ROBIN McKELLE9pm - Olympe de Gouges Theater
Robin McKelle (Vocals), Shedrick Mitchell(Piano), Eric Wheeler (Bass), Charles Haynes (Drums)
Robin McKelle chooses to cover songs exclusively composed or popularized by female composers. She signs here a vibrant manifesto whose scope extends well beyond her era. From Billie Holliday to Amy Winehouse, she decontextualizes the songs from their original framework and restores them in a sensitive musical idiom that fuses jazz, soul, rhythm’n blues, blues and rock.
Brotherhood is placed under the seal of brotherhood, familial and musical. Entirely made up of new compositions, this opus activates the memory of those who preceded and inspired the Belmondo brothers, without straying into nostalgia.
CONFERENCE “Séverine Cappiello’s jazz playlist: listening and dialogues”
Subversive, joyful and delirious, jazz is a great school of freedom! Listen and journey through the titles that have marked the life of this jazz producer from Armstrong to Nina Simone, from Mahalia Jackson to Miles Davis.
