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. “ Album Sound of Philadelphia - Jacques Pellarin trio - 2009

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
