Un Poco Loco - Jazz Live Act in Paris

Un Poco Loco Short Info

Un Poco Loco is what you get when you put together three French modern-day improvisers and let them revisit the bebop repertoire of the 1940s and 50s, with a preference for standards spiced up with an exotic je ne sais quoi.

This new trio digs up lesser-known or unexpected themes and chisel its way — both whimsically and respectfully — through form, timbre and counterpoint, blurring the frontiers between written and improvised music.

The three long-time friends, who are all active members of the Parisian stage always try to keep in mind the acoustic elegance of the West Coast sound as well as the rhythm and melodic power of 1930s jazz, thus adding their own particular grammar as contemporary musicians to the existing musical language.

Their three voices blend, collide, and cross paths — building a new, spontaneous and lively composition.
