Jazz in Vaux – season 2022-2023


Friday October 21, 2022 at 9 p.m., Equinoxe room
Red Beans

The oldest French jazz group, Les Haricots Rouges have been touring the world since 1963. Rehearsals in a small apartment on rue du Puit de l’Ermite in Paris seem a long way off after a 50-year career and nearly 5,000 concerts. They opened for Louis Armstrong, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Georges Brassens or Brel and rubbed shoulders with the greatest of music: BB King, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Nelson, Sam Lee…

Passionate and facetious musicians, great numbers, visual as well as musical, Les Haricots Rouges revisit New Orleans jazz in an explosive, funny and moving show.

3 For Swing
“Play and sing Nat King Cole”

The three musicians who make up 3 For Swing participate generously in the activity of Jazz in France and in Europe. 3 For Swing was formed with the intention of reviving the repertoire of the legendary trio of pianist-crooner Nat “King” Cole. A daring bet, as the work of this group has been unanimously praised by historians and jazz critics!

Combining high technicality, swing, the naturalness of the original ensemble is not given to everyone, far from it… Christophe Davot, Jacques Schneck and Laurent Vanhée, with a good dose of passion and concern for a job well done, succeeded in beyond all expectation.

Jacques Schnek: piano / Christophe Davot: guitar, vocals / Laurent Vanhée: double bass

Six for Six

Created in 2019, the sextet Six for Six plays a repertoire of original compositions and arrangements. After an EP in 2021, the group released their first album “Frog’s Performance” in May 2022. This Toulouse band offers a fair balance between written music and improvisation, preparation and spontaneity, traditionalism and avant-garde.

There are multiple colors: that of swing, harmonization, counterpoint, orchestral effects. All these things inherent to the big band, but here reduced to the format of a sextet!

Malo Evrard: drums / Adrien Dumont: trumpet, flugelhorn / Sandro Torsiello: tenor and soprano saxophones / Igor Ławrynowicz: trombone / Etienne Manchon: piano / George Storey: double bass

“Soary Quartet” – Amaneciendo
Outside the walls in Saint-Palais-sur-Mer

Soary quartet is the meeting of singer Antonela Lucia and guitarist Cyril Salvagnac. One is an author, the other a composer. Together, they create a jazzy universe, songs with Latin colors that draw their energy from rhythms from Africa. With the support of Fabrice Camboulive on double bass or electric bass and Laurent Meyer on percussion, they stretch an imaginary musical bridge between the shores of the Mediterranean and Brazil.

Stan Noubard Pasha Quartet

Stan Noubard Pacha is one of the best representatives of the blues guitar in France: elected three times best French blues guitarist in 1999, 2000 and 2003 by the France Blues trophies and best blues accompanist in 1999.

Driven by a joyful swing and a definitive feeling, the quartet distills an urban blues inspired by Chicago blues with influences from Buddy Guy, BB King, Freddy King, Albert King, T Bone Walker, Albert Collins.

Kaily Quartet

Kaïly or “the power” of music in the Joola language, a dialect of Casamance in the south of Senegal. The power of Jazz, the power to share, to transmit, to bring together through music. The Kaïly quartet offers personal compositions mixing jazz and afro sounds. Kaïly never ceases to integrate rhythms from the mbalax (set of rhythms of Senegalese music) fused with modern jazz. These sounds invite you to travel from Nantes to Dakar, from one edge of the ocean to the other, all tinged with emotions that revive musical and family memories.

Abdourahmane Cissé: piano, synth / Rémy Hervo: bass, guitar / Sven Michel: drums / Elora Antolin: vocals
