LINE-UP: FRED NARDIN: piano / MAXIME FOUGÈRES: guitar / SAMUEL HUBERT: bass
Fred Nardin simply defines this project “as an echo of the great trios of my dreams, such as those of Nat King Cole and Oscar Peterson.” The project lives up to the challenge. This is a jazz that, although young, maintains the memory of its roots: swing and sense of the blues... It includes standards but also has some personal songs that have been arranged especially for this band... In perfect osmosis, it delivers an elegant and intimate music, where the compositions of the pianist and the guitarist mingle with standards by Duke Ellington and George Gershwin.

“An authenticity and ease that is usually the domain of experienced interpreters. Suffice to say that this trio immediately seduces with its freshness and spontaneity. Not to mention the intrinsic talent of its members: a real treat.” Jacques Aboucaya - Jazz Magazine (4 stars)
“An impressive swing!” Alex Duthil - Open Jazz France Musique
Featured in the “Summer of Jazz” selection of TSF JAZZ - Summer 2015.
