L'alto de Frank Morgan et le trio du guitariste Kenny Burrell

invité spécial Onaje Allan Gumbs
Kenny Burrell's guitar tells a story, that of a jazzman who's accompanied the greats and one who's recorded more than 60 albums. Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Billie Holiday have all declared him their favourite guitarist. And Burrell has no rivals when it comes to creating bluesy atmospheres with his subdued guitar sound.

After a visit for the 10th edition of the Festival, he's back with a trio, plus alto sax player Frank Morgan with whom he recently cut a record. Introduced as the new Charlie Parker in 1955, Morgan went through a difficult period of personal problems before making a strong comeback in 1985. His easy, tuneful phrasing makes the perfect match for Burrell's subtle style: the result is intensely serene music.

For this particular concert, the quartet will be joined by Onaje Allan Gumbs, a pianist known for his harmonic skills and his superb accompaniment.
