Pierre Bertrand & Caja Negra – Centre des Bords de Marne – 16/01/2018
Winner of a 2017 Jazz Victory for “Joy”, as Best Unclassifiable Album, Pierre Bertrand inaugurates the Centre des Bords de Marne jazz season with Caja Negra, an ensemble dedicated to Latin jazz.
Directed by this saxophonist, the Caja Negra Group explores the music where the melody is queen, those of the Mediterranean and in particular flamenco.
Pierre Bertrand and Caja Negra move, enjoy life, shine, push. Outstanding moments of sharing not to be missed. What marks is the variety of approaches, this way to surprise us by all means. We are dealing with a known and recognized jazz that Pierre Bertrand refines and chisels to take us on pretty new tracks. A pleasure for the ears. While mastering, the composer and jazz saxophonist today deploys the full spectrum of his palette and offers us a rich creation in contrasts through the rock energy, orchestral colors, and a lyrical fragility on edge .. .
