Acoustic trio / solo (today) My intention, in acoustic trio, is to approach a new sound and to create so a link between my experienceof classic scene and that more recent of my precede quartet Jazz of the world. Take up with my Bayan (classic accordion) while creating a dialogue World-Jazz with the saxophone and the percussions enriched my conception of the accordion and my creation. Indeed, the very grave basses of the keyboard left hand of Bayan, its profound tone and its multiple stamps allow a sound universe in trio which can replace the intervention of a bass player. So, to ally the musical requirement to the pleasure of the scene(stage) is a constant and exciting challenge. Diego Fano (saxophone and clarinet) and Yann Pajean (percussions), companions(journeymen) of creation and scene(stage) participate magnificently by their big talent in this artistic collection. I thus have the pleasure to propose you JACQUES PELLARIN ACOUSTIC TRIO for a friendly concert with a program of crossed and colored personal compositions, an invitation in the journey, the music served by a really very original formation.
