Sa virtuosité est éblouissante, mais limiter ses qualités à celles d’un Paganini du diatonique serait réducteur. Ici comme là, ni envolées gratuites, ni effets de manches, mais une émotion pure, habitée et sensible. ### Jean-Jacques Milteau, undisputed pope of the harmonica, has a breathtaking technique and inventiveness without limits, sailing him into the most eclectic worlds: blithely blues of the country from South African rhythms to Celtic melodies.

Here as there, neither free flights nor sleeves, but a pure emotion, inhabited and sensitive.

Olivier Defays & Philippe Chagne (saxophones ténor), Philippe Petit (orgue Hammond) & Yves Nahon (batterie) Quoi de plus beau qu’un son de saxophone ténor ? Deux sons de saxophones ténors (!) qui dialoguent, s’interpellent en joutes amicales ou sonnent en chœur… et cette formule a inspiré de nombreux grands saxophonistes au cours de l’histoire du jazz. L’esthétique de Men In Bop est bien ancrée dans la tradition du jazz des années 50/60, un jazz qui privilégie le « groove » et une virtuosité ### Olivier Defays & Philippe Chagne (tenor saxophones), Philippe Petit (Hammond organ) & Yves Nahon (drums) What is more beautiful than the sound of a tenor saxophone? Two tenor saxophones (!) which converse, challenge each other to friendly jousts or play in chorus...this formula has inspired numerous great saxophonists over the course of jazz history. The aesthetic of "Men in Bop" is anchored in the jazz tradition of the 50's and 60's--jazz that favors the virtuosity and "the groove."

International Jazz Day Easy Winners Ragtime Band in JFC Jazz Club

City: St. Petersburg

04/30
Совершенно уникальный состав. В России существует великое множество коллективов, исполняющих джаз 40-х -70-х, но почти никто не обращается в своём творчестве к истокам и корням. Easy Winners - исключение из правил. Помимо оригинальности музыкального репертуара (джаз 20-х - 30-х и его истоки), "Easy Winners" выделяется самобытностью своего музыкального инструментария: вместо привычных широкой публике барабанов - стиральная доска, вместо контрабаса - уникальный самодельный инструмент. ### Absolutely unique composition. In Russia, there are a great number of bands performing jazz from the 40s to the 70s, but almost no one turns to their sources and roots in their work. Easy Winners is an exception to the rules. In addition to the originality of the musical repertoire (jazz of the 20's and 30's and its origins), "Easy Winners" stands out for the originality of their musical instruments: instead of the drums that are customary for the general public, a washboard, instead of a double bass, a unique homemade instrument.
