KNEEBODY | Jazz à La Villette 2014

If I had to try to describe Kneebody‘s music in a few words, I would be in trouble, apparently with no leader, their sonic world defies conventions of any of the genres the band approaches. I might risk some words though: electricity, telepathy, eclecticism, complexity, textures, colours, electronics, dimension, intensity… too many words to succeed in phrasing my thoughts about them!

Ben Wendel – alto sax  Shane Endsley – trumpet Kaveh Rastegar – bass Adam Benjamin – fender rhodes Nate Wood – drums

BAPTISTE TROTIGNON – BOJAN Z || Jazz à La Villette 2012

Two pianos, a great concert, Baptiste Trotignon and Bojan Z both confirming their status of jazz pianists.

Archie Shepp & Melvin Van Peebles & The Heliocentrics at JAZZ à la VILLETTE September 9, 2015

The Heliocentrics, a British collective, gravitating around Sun Ra’s heritage, travel between generations and genres. For the concert, they gather two symbols of the Afro-american culture, Archie Shepp, one of the greatest saxophonists of the Great Black Music, and Melvin Van Peebles, cineast and pioneer of the Blaxpoitation, a movement engaged in giving black people the first roleplays in the movies.

The concert can be watched now on the Web until February 2nd, 2016.
