French Stories - A Concert by Cédric Hanriot
Pianist/composer Cédric Hanriot, one of the hottest French jazz pianists on the scene today, is coming to Singapore for a unique concert. His latest album, "French Stories", was recorded with such luminaries as Terri Lyne Carrington (drummer with Herbie Hancock) and John Patitucci (bass player with Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea). The innovative "French Stories" project features originals alongside well known French songs from artists like Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg or Edith Piaf as well as Hanriot’s original compositions. Cédric has taken these songs and turned them into more contemporary styles such as Jazz, Hip Hop, Afro and World Music.
With the new worldwide release of "French Stories", Cédric will be performing in a trio format of Piano/Fender Rhodes/Laptop, Bass (Electric and Upright), and Drums/Vocals. With such heavyweight sidemen alongside his obvious prodigious talents, his "French Stories" are sure to blow the audience away.
