Didier Burgaud Swing Orchestra

Didier Burgaud Swing Orchestra - Jazz & Swing
Left to right: Didier Sarrazin contrebasse, Yves Nahon batterie, Didier Burgaud, Pierre Kellner piano.

Accompanied by a swing trio (piano, double bass, drums) Didier Burgaud proposes an elegant jazz music that recreates the warm and cosy atmosphere of the legendary jazz clubs of the forties.

His repertoire includes evergreens, jazz standards and other lesser known tunes from the swing era.

This professional musicians play regularly in jazz clubs and festivals but also for private occasions and receptions.

Featuring: crazy bass introductions, ballads whispered softly, piano solos directly imported from famous pictures such as « Casablanca », improvisations cross-fertilized with clarinet and piano as well as baroque fugues from out of nowhere…

Many of the titles have been revamped with original ornaments, giving them that special touch.

Every tune tells a different story, offering music lovers a pallet of emotions and feelings.

Jazz critics have recognised this musical quality: French magazine « Jazzman » paid a tribute of 3 stars to the record « Fascinating Rhythm ».
