In Germany he became well known especially when working with Renaud Garcia Fons.The trombonist Denis Leloup graduated from the Conservatoire de Paris with a first prize. He is a member of the National Jazz Orchestra and performed with musicians like Martial Solal, Michel Legrand Big Band, Michel Petrucciani, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Henri Salvador.Christophe Marguet played together with Barney Wilen, Anouar Brahem, Paolo Fresu, John Tchicai. For his first album he was awarded the “Django d’Or“.
The accordeon virtuoso Venitucci is playing on an instrument which has exclusively been designed for him and which is nearly making an orchestral approach possible. He is perfect at all nuances of sound. His unusual trio is making music full of sensuality and passion. In doing so the melody is like a golden thread through complex improvisations – melodically, harmoniously and rhythmically.
