November-December 2017 – FIRST ABOVE ALL, DO NOT MISS TO VISIT THE META GALLERY, 39, AVENUE PRINCESSE GRACE, MONACO – In ancient Greek meta means beyond. In essence the gallery concept is driven towards timeless beauty and elevated emotion. META presents masterpieces from exceptional antiques to contemporary artists of global significance. Emphasizing pure aesthetic passion in the subtle relationship between the artists and their viewers the gallery space was designed to fuse art and technology. An ambitious exhibition program and its prime location by the beach in fascinating Monte-Carlo make it unavoidable in Monaco. At META think about buying Christmas present the an irresistibly cute and infinitely elegant Seahorse pendant made by hand in 18 karat yellow gold, a creative contribution to sustainable development through responsible action.  META MONACO is a proud partner of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. With the Seahorse pendant META supports the actions of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. Join the adventure by wearing the META Seahorse pendant! Part of its proceeds go to support this action. Respecting the environment and the protection of biodiversity is one of META’s long standing commitment. Founded by his H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is dedicated to the protection of the environment and the promotion of sustainable development on a global scale. “I decided to set up a Foundation whose purpose is to protect the environment and to encourage sustainable development (…). By definition, this is a common global challenge that requires urgent and concrete action in response to three major environmental issues: climate change, biodiversity and water.” H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco declared. Present-day pollution and environmental changes have made several species vulnerable to extinction and in the Mediterranean Sea the seahorse is one of them. Today the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has taken on the project to reintroduce the seahorse in the Larvotto. Together, let’s support the exciting return of these mythical little creatures to the Monte-Carlo shores. META is very grateful to the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation to make this possible.

Cory Henry is a multi-instrumentalist (organ and piano) and New York producer with an impressive career for his age. He is primarily known for harmonically rich organ playing that owes a greater debt to the virtuosic playing of Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson than it does to his peers (Jimmy Smith and other members of the Hammond organ pantheon). At times, he captures the very essence of jazz and gospel in his music and produces a new language from these two components. When he improvises, Cory Henry shows maturity far beyond his years. Unlike many virtuosos, he is also a great sideman. In particular, he has worked alongside Kenny Garrett, Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Fallon and Puff Daddy.

17th November – OPERA GARNIER MONTE-CARLO JAZZ FESTIVAL STACEY KENT & THE MONTE-CARLO PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA “I KNOW I DREAM” + LAURENT COULONDRE “GRAVITY ZERO” (1ST ACT) American singer Stacey Kent is so loved by the French that she received the Médaille de Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres from the French Minister for Culture.

The words are co-signed by the famous novelist Kazuo Ishiguro, the poet Antonio Ladeira and Nashville songwriter Cliff Goldmacher. This concert will be a real treat for ears which are sensitive to love stories told with romance and sensuality.

SAVE STACEY Image-à-la-une-640x360-Stacey-KentBorn in Gard, France, in 1989, Laurent Coulondre is part of this new generation of uncomplicated jazz. At just 28 years of age, the French pianist has featured as a sideman on several albums and has recorded three in his name.

18th November – OPERA GARNIER MONTE-CARLO JAZZ FESTIVAL – CHRISTOPHE – THE VESTIGES OF THE CHAOS TOUR” (1ST ACT)  Everyone carries his intimate chaos with him.  without doubt, does it more than anyone else. An original big bang forged out of childhood memories, explosive emotions, magical thoughts, melodies caught in mid-air, primitive rhythms and stealthy images forever imprinted on his cortex, all of which make up the hard disk of his memory. For more than fifty years, this has been the raw material of his work. Christophe has deftly sketched out a thirteenth studio album, which has been maturing for 7 years, and which is greatly anticipated… Jean-Michel Jarre, the creator of “Paradis Perdus” and “Mots bleus” has once again assisted Christophe in writing the words of the title song “Les vestiges du Chaos”, which inspired the title of this new album. He also collaborated with Boris Bergman (“Ange sale”), Daniel Bélanger (” Tangerine,” “Drone”) and the young writer Laurie Darmon (“Océan d’amour”, “Stella Botox”, “Tu te moques”), and many more artists. An opus of a dazzling modernity imagined by Christophe, supported by Christophe Van Huffel, who has been at his side for 15 years, with his crystalline voice returning to centre stage, thanks to the virtuosity of the younger generation represented by Maxime Le Guil (nominated for Grammy Awards 2016 – in the category Best Engineered Album) as co-creator and Clément Ducol, who has dressed this album with ultra-sensitive strings. The blues, electro-rock and poetic synthesizers rub shoulders are beautifully interspersed with a tribute to Lou Reed, a duo with Alan Vega or the incredible voice of Anna Mouglalis… and much more. By arrangement with L.A FACTORY by CARAMBA.

