September 12, 2018: Carte Blanche for Laurent Blondiau @ Marni Jazz Festival
Laurent Blondiau,the co-artistic director of MetX and leader of the jazz collective Mâäk, gets a ‘Carte Blanche’ for the Jazz Festival at Théâtre Marni this year!
As an artist with no limits and a passionate innovator, he grabs the ‘carte blanche’ offered to him with both hands and initiates new encounters.
He is joined by Gabor Gado, a highly unusual guitarist who plays with magnificent depth and emotion and takes the music of his native Hungary to new horizons. And by the French bass player Sébastien Boisseau as well as Samuel Ber, the young drummer of the Mâäk collective.
A meeting of closely-knit musicians performing a mix of compositions created for the occasion, complemented by rearranged numbers of the duo.
This music is both formally constructed and brimming over with essential freedom !
True to tradition, the trumpeter also promises us some famous surprise guests – so prepare yourselves for fireworks on stage.
