Mathias Lévy : violin      
Jean Philippe Viret : double bass               
Sebastien Giniaux : guitar, cello

He roamed the world, was awarded the grand Prix Stéphane Grappelli, joined many projects in as many different styles; he composed for the theatre and movies, and today Mathias Lévy pays tribute to Stéphane Grappelli. With the master’s violin, offering his talented and audacious new vision of jazz violin tradition. To accompany him, Jean-Philippe Viret, who once played double bass with Grappelli and Sebastien Giniaux, a master of manouche guitar and cello player. Together they will transcend and deconstruct in an off-beat way the pathsto a limitless, colourful palette of sounds.

Three great jazzmen are meeting to offer you an original and gripping performance: Biréli Lagrène and his eerily intuitive style; Stochelo Rosenberg, all emotion and eloquent vibrato; William Brunard’s swing and groove. This string trio was brought together for the occasion, the better to serve music. Their wonderful repertoire, a mix of standards and original compositions will go to your head.