In this new project, they are surrounded by the “young wolves” of jazz: Lionel Loueke from Benin, highly gifted on the guitar, Steve Wilson, saxophonist and flutist from Chick’s original sextet, the grand Carlitos del Puerto on the bass and the Venezuelan master of percussion Luisito Quintero.

30th November – OPERA GARNIER MONTE-CARLO JAZZ FESTIVAL DIEGO EL CIGALA “INDESTRUCTIBLE” + DJANGO MEMORIES PROJECT (1ST ACT) Diego el Cigala, known for blending cultures and genres while developing the flamenco and exploring latin jazz, the bolero and the tango, made his debut in 1997. He surprised everyone in 2016 by showing off the great artists of another musical genre admired worldwide: the salsa. The issue which has led him to explore this genre was simple: what is the salsa? Therefore, the artist launched himself into an adventure to understand the origins and the development of this type of music through many travels that have helped to shape the style of his music, and in particular the neighborhoods of New York where the salsa was the fruit of the expression of the culture and the reality experienced by the Latino-Caribbeans.  This tribute to the salsa, Indestructible, is the result of a product carefully and specially designed by a group of producers and artists around Diego. The eponymous song of the disc and the tour was a hit from Ray Barretto which became popular in the 1970s and which El Cigala has taken as a point of departure. Indestructible is more than a tribute to the best of salsa, it is a message intended to show the world that this kind of music is alive and will be for a long time. By arrangement with Dionysiac Tour and Doctor Zhivago  Stochelo Rosenberg, born in a gypsy camp, began playing the guitar at the age of 10. Although his father and his uncle, Wasso Grünholz, taught him to play this instrument, he really learnt through listening to records by his hero, Django Reinhardt. At the age of 12, with his cousin Nous’che playing the rhythmic guitar and Rino van Hooydonk playing bass, Stochelo won first prize in a TV competition. Several record companies showed an interest, but Stochelo’s parents did not want their son to grow up in the spotlight. During this time, he played double bass with Nous’che and his brother in churches and gypsy camps all over Europe. Stochelo grew from a talented, but timid gypsy child to a world-class artist and composer. He has written many wonderful pieces. In the beginning, he played a Favino guitar and was then able to buy an old Selmer guitar, number 504. The legendary Django Reinhardt played the same guitar model, number 503. Stochelo Rosenberg is considered one of the finest guitarists, with an impeccable and very elegant technique and with a very personal  vibrato, combining virtuosity and emotion. Like many of his peers, Stochelo likes to improvise, and like many of his predecessors, he seeks new challenges. He likes trying out new ways of playing, but his first love is always Django Reinhardt’s music.

1st December – OPERA GARNIER MONTE-CARLO JAZZ FESTIVAL – LES TRIPLETTES DE BELLEVILLE + JAMES CARTER’S ELEKTRIK OUTLET (1ST ACT). Composer Benoît Charest, with his Terrible Orchestre de Belleville, thrusts us back into the poetic and wacky universe of the animated film “The Triplets of Belleville” with an on-stage, swing version of the soundtrack! In 2003, he composed the music of this retro tale with original graphics, produced by Sylvain Chomet. His musical work, which proposes a nostalgic return to the time of Parisian cabarets, 1930s’ jazz and the Hot Club de France, was immediately rewarded, notably with an Oscar for the best original song and a César for the best film music the following year. Today, he is interpreting the scores of The Triplets with his orchestra in sync to the film, which is being projected on screen. A journey through time is guaranteed!

