GILDA SOLVE AND MICHEL PASTRE IN QUINTET
Organised by the Rotary Club of Sens
Gilda Solve is an American singer born in San Francisco whose parents were opera singers. She began studying classical and modern music at a very young age and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree. In addition to singing, she also learned piano, dance and theatre. After having sung on the music of Duke Ellington, Miles Davis or Chick Corea she leads us back to the great jazz standards. She now proposes a more modern harmonic and rhythmic approach to the colours of California.
She now lives in France and received the revelation prize at the Juan-les-Pins international competition twenty years ago.
Her impeccable vocal technique, her communicative energy shared with the audience and her natural charm are all very exciting.
She is accompanied by one of the best French tenor saxophonists, the talented Michel Pastre, a great admirer of Count Basie. He has created his own groups and his abundant discography has often won awards, whether he performs in a Big Band or a Quintet.
The quintet is completed by the much appreciated pianist Philippe Martel, who needs no introduction, the rhythm section being provided by the complete and accomplished double bass player Frédéric Debraine as well as by the drummer but also trumpet player and singer of American and Vietnamese origin Jean-Pierre Derouard, who performs in trio as well as in big band or in symphonic orchestra
