Hugh Coltman - Amphithéâtre, concert grand public
Godfather of this 2nd edition
After touring through all Europe for five years and releasing seven albums with the “Hoax” blues band, Hugh Coltman, acclaimed by the press for his unique voice, decided to take a step back as his renown started to overflow the edge of the inner circle. It's the meeting with the pianist Eric Legnini, during the “One Shot Not” show hosted by Manu Katché, that made him fall into the jazz universe. Hugh Coltman quickly found a way to express every single bit of his talent in this music that yet already has so many Names and Legends. After his participation to “Jazz à Juan” back in 2016 and his nomination as “Voice of the Year” at the “2017 Victoires du Jazz” (due to “Shadows”, recorded as a tribute to Nat King Cole), Hugh Coltman is back with “Who's Happy”, his new album recored in New Orleans .
