Anouar Brahem Quartet
For nearly forty years and with a rich discography of 11 albums released by ECM Records, Anouar Brahem has never ceased to challenge the Arab musical tradition of which his oud is the emblem, by confronting it with modern jazz as well as with the harmonic sophistication of other ancestral Eastern cultures.
Today, based on years of shared experiences, he undertakes the adventure of a new project: his Quartet created in 2009 for the recording of The Astounding Eyes of Rita, thus proposing for the first time to revisit his own territories through a repertoire mixing to some usual compositions of the group, pieces borrowed from older albums (Madar, Thimar, Astrakan Café, Le Voyage de Sahar) and more recent ones too (Blue Maqams).
His 11 albums have all been acclaimed by the public and the international critics (among them Astrakan Café, Thimar, Le Pas du Chat Noir, Blue Maqams etc.), and the success of his concerts with jazz figures (Jan Garbarek, Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette and others) confirm his place as one of the most captivating and inspiring artists in the world of instrumental music.
Richard Galliano New York Tango Trio
"The jazz approach of the New Tango as well as the New Musette one, has always been for me an evidence. Jazz, Musette, Tango feed on the same ingredients, relationship to the dance, strong melodies, precise and researched harmonies. And the most important thing remains the style (dixit Astor Piazzolla).
In the presence of Sébastien Giniaux (guitar and cello) and Diego Imbert (double bass), we will approach this New Tango and New Musette repertoire with a jazzistic approach, playing at each concert in a totally free way, sometimes far from the score but never from the composer's soul. Richard Galliano.
Richard Galliano arrived in Paris in 1975 and met Claude Nougaro, whose friend, accordionist and conductor he would become until 1983. The second decisive meeting took place in 1980, with the Argentinean composer and bandoneonist Astor Piazzolla. Astor will strongly encourage him to create the French "New Musette", as he himself had previously invented the Argentine "New Tango". He collaborated with an impressive number of prestigious artists and musicians: Chet Baker, Eddy Louiss, Ron Carter, Wynton Marsalis, Charlie Haden, Gary Burton, Michel Portal, Toots Thielemans, Kurt Elling, for jazz, Serge Reggiani, Claude Nougaro, Barbara, Juliette Greco, Georges Moustaki, Charles Aznavour, Serge Gainsbourg, for the French song.
