Nathan Mollet trio - Showcase Espace Gould
Nathan Mollet, piano, compositions / Elvire Jouve, drums / Dominique Mollet, double bass & bass
Immersed in the musical universe of his father since childhood, Nathan very quickly became interested in Jazz music. Enrolled in an improvisation workshop at the age of 7, he discovered the standards and at the same time quickly tried his hand at composition: he first created short loops that have been enriched over time. It was alongside his father that he experimented with his interpretations of standards and his own compositions.
During workshops, Jams Sessions and private lessons, Nathan felt the need to set up his own project.
It was quite naturally his father whom he chose on the double bass and he contacted Elvire, a drummer from the improvisation workshops with whom he had been able to forge a certain complicity.
Thus in December 2018, the Nathan Mollet Trio began its first rehearsals.
In February 2019, the trio spent a day in a recording studio to produce a mock-up with a good sound quality, which enabled them to be selected at the Vannes competition and to win the jury prize at the European competition in Avignon in August 2019.
