Do we even have to introduce this grandmaster? Philip Catherine is easily one of the most skilled jazz guitarists on the planet (so says Downbeat). He doesn’t just play music, he is music. His deceptively simple tunes are great art (that’s what Le Monde wrote).
Catherine’s signature swinging guitar playing is virtuosic without indulging in gratuitous technical demonstrations. His lyrical compositions are an ode to a pure sound with room for improvisation. Live, he shows his mastery in a tight interplay with his musicians.
Violinist Alexandre Cavaliere was discovered when he was barely twelve. The child prodigy was brought up on the swing of Django Reinhardt and has always cherished this music.
These two gentlemen share a love of swing and both played with Toots Thielemans and many others. And now they find each other for an ode to their great love: good old jazz.
