Video de KIMBEROSE

 KIMBEROSE from Cannes to Nice

Kimberose recently made its Cannes la Croisette début on the rooftop terrace of the UCG, during the film festival and will be returning to the Côte d’Azur on 16/7. The 2018 Nice Jazz Festival has a superb line-up of big names with a diverse range of musical acts ranging from Gregory Porter to Orelsan and has announced three new artistes including Kimberose. The group will be performing closer to home before that, at Oloron on Saturday 30 June at 5 pm (tariff B!). To avoid disappointment don’t put off booking. More details


Video de J. OMICIL


JOWEE?.. OH YES !

Les Inrocks magazine has just published a long article about saxophonist and composer Jowee Omicil who is also a virtuoso on clarinet, flute and harmonica. Jowee Omicil darts back and forth from New York to Paris, Haiti to Montreal, likewise his music knows no borders. With his excellent backing musicians, “Let's basH” beckons you to travel through funk, Latin, Caribbean, North African, Oriental and yesteryear’s popular jazz time zones … “Let's basH” is an invitation to dance amorously (Michel Contat, of Télérama magazine).  More details



Vidéo de C. BLEY

CARLA

Carla Bley is one of the most delightfully whimsical of all the greats to have marked the history of jazz. Having embarked on an unusual musical adventure since the 60s, she is an accomplished musician, composer, conductor, arranger and pianist. Her sense of humour and style hover between splendour and comedy. Carla Bley will take us to the highpoint of intelligence, wit and beauty with her cherished dream team of Steve Swallow on bass and Andy Sheppard on saxophone on 8 July at 5 pm. More details
