Baiju Bhatt & Red Sun - Showcase Salle Fitzgerald
Baiju Bhatt, violin / Mark Priore, piano / Valentin Conus, saxophones / Noé Berne, electric bass / Paul Berne, drums.
One foot in the East and one foot in the West, the violinist Baiju Bhatt achieves with his second record Eastern Sonata a daring mix between jazz-rock and Indian music, tradition and modernity. Surounded by the transalpine quintet "Red Sun", an alchemical band where the different sounds of each blend in perfect harmony, Baiju erases borders and mixes cultures in a great multicoloured, virtuoso and harmonious fireworks display.
He succeeds in building an exemplary, sincere and profound musical crossbreeding that's caracteristic of his style. An inspired play with a rythmic placement, which also is romantic and aerial at the same time.
