March 1st - March 5th
Ensemble Reverso, grantee of the FACE foundation Jazz & New Music 2021 residency grant will be on tour March 1-5.
Co-led by American trombonist Ryan Keberle and French pianist Frank Woeste and accompagnied by cellist Vincent Courtois, Ensemble Reverso is the subtle fusion of jazz and classical music and was born from both artists’ deep desire to highlight the historical relevance between the two genre. Strongly inspired by composers such as Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy, they incorporated to this classical resonance a jazzy sonority and aesthetic as well as improvisation into their music. After, the release of their 2020 album “The Melodic Line”, the band benefited from the FACE Foundation Jazz & New Music 2021 residency grant.
