Trio Grande + She’s Analog
Récif · Festival Jazz à Lyon
What happens when three of the world’s most accomplished jazz musicians get together for a new trio project? Fireworks! … and an innovative, exhilarating debut album. Trio Grande is an international super trio featuring British saxophonist Will Vinson, Israeli guitarist Gilad Hekselman and American drummer Nate Wood. Together, the three musicians produce a sound as vast and varied as that of a band twice their size. The band’s debut album (with Antonio Sanchez on drums in place of Nate Wood) received international critical acclaim.
She’s Analog explores the sonic possibilities offered by a particular variation of the most classical of ensembles: the trio. Creating music collectively, the group is inspired by a slender compositional starting point, enriched by the practice of free improvisation. The group’s own language is constantly nourished by the different influences and training of the individual musicians: contemporary classical, jazz, post-rock, minimalism and electronics are all languages that interact dialectically, creating precious landscapes and textures that are always different, emotional and never abstract. The band’s debut record was released on vinyl on September 18, 2020, by Auand Records.
She’s Analog’s concert is organized as part of Better Live, a project co-financed by the European Union’s Creative Europe program.
