PHILIPPE LEJEUNE TRIO

SWING BLUES & BOOGIEWOOGIE

 

Philippe LeJeune (piano) - John Walcke (acoustic bass) - Tristan Patigny (drums)

 

French pianist Philippe LeJeune is a perfect example of the mixture of jazz and blues which was a particularly important strain in jazz tradition, with a reference to pianist Memphis Slim. He plays blues and boogie-woogie with a light, almost delicate touch, and weaves subtle, varied right-hand figures around the solid left-hand boogie-woogie beat.  His repertoire ranges from classic barrelhouse boogie woogie piano to Duke Ellington and Horace Silver tunes as well as those of Milt Jackson and George Gershwin. Philippe LeJeune has released six CD’s in the United States, made numerous appearances in various American jazz and blues clubs and festivals : Detroit Jazz Festival, Toledo Art Tatum Jazz Heritage Festival, Monterey Bay Blues Fest, Cincinnati Blues Festival, Marshall Boogie Gospel Jubilee..

“Hearing LeJeune is like going back in a time capsule to the days before Rhythm and Blues separated from Jazz”

The Wild Jazz Band aspires to share Jelly Roll Morton's style with its audience (he was one of the New Orleans jazz pioneers), but, most of all, it wishes to share the so-called "jungle" universe, perfectly represented by Duke Ellington. Most of the tunes were written for Big Bands and have been rearranged for this septet. So, get ready to (re)discover a multitude of sonorities with saxophones/clarinets and brasses loaded with a pile of mutes.
