Musical style: Soul / Groove
Tanya Michelle (Vocal), Eddy Malka (Keyboards), Thierry Fanfant (Basse), Archibald Ligonnière (Drums), Samuel Maingaud (Saxophone), Julien Duchet (Trumpet).
Tanya Michelle's voice envelops us, delights us and carries us away. She is one of those soul divas who conquer us all without exception. This magnificent voice, her sense of rhythm and her harmonic virtuosity characterize her and place her at the top of the current soul singers. Add to that an incredible, generous and spontaneous personality, and you have the perfect combination of today's great artists!
For our reunion (and before leaving for the West Indies where she sings 6 months of the year), she returns with a tribute to "Gregory Porter". Good living and human warmth guaranteed!

Ellen Birath (Vocal), Edouard Pennes (Double bass), Bastien Brison (Keyboard), David Paycha (Drums).
With her soulful voice and unique stage presence, Swedish singer and songwriter Ellen Birath is happily continuing her journey on the French jazz scene.
On September 10th she will be surrounded by the PARIS jazz SESSIONS collective, gathering the best musicians of the new Parisian jazz scene. The repertoire will include soul and jazz classics as well as jazzy adaptations of great pop songs.
With more than a hundred digital concerts in partnership with TSF Jazz radio and more than 500 live concerts in the capital, the PARIS jazz SESSIONS orchestra directed by Nunzio Azzara and Edouard Pennes provokes artistic encounters around the great jazz standards of the 30's to 50's by seducing even the most resistant of the genre.

Musical style: Jazz Swing & manouche
Jil Caplan (Vocal), Romane (Lead guitar), Jean Christophe Urbain (Lead guitar), Mathieu Chatelain (Rhythm guitar), Laurent Delaveau (Double bass).
We have come a long way since the appearance, in the middle of the 80s, of a pretty girl with an androgynous fragility. With nine studio albums, a Victoire de la musique award and 500,000 records sold, the interpreter of "Tout ce qui nous sépare" and "Nathalie Wood" has evolved, matured and grown. From Jay Alanski to Jean-Christophe Urbain via J.P. Nataf, she has surrounded herself with the best melodists and arrangers and, little by little, over the course of her albums, from "La Charmeuse de serpents" to "Derrière la porte", she has forged a true personality as a singer-songwriter. A place apart in a world of calibrated varieties. With this singular, pure, limpid, unaffected vocal style, which makes her one of the most endearing singers of our artistic heritage.
With "Imparfaite", Jil Caplan has presented us with an album at the crossroads of chanson and swing and gypsy jazz. The result of a meeting with the virtuoso guitarist Romane, heir of Django Reinhardt and eclectic composer, who knew how to sculpt his acrobatic notes on Jil's words.

LET's GROOVE was born from a common desire to live and share the party with a high quality music. That's why the 4 founding members, all from the brass section, surrounded themselves with the best musicians of Paris.
Indeed, the 12 artists who compose LET's GROOVE are all part of the great family of professional musicians who have collaborated and still accompany the biggest French and international stars such as Johnny Halliday, Michel Sardou, Charles Trenet, Gilbert Bécaud, Michel Jonasz, Eddy Mitchell, Canal + (Nulle part ailleurs), Ray Charles, Tom Jones, Barry White, Deep Purples, Julio Iglesias, Iggy Pop, etc...
Carried by a musical quality worthy of the Stars, LET's GROOVE proposes you an explosive journey around a "new" Soul/Funk/RnB repertoire. Beware, it's going to groove!

Musical style: Americana / Blues / Roots
Jesper Lindell (Lead song, Acoustic and electric guitar), Carl Lindvall (Song, digital keyboard), Rasmus Fors (Two digital keyboards and leslie), Anton Lindell (Electric bass), Simon Wilhelmsson (Drums) , Jimmy Reimers (Song, electric and acoustic guitar, fiddle, trumpet and french horn).
Jesper Lindell was the breakout star of 2017 on the Swedish music scene, when he released his debut EP. Produced by Benkt Söderberg, father and former producer of the world-renowned sister duo First Aid Kit, 'Little Less Blue' presented a collection of songs that were equal parts soul, Americana and rock. The praise from Swedish music journalists was immediate: the notable rock guru Jan Gradvall likened Jesper Lindell to a "young, agile and karate-kicking Van Morrison", and well-respected music magazine GAFFA noted that Lindell was a 'shooting star' who seemed too talented to be a product of a such a small country like Sweden.

Musical style: Blues Roots
Beppe Facchetti (Drums), Enrica Sauda (Vocal, Guitar).
Superdownhome is definitely the classiest duo of the current roots music.
Far from the usual cliché of the musical genre, "tractor and straw hat", the Italians Enrico Sauda and Beppe Facchetti put instead a particular care to wear three-piece suits and elegant leather shoes, in contrast with their rural music, and a certain punk spirit that emanates from their stage performances. Fortunately, Superdownhome's trademark doesn't stop with the look.

