Apero Jazz
7:30 pm - La Rochelle Jazz Club - Obradović-Tixier Duo
This duo evolves with a feline ease in the middle of the plural instruments that they distribute and master with class. No gratuitous fiddling: here, the effect is handled with subtlety, in a thoughtful way. One feels that everything has been carefully thought out, but the performance is very much alive, organic.

Wednesday October 12 - 8pm - La Sirène
Géraldine Laurent " Cooking
In her incessant quest for the true emotions of jazz, we hear her crossed by the souls of Rollins, Dolphy, Coltrane, Hawkins or Parker and "Cooking", because in music as in cooking, it is a team affair to measure each ingredient for the perfection so ephemeral of the final result. And because we love to hear the passing musician feeling this pleasure when he pushes the door of the club and exclaims, amazed: wow... cooking!

+ 1st part - Christian Escoudé Unit 5 "Ancrage
The guitarist Christian Escoudé offers a new repertoire completely original. The musical color is part of a melodic-harmonic jazz, illustrated by a tribute to the saxophonist Paul Desmond and by a Suite in several movements referring to his origins in Charente.

Aperitif Jazz
6:30 pm - La Rochelle Jazz Club - Thomas Mayeras Trio
Pianist very noticed and supported by the festival, Thomas Mayeras captivates by his musicality and the richness of his melodic universe. Thomas delivers a musical landscape that appeals by its taste and confirms his mastery in the conception of the art of the trio.

Thursday, October 13th - 8pm - La Sirène
Yaron Herman Solo
Pianist Yaron Herman is a great diverter, going from the most sinuous improvisation to the most colorful pop. Today, it is in solo that he will perform. He is undoubtedly one of the jazz pianists who most values melody and the emotions it generates, developing a unique art of improvisation that tells us a perfectly structured story.

+ Part 1 - MarcO Poingt Trio
MarcO Poingt, winner of the Jazz ConneXion springboard, is already an artist with recognized talent in both jazz and classical music. This diversity of modes and sounds is his trademark. For his new project, he shares the stage with two remarkable musicians who enrich his music even more by bringing new colors and textures.

In the group Drapagoa co-founded by Thomas Gaucher, the musicians Orélio Paladini, Cyril Drapé and Lévi Harvey are also composers and contribute to the repertoire. This quartet gives to listen a jazz which plunges the listener in the surprise and the discovery of numerous horizons.

Friday, October 14 - 8pm - La Sirène
Erik Truffaz cultivates more than ever a unique identity, at the confluence of jazz, hip-hop and electronic music.
His "Red Moon" is the result of a perfect alignment. In the tense lyricism of his brilliant quartet, his chiseled compositions, his infinite repetitions, his harmonic structures give goose bumps.
"Lune Rouge" is like a journey into space, towards unknown underwater worlds and uncharted peaks.

+ 1st part
Tony Paeleman Trio "The Fuse
Tony Paeleman, master of the Fender Rhodes, offers with his 3rd album as a leader a sparkling jazz fusion that links past (80s and 90s), present and future. Impossible to resist the power of this organic, groovy, indie-jazz and electro opus where the harmonic inventions fuse.

Aperitif Jazz
