HUGO LIPPI

Gaya Music 2019

Line up : Hugo Lippi : guitar / Fred Nardin: piano, artistic direction / Ben Wolfe : double-bass / Donald Edwards : drums

For these twelve new titles recorded in New York, Hugo Lippi has created the ideal combo for his bohemian and elegant swing, with the french pianist Fred Nardin, the bassist from Portland Ben Wolfe and the drummer from Louisiana Donald Edwards, two virtuosos of the Lincoln Center of Wynton Marsalis. The alchemy of this quartet, always in balance, takes us into a marvelous jazz dream with a thousand colors whether in the original compositions of Lippi or the covers of standards like Manoir de mes rêves by Django Reinhardt, God Bless The Child by Billie Holiday, Humpty Dumpty by Chick Corea or Freedom Jazz Dance by Eddie Harris.