Musical style: Folk/blues/bluegrass
Mathis Haug (Guitar/Vocal), Benoit Nogaret (Guitar), Olivier Lalauze (Double bass), Aurore Voilqué (Violin), Simon Shuffle Boyer (Drums).
With this new project, Mathis Haug & Benoit Nogaret revisit in the studio the universe of Doc Watson, a legendary musician from North Carolina who died in 2012. A tribute E.P to this musician too little known on this side of the Atlantic ... Guitarist, singer, producer, Mathis Haug is present on the European scenes for over 20 years. He has recorded 5 solo albums for the Dixiefrog and Nueva Onda labels as well as a self-produced EP in Memphis. He has collaborated with artists such as Oum, Pura Fé, JJ Milteau, Eric Bibb, Big Daddy Wilson as a composer, musician and producer... He discovered Doc Watson at the age of 15, through the learning of " Finger Picking " and the book " La Guitare à Dadi " he then decided to tackle the famous " Deep River Blues ", masterpiece of Doc's career.
Benoit Nogaret is a guitarist who has been influenced by American music since he was very young. Coming from a family of musicians, he learns the guitar encouraged by his father, and becomes thanks to his unique phrasing a very coveted musician on stage or in studio. A beautiful journey in perspective!

After having shared the stage with emblematic artists, Jean-Philippe Fanfant and his team lead us into the epic of a life, of his life. He opens the access to a universe without barriers. Here, barriers no longer exist. He insufflates within the public a wind of freedom which oscillates between bewitching ballads and frenzied rhythms. The show adapts itself to deliver a unique experience to a conquered public.

Musical style :Jazz Pop
Michaël Lecoq (Piano, keyboards, vocals), Hadrien Feraud (Bass), Jerry Léonide (Piano, keyboards), Ralph Lavital (Guitar), Yoann Schmidt (Drums), Tanya Michelle (Vocals), Agyei Osei (Vocals)
Like a great restaurant with five star chefs of international renown, 5-ISH is the sum of five great musicians with rich backgrounds and numerous collaborations, brought together by their common influences, from Stevie Wonder and Sting to Prince and Phil Collins, via Weather Report, Steely Dan or Donny Hathaway, but also George Duke, Earth Wind and Fire and Madonna.
If each one composes alone, it is collectively that 5-ISH puts in music the personal universes, inviting if necessary singers or horns, the song format not excluding the improvisation. It is the subtle balance between the different talents that gives this music its particular taste.
For this exceptional concert, they invite two exceptional singers: Tanya Michelle, magnificent soul diva and Agyei Oseil, emblematic singer of Gospel music!

Musical style: Singing jazz
Cyrille Aimée (vocals, looper), Dave Torkanowsky (piano), Tiss Rodriguez (drums), Lex Warshawsky (double bass).
A rising star in the galaxy of female jazz singers. The singer Cyrille Aimée wears her name well. This Frenchwoman of Dominican descent cultivates jazz as a source of happiness. She was noticed at the Montreux Festival and at the Thelonious Monk and Sarah Vaughan competitions.
Her stay in the cradle of the genre, New Orleans, and her detour through Stephen Sondheim's musical affirmed her art; her playful voice, her versatility, as well as an elegant touch of folk and pop, give her an incredible charm.
She began singing on the streets of Europe and has since performed for audiences at the world's most prestigious jazz festivals, from the intimate fireside sing-alongs of her native France to Broadway, and the most formidable of audiences, such as New York's famed Apollo Theatre. Among her many awards, she has won the International Vocal Jazz Competition at the Montreux Festival and the Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition.

Phil Fernandez (guitar and vocals), Paco Lefty Hand (guitar and vocals), Lamine Guerfi (bass), Marc Schaeller (harmonica), Jessie Lee (vocals), Léna Woods (vocals), Fabien Saussaye (keyboards), Stéphane Miñana Ripoll (drums)
The band Big Dez was founded in 1996 by guitarist Phil Fernandez. Together, they spent most of their time practicing in a shack in the Paris suburbs where they played a repertoire of English and American blues covers. Reinforced by Lamine Guerfi (bass), Marc Schaeller (harmonica), Archibald Ligonnière (drums) and Rodolphe Dumont (guitar), the combo scoured the bars of Paris and its suburbs for a few years and then traveled to the United States (Chicago, Austin, St Louis) where they made solid friendships with local musicians. Under the impulse of Phil Fernandez, the band started to compose and recorded its first album, Sail On Blues, in Austin Texas in 2003.
Four others will follow : Night After Night (Austin Texas 2004), You Can Smile (Jamestown MO, 2007), Late Live "taken" on various European concerts in 2009, Lazy Star (Anjou, France, 2010) and Wet Paint (Anjou, France, 2012). In February 2009 the band, sponsored by Blues Sur Seine, goes to represent France in Memphis Tennessee for the International Blues Challenge.
