Belgian jazz guitarist Jeanfrançois Prins (based in Berlin and NYC for many years) has performed all over Europe, the Americas and even Asia. Exposed to so many styles and influences, and inspired by musicians he’s met and worked with, he created a new theme: “Rio de Jazzeiro”. Much of Prins’ favorite music originated in Brazil, and his idea was to present Brazilian music with a jazzman’s taste. From Bossa Nova to Samba, from Antonio Carlos Jobim to Milton Nascimento, Ivan Lins, Tania Maria and Caetano Veloso, and including jazz repertoire as well as originals, Prins, supported by his Belgian all-stars rhythm section Bart Denolf and maestro Bruno Castellucci, with Dutch piano virtuoso Jasper Soffers as a guest, will generate joyful energy, deep grooves, and lyrical ballads.

LUZ CHABANE

LUZ CHABANE CHANTE MICHEL LEGRAND

 

Thomas Maillet (arrangements), Gilles Carlier (piano), Jens Similox-Tohon (contrebasse), Tom Bourgeois (saxophones et clarinette), Thomas Maillet (guitares), Toine Cnockaert (batterie)

 

Luz Chabane a choisi de chanter Michel Legrand car ce faisant elle articule, triangule, chose exceptionnelle, la Chanson française et donc le texte, la musique à l’écriture jazz et le cinéma.

Amoureuse du texte en général, et plume elle-même plus qu’à son tour, Luz Chabane aime à raconter des histoires, l’histoire des gens. Et quand les chansons sont écrites pour le cinéma, Dieu sait qu’elles racontent des histoires de gens.

Fan inconditionnelle du jazz, l’écriture musicale de Michel Legrand la rejoint dans ses aspirations de donner au texte français la liberté conditionnelle qu’offre la musique jazz.

Quant à l’identité cinématographique des titres de ce concert-hommage, elle a séduit d’emblée l’une de ses identités propres, celle de comédienne.

Luz Chabane s’investit corps et âme, s’immerge, se noie dans l’œuvre de Michel Legrand et, par admiration et respect pour Michel Legrand, bâtit ses interprétations avec pour unique et incontournable condition toute l’authenticité, la personnalité, la sensibilité, qui sont siennes, loin du concept très actuel de « cover » .
