Marthe - Salle Fitzgerald, showcase
Marthe is a band founded after an atypical meeting between the Greek saxophone player Alexis Moutzouris and the French trumpet player Florent Briqué. The story of how two universes colluded and fuzed to create something that wants to go beyond frontiers. The band is later completed by the electric bassist Lucas Territo and the drummer Damien Bernard. The aim of their collaboration is to endorse a modern jazz that finds its origins into traditional Greek and French music.
And at the end of the day, what you have is an original, vivid, energetic and innovative music. Their new album, “Diaphonie”, has just been released, with some special guests, like Thomas de Pourquery (2017 Victoires du Jazz), Mike Ladd (winner of the 2017 Charles-Cros academy) and Geoffrey Grangé.
