From October 2nd to 5th: La Rochelle Jazz Festival - Jazz between 2 Tours
This 2019 edition will invite different styles to happen. On the jazz side, the virtuoso pianist Jacky Terrasson will give us the premiere of his new album as for the drummer Jean-My Truong he will pay tribute to Michel Pettrucciani. Blues side, the guitarist Mike Wheeler will come from Chicago for a unique concert in the pure tradition of this incorruptible city. On the swing side, we propose to go back in time for a trip in the frenetic atmosphere of the jazz clubs of the 3s, between Paris and Harlem with the Hot Swing Sextet. On the "indisputably classy" side of jazz, pop and cinema, Fred Pallem and the Rite of the Tympan will perform the soundtrack of a film where Ornette Coleman infiltrates the world of Ennio Morricone, Bernard Hermann will mingle with saturated colors of the electric Miles, Lalo Schifrin will make the wedding with Fela. Eclectic, open and festive, the festival gives you an appointment to write together the ranges of this 21st year. The entire Entre les Deux Tours team dedicates this new edition to Didier Lockwood.
October 9th: Duo Della - Concert
Endowed with a remarkable complicity borrowed from energy and generosity, Sandrine Lefebvre, cellist, and Béatrice Morisco, classical guitarist, form an exceptional duet. They will take us on a "musical path" through the music of the East, the Spanish and Brazilian music. The program also works by Albeniz, Boutros ... and, according to their custom, a final with surprises!
