Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog - Cully Jazz Festival

Marc Ribot – Guitar Shahzad Ismaily – Guitar, Bass, Electronics Ches Smith – Drums, Percussions Reunited in Cully this year, the three members of the Ceramic Dog project can best be described as the troublemakers, the unclassifiables or the exceptions of contemporary jazz. Led by guitarist Marc Ribot, the trio usually walks on stage with the same potential as a grenade that forgot to go off. Shamelessly powerful in hard rock and extreme sound, Ceramic Dog brought out Your Turn in 2003, a second album that has the merit of making all opinions agree: this band is on the verge of madness and its music, crafted for the live experience, makes absolutely no...

Chucho Valdés (Piano) The Afro Cuban Messengers /// Gaston Joya (Double Bass) / Yaroldi Abreu, (Percussion) / Dreiser Durruthy Bombalé (Batas – Vocals) / Rodney Barreto (Drums) Chucho Valdés and the Afro-Cuban Messengers invite Rachmaninoff, Bach and Miles Davis to a joyful carnival in “Border-Free”. Pianist and quartet pay homage to all the influences that make up Cuban culture: classical, mambo, hard bop and even Arab-Andalusian or Amerindian music.

Monty Alexander - The Full Monty - Saint Emilion Jazz Festival

The “Full Monty” is the perfect title for a concert in which the great Monty Alexander reveals all. The Saint-Emilion concert is his platform to present a retrospective of his work, a voyage through 50 years of jazz. But it’s not just a Monty Alexander showcase: he pays homage to the greats who inspired him or those he was fortunate to meet. From Nat King Cole to Frank Sinatra, with Louis Armstrong along the way, it’s a real jazzy jubilee!
