Theo Ceccaldi & Guests: Improv Jazz Session
Revelation of the year (Franck Ténot prize) at Victoires de la Musique 2017, elected French Musician of 2016 and French Revelation of 2014 by Jazz Magazine, violinist Théo Ceccaldi surely figures as one of the most singular voices of the new European Jazz scene.
Fantastic, virtuoso, lyrical, funny and moving: each of his creations is carved like velvet, prepared as if for the big day and punctuated by incandescent ardour.
His music might sound anarchic, but is actually an extremely intelligently developed rollercoaster of moods, dynamic curve and abrupt breaks, crowned with confident improvisation. The dizzying variety projects he creates have taken him from psychedelic punk jazz with “FREAKS” to restyling ballroom dance with pianist Roberto Negro.
His thirst for new encounters and musical discoveries has led him to travel to Addis to explore Ethiopia’s sonic scape. This improv session by Theo featuring special guests promises an offbeat night!
