A major figure in modern jazz, Saturday, at Meukow.
The Pétignac musical association knows the Guyenne area well, the room of the Meukow cognac house in Cognac.
The enthusiast Gérard Fauvin came to give some pianos for concerts or competitions of the Académie musicale de Charente. For once, on Saturday, it is not classical music but jazz that will resonate.
The Pétignac estate is bringing Riccardo Del Fra, "a double bassist and composer who is an essential part of today's jazz scene, with an impeccable swing of rare elegance," describes the organizer. Inspired in all his work by Chet Baker, he is developing here the project "Moving people", which conveys a message of harmony between peoples.
Riccardo Del Fra presents himself in a quintet format, accompanied by talented young musicians: Rémi Fox (saxophone), Gabriel Gosse (guitar), Carl-Henri Morisset (piano) and Nicolas Fox (drums). The group will also give a "dedication concert" on Sunday at 4 p.m. at the Domaine de Pétignac, in Jurignac.
