JOHN GREAVES / VINCENT COURTOIS (UK/FR)
John Greaves – voice
Vincent Courtois – cello
One of the most out-of-this-world performances you’ll ever witness. Or at least this is our opinion.
An extraordinary meeting between two great musicians of our days: John Greaves (”Henry Cow”, ”National Health”, ”Soft Heap”; he played, among others, with Peter Blegvad, Robert Wyatt or Louis Sclavis…) & Vincent Courtois, one of the most fruitful and imaginative artists on the contemporary jazz scene. With a classical formation, Courtois discovered in parallel jazz and improvised music …and mastered them both. He recorded with Michel Petrucciani, Dave Holland, Louis Sclavis etc.
John Greaves and Vincent Courtois on the same stage means the rare opportunity to be part of a very particular musical-poetic-human universe. Considering the current, anxious and alarming state of the world, that’s basically a necessity disguised as a gift that you can make for yourselves.
