Renaud GARCIA-FONS : 5 string double bass
David VENITUCCI : Accordion
Stephan CARACCI : Vibes, Drums

It was perhaps inevitable that one day, the intrepid musical explorer Renaud Garcia-Fons would come back his native Paris, cosmopolitan capital, cultural crossroads for artists of all nationalities to which city the Franco-Catalan bassist dedicates his new album La vie devant soi. The title is from the book by Ajar/Gary, which tells of “the extraordinary bond between a little Arab orphan and a Jewish mama”.
For this project Garcia-Fons has brought together David Venitucci (accordion) and Stephen Caracci (vibes and percussion) accomplices in innovation and experimentation on the margins of jazz. The underlying idea, essential to the Garcia-Fons credo, being “to create a kind of chamber music, to play together, searching for nuances and sound textures from an acoustic base”.
Known for his mastery of flamenco, his musical expeditions to India and the East, his love for the Mediterranean basin, Renaud Garcia-Fons felt the need to go elsewhere. Here he’s following the chronology of a multi-faceted city from the 19th. Century French School to Parisian Jazz. “If I only made Mediterranean or oriental music, I’d be limiting myself; I’ve got more than that in my luggage. I was listening to Satie and Debussy long before I heard Munir Bashir…”
And what we get are eleven discreet Parisian scenes. A nose-tapping tip of the hat to Prévert, Doisneau, Michel Simon. From the busy,bustling Montmartre en Courant to the achingly moving Le long de la Seine. Groove and poetry, nostalgia and pure cheek….an ode to humanity
