Thomas Laffont group - Salle Fitzgerald, showcase
from the Institut Musical de Formation Professionnelle (IMFP) and from the
Darius Milhaud Academy, the composer and bassist Thomas Laffont finds his inspiration
in the big names in the modern jazz industry (Miles Davis, Erik Truffaz, Snarky
Puppy...). The electric bass, his favorite instrument, is at the core of his
creation process. The “fusion” term, used to describe his music, evokes a genre
without frontiers, somewhere between esthetics, giving room to improvisation.
Composed by Arthur Billès (drum), Cyril Benhamou (piano),
Jules Lapébie (guitar), the Thomas Laffont Group merges and flirts with the
frontier between genres. An electrifying pop jazz! “The House by the Sea”, the
first album of the band, will be released on February 2019.
