::: THIERRY LANG TRIO FEAT. HUGO READ / URBAN VOICES :::
One of the good things about the Swiss Jazz Club in Cannes is the opportunity to discover new musicians who are never invited on the local scene, nor or rarely in the French summer jazz festivals... and that was the case with the Swiss pianist Thierry Lang, who nevertheless performs since many years, has recorded his first piano solo album for Blue Note, and is the artistic director of the Ollon Jazz Festival !
And he is definitely a pianist to discover, for his great compositions - in particular Heiri's Waltz dedicated to his bass player - and his technicity "mixing" classical music to his jazz...
Also discovered tonight, the amazing vocal group Urban Voices ! Their perfect vocal performance added to an original and humoristic stage act, make them a must see live ! The group is composed of two female vocalists, two male vocalists and a double bass player ! well, more likely a human being acting and sounding just like a double bass ! and they are releasing their next album "The Gang" on the TCB label.
A not to miss performance !
