Les Rugissants - Journée Big Bands
In Partnership with and
Les Rugissants are a modern jazz tentet led by pianist and composer Grégoire Letouvet. With influences ranging from contemporary jazz to classic and contemporary music, their compositions are complex and lyrical in equal parts.
Formed at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional in Paris, Les Rugissants gradually evolved from a quintet to a tentet, in search of real musical dramaturgy, colours and orchestral movements that breathe life into the script, blurring lines between composition and improvisation to find their own collective groove.
