Eric Legnini "Six Strings Under"

A pupil of Richie Beirach, a disciple of Herbie Hancock and Phineas Newborn, pianist and producer Eric Legnini is considered one of the leaders of European jazz. He has long accompanied musicians from all walks of life, from Claude Nougaro to Ibrahim Maalouf, from Didier Lockwood to Yael Naïm, a talent which has made him one of the most sought-after artists on the French music scene. Eric Legnini was discovered in Stefano Di Battista’s quintet, and throughout his career, he developed a jazz sound tinged with afro-jazz, soul, and funk rhythms.

Winner of the best jazz album in 2011 with The Vox, the first of a beautiful tryptic dedicated to the voice (Sing Twice, Waxx Up), Eric Legnini returns to a purely instrumental formula with Thomas Bramerie and Rocky Gresset. A return to the roots for one of the masters of the trio’s art, developing music in perpetual movement generated by an obsessive groove and a formidable technique. Rocky Gresset’s guitar, enriched by listening to the masters of the gypsy style (Django especially), but also Biréli Lagrène and Pat Metheny, creates an entirely original universe. The double bass of Thomas Bramerie, who has accompanied the greatest voices (Dee Dee Bridgewater, Milton Nascimento...), brings a solid base, a round and subtle sound. Finally, Eric Legnini’s keyboard, rich in his experiences, always keeps a visible link with the melody: melody, singing, it’s a leitmotiv, his musical DNA. The unique repertoire of the new trio allows Juan to promise a concert full of lyricism and, of course... groove!
