International Jazz Day

David Linx "Skin in The Game" + Jean-Paul Estiévenart Quintet

Thursday 30 April | 8pm.

Unesco has proclaimed April 30 INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY, in order to recognize jazz as a universal language of freedom and creativity. For the third time, the Jazz Station and Les Lundis d´Hortense have decided to join to celebrate this special day.

David Linx "Skin in The Game"

David Linx - vocals / Gregory Privat (FR) - piano / Chris Jennings (CA) - double bass / Arnaud Dolmen (FR) - drums
« The artist who has overlooked European vocal art for over twenty years will celebrate the release of the bewitching Skin in the Game (Cristal), with partners at the top : Gregory Privat (piano) - Arnaud Dolmen (drums) - Chris Jennings (double bass) - Manu Codjia (guitar, on 5 pieces). I note Linx’s touch in 13 of 13 songs. An appetite for compositions which brings luck to the work. We welcome the album’s successful homecoming, one of its best. » LIBÉRATION

« A somewhat atypical singer in the jazz world, David Linx imposes his personality and refuses to travel the beaten track. An exquisite balance between voices and instruments : never a fight or a rivalry, but a delicate osmosis, served by refined arrangements disarmingly effective. » CITIZEN JAZZ

Jean-Paul Estiévenart Quintet

Jean-Paul Estiévenart - trumpet / Romain Pilon - guitar / Nicola Andrioli - piano / Nic Thys - double bass / Antoine Pierre - drums
This is Jean-Paul Estiévenart’s second personal project, which immerses us in a world very different from that of his trio. Here, he chose harmonic instruments (piano, guitar) to install the "sound scene" of his trumpet. As usual, his writing is deeply autobiographical, and the intense interpretation by the members of the quintet reinforces the weight of these stories told without words. Jean-Paul wants us to feel his passion, his anger, his joy. And he invited his fellow musicians on this album for one reason among others : their ability to be "in the moment" and to engage exclusively in music. Jean-Paul tells us what he knows best : himself. The titles of "Strange Bird" are a journey to the center of his life, but above all an invitation to surrender to the power of our emotions, sublimated by music.
