SOLO - Jazz Live Act in VILLEMOMBLE

SOLO Short Info

From the time he began playing the double bass at age 16, Renaud Garcia-Fons saw possibilities in this instrument to explore all the styles that interested him classical, jazz, Persian, Indian, South American forms from the world over.

Driven by new ideas and the talent to translate them into compositions, he virtually reinvented the way the instrument could be played. The result: an altogether new sound an amalgam of double bass, cello, violin, guitar, lute, oud, and more that exceeds any conventional idea of playing the double bass

"Renaud is not a double bass player. He just uses the double bass for something else. He is the music.”

"Renaud Garcia-Fons brings a rare passion and understanding to the bass. His approach is pure genius, seen in the way he styles his pizzicato and in the manner he opens the arco to encompass melodic and improvisatory richness." Jerry D'Souza
