Black jazz from the 20's & 30's
The black jazz of the 20's and 30's is irresistible.
even a century later here are musicians that feel at home with this music. Soloists known for their instictive swing, but under the hand of Emmanuel Hussenot (creator of Orphéon Célesta), arrangements, personal additions, humour and poetry create the surprise.
And so we go from Ellington, Bechet, Morton, to Kurt Weill, to Georges Gounod carried on a fresh original wind, with a creative flair that makes us rejoice.
