The Corea / Gadd Band will be in concert at the Opéra Garnier on 25th November 2017, for the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival! Opening act: Dhafer Youssef.


The Corea / Gadd Band

The musical collaborations of Chick Corea and Steve Gadd are legendary. These two magicians have never ceased to reinvent themselves. Since the first work of Steve Gadd on the electronic drums on Return To Forever, the two accomplices have added to the long list of their collaborations, without ever resting on their laurels: The Leprechaun, My Spanish Heart, Three Quartets and Friends… Today, and for the first time, they are co-leaders of a group, picking up on their musical history where they had left it. In this new project, they are surrounded by the “young wolves” of jazz: Lionel Loueke from Benin, highly gifted on the guitar, Steve Wilson, saxophonist and flutist from Chick’s original sextet, the grand Carlitos del Puerto on the bass and the Venezuelan master of percussion Luisito Quintero. A new album is in the works, and its release is expected in the autumn of 2017.

Come and discover these two legends and their new project on Saturday, 25th November at the Opera Garnier, during the Monte Carlo Jazz Festival 2017.


Dhafer Youssef concert à Monaco

Opening act: Dhafer Youssef “Diwan Of Beauty And Odd”

Born on 19 November 1967 in Teboulba, Dhafer Youssef is a Tunisian composer, singer and oud player. From a long line of muezzins, mastering vocal performance is in his genes. Following the outstanding success of his album Birds Requiem, which sold over 50,000 copies, the oud master, exceptional singer and prolific composer returns to the stage with his most anticipated album yet: Diwan Of Beauty And Odd, confirming him as one of the most innovative musicians of the past decade. An indefatigable explorer, in Diwan Of Beauty And Odd, Dhafer Youssef offers a seductive duality of the beautiful and the strange. He plays with the asymmetrical quality of odd meters to deliver music which is intriguingly complex, yet which remains beautiful and comprehensible because it is universal. For this project, Dhafer Youssef will perform alongside the finest musicians of the New York jazz scene:  Aaron Parks on the piano, Joe Sanders on bass and Justin Faulkner on the drums. Dhafer Youssef is performing on Saturday 25 November at Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo and promises a captivating, cohesive, unique and emotional journey which combines, as only Dhafer knows how, oriental influences and urban groove.
