his well-known longtime friend from the Baiser Salé, drummer Jeff Boudreaux, also from New Orleans and currently living in Paris. A prestigious artist, he finds his success through a wide variety of styles and creates common links between jazz, ragtime, hip-hop and rap. During his career, he shared the stage with musicians such as Terrence Blanchard, Etienne Mbappé, Mario Canonge, George Porter, Dionne Warwick, Francoise Hardy...
A mix of sophisticated modern jazz and groove music at the heart of the New Orleans atmosphere... a family and music story!
