Le QuecumBar presents:
From France: JUST FOR SWING TRIO feat. MAX BEDOUELLE on Violin
Entry Requirements: 18+
Straight come from France, Just for Swing is three brothers, three instruments (Guillaume on the double bass, joined by Valentin and Benjamin on the guitar), three personalities, but a unique sound ... ! Between Gypsy jazz and Latin melodies, since their childhood the band just keeps in mind one motto: three brothers, jazz ... and swing!
Tonight, the talented french violin soloist Max Bedouelle is invited to join the sibling: punch, swing and friendship guaranteed on stage.
BIO As children, they started playing together, mostly Rock and Classical music. But soon, playing Swing is the thing.
Aged 25, 27 and 30, their trio sound is already … 15 years old! The three brothers, self-educated and polyinstrumentalists, have made every effort to turn their passions into a job. « Self-made » musicians, their talents make sense around the music, mixing, composition, graphic design and photography. They only have one motto: three brothers, jazz ... and swing !
Serious things started in 2010, and the Bertrand brothers did not stop... Since the release of their first album « Primo », in March 2014, they traveled all over the west of France, with nearly 80 concerts each year.
Always there to surprise and amaze their audience, they are renewed today with the release of a second album: « Charivari ». It was another occasion to invite Max Bedouelle, as a violin soloist.
Born in the jam sessions of Nantes (West of France) their meeting was fate. The experience of the violinist and the brothers’ freshness immediately matched … ever since, they have shared as many stages as possible, but more than that, a true friendship was born from the music. At 37 years old, and after long classical studies and travels between electro music (Smooth, DJ Raymon Lazer) and Gypsy jazz (Daniel Givone, Eva sur Seine…), Max Bedouelle already had a solid experience. He learned alongside Florin Niculescu, but also from Tim Kliphuis with whom he now teaches every year at the « Grappelli-Django Camp » in Amsterdam. Max Bedouelle records and plays regularly on stages all over the world : in France of course, but also in Europe (Liberchies in Belgium, in Holland every year) and in Asia (Bangkok festival & University) Confortable on various repertoires and styles, but mostly influenced by jazzmen like Oscar Peterson & Stan Getz, his playing gives priority to phrasing !
