Outdoors on the esplanade of the Citadel in Puymirol (with the possibility of withdrawing into the festival hall in case of bad weather)
During each evening (July 20, 21 and 22) 2 concerts are proposed: an OFF concert (free) at 19H Place du Maréchal Leclerc and an IN concert (paying) at 21H Esplanade de la Citadelle
OFF : Jazzmagnac
For the opening of the festival, return to the sources with Jean-Claude ESCALE leader of the group JAZZMAGNAC which had inaugurated the birth of Puym' Jazz and which returns with in its luggage the saxophonist Christophe TELLEZ which ignited the scene a few years ago. Thanks to these friendships, a choice start is assured!
IN : Les Fils Canouche
Under their experienced fingers, the wild pomp and double bass sway in tune, while the melodic volutes of a virtuoso bass clarinet cross paths with the flights of a freewheeling accordion. Exploring relentlessly the acoustic energies at the four cardinal points, Les Fils Canouche land on the rhythmic lands of a wild tango, a 5-beat waltz or a gypsy rumba. As spirited disciples of a modern Django or a resurrected Piazzolla, they blur the musical and temporal boundaries for the pure pleasure of gypsy swing.
This fertile quartet without blinkers is composed of :
Samuel Thésé on clarinets
Xavier Margogne on guitar
Maryll Abbas on accordion
Stéphane Cozic on double bass
4 musicians at the height of their art, brilliantly combining emotion and energy, elegance and virtuosity.
