Root Down! | Lewis Floyd Henry
Friday 17th, January
7:00pm - 11:00pm
Pianist Joachim Caffonnette, a leading figure of the young Belgian jazz scene, joins forces with one of Paris’ tightest rhythm sections to give birth to a symbiotic new trio dedicated to Caffonnette’s melodic and powerful compositions. They present an album entitled « Vers l’azur noir » (Towards The Black Azure - Neuklang Records - Germany) dedicated to all castaways and to the human intelligence that will leap to life so that hatred and stupidity will run out steam.
For the first time, the band will tour the UK, playing Caffonnette’s originals as well as some covers from both the jazz and pop-rock repertoire. The eclecticism of this piano trio combo will lead the audience along hard swinging moments, melancholic times and great lyricism all glued together with a smart sense of interplay. Not to be missed !