James Carter is one of the most admired saxophonists of his generation, and has contributed to propelling jazz into the future in the past 25 years. His music is fed by profound respect and intimate knowledge of the jazz tradition. Born in 1969 in Detroit, Michigan, James Carter began playing the saxophone at the age of 11, and recorded for the first time with a group of students from Detroit in 1986. Successfully playing a family of reed instruments, from sopranino to double bass saxophones, including the bass clarinet, James Carter hypnotised the world of jazz after arriving in New York in 1988 to play under the auspices of the legendary trumpet-player, Lester Bowie. In 1991, he participated in the album The Organizer. His first album, JC On The Set, released in Japan when Carter was just 23, announced the arrival of an important and powerful musical force in jazz. This time, James Carter is exploring another groove with his new formation, James Carter’s Elektrik Outlet. He is trading his saxophone for an array of electronic equipment and pedals, an artistic choice which gives him the chance to express the “frustrated guitarist” that he often describes himself to be. With this new project, James Carter uses a heterogeneous selection of pieces, exploring other musical universes, sliding from Eddie Harris to Gene Ammons, via Stevie Wonder and Minnie Ripperton.

2nd December – OPERA GARNIER MONTE-CARLO JAZZ FESTIVAL – SCOTT BRADLEE’S POSTMODERN JUKEBOX + THE PUPPINI SISTERS (1ST ACT) postmodernjukebox.com Many bands have been formed in a garage, but this one was created in a basement: in this case in the basement of the house of the New York pianist Scott Bradlee in Queens with a few musician friends who liked to play the hits of the moment rearranged in various musical genres. In 2009, Scott had the idea to post the video of a session on Youtube in which they played the repertoire of the Canadian group Nickelback on 1960s arrangements. “A Motown Tribute to Nickelback” – the video was a smash. Encouraged by this initial success, Scott Bradlee created his own Youtube channel and formed the Postmodern Jukebox where different musicians and vocalists took turns. Shortly later, their doo wop cover of Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” resulted in the combo gaining popularity thanks to some 4 million views. Radiohead’s “Creep” shattered the Internet with 19 million views! Since then, PMJ has been posting a new video practically every week, always from the very cozy basement of Scott’s house. “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore is given a jazz swing from the 1920s. “Die Young” by Ke$ha is performed on the banjo in a country and western style. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, the White Stripes, the Strokes, Oasis have all been restyled. “Youtube pop of the 21st century in vintage style”: this is the trademark of Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox and net surfers love it. With 2 million subscribers and 500 million views, the group has finally decided to come out of its basement in Queens. They’re clamored for on four continents, and since then they have been spreading their love of the hits accommodated to the vintage sauce.

When you start out retro, you don’t expect to become true originals – but that’s the position The Puppini Sisters (Marcella Puppini, Kate Mullins and Emma Smith) are delighted to find themselves in. In the ten years since they began, it’s extraordinary how many others have followed their trailblazing lead, whether it’s the gorgeous close harmony singing style, the swing-style re-workings of modern pop songs, or their impeccable retro-futuristic fashion sense. The group was founded in 2004 by Marcella Puppini after she was inspired by the animated film Belleville Rendez-Vue (2003), and in 2005 they were signed by Universal Classics and Jazz. With four albums under their waist-cinching belts and a fifth one under way, the Puppini Sisters are now regarded as the world’s leading close-harmony group, and count Prince Charles, The Manhattan Transfer and Michael Bublé amongst their fans. Since then, the group have been awarded a Gold Disc and a Multi Platinum disc, have collaborated with Michael Bublé and have appeared on some of the world’s most prestigious stages, including Koko and The Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, l’Olympia in Paris, The Great Hall of Conservatory in Moscow, The Greek in L.A., B.B. King’s in New York and Glastonbury Festival. By arrangement with Enzo Productions
