This year the godfather is Mr. Richard Galliano.

Couleurs Jazz, partner of the event for several years, comes back in 2018 with not only a booth to welcome music lovers and musicians, but a real ephemeral Jazz Club, a “mini” festival, not by its number of participants, since about fifty musicians in 22 Jazz bands will occur during the 3 days, but concerts in short format: (30 to 40 minutes) with the possibility for the public to approach the musicians as close as possible and to buy the albums and have them autographed.

A convivial moment, and extremely festive.

Within the Couleurs Jazz Club will also be present two independent labels among the most innovative:

After fourteen albums published in twenty years, Thierry Maillard realizes the work of his life, with the creation of this exceptional big band, which synthesizes all his influences and his various musical experiences, in a great melodic, harmonic and rhythmic whirlwind, for the pleasure of all, and pursuing happiness, of course!

A music that is both demanding and playful for a permanent fireworks where the beauty of the melodies is carried by a relentless volcanic groove. The major work of a musician as endearing as inspiring! Rich and dense compositions, with many colors and contrasts. A terribly architectured music, with a stack of magical and secret drawers, and beautiful Russian dolls that fit into each other. An obvious passion for the world of Frank Zappa who has integrated all these influences in his own music, for Bartok too, with his famous concerto for orchestra. An immoderate love for the harmonious melodies and audacities of Bill Evans and Chick Corea, and then an important album that served as a catalyst for “Pursuit Of Happiness”, it is about “Wide Angles” that Michael Brecker published in 2003 and where he was magnificently surrounded by an orchestra of wood, brass, and strings (arranged by Gil Goldstein).
