Storyteller / Bireli Lagrene
NAÏVE is proud to present Bireli Lagrene’s new album with an international trio. After a long period of "Gypsy Jazz", he is back to tradition with a new repertoire and a outstanding trio: Larry Grenadier (Brad Meldhau) on upright bass and Mino Cinelu (Miles Davis, Sting...) on percussion. An original composition, Brazilian and jazz standards, a breathtaking cover of Eddie Harris’s "Freedom Jazz Dance"...this music has never been heard before! Bireli Lagrene is a French jazz guitarist. He first came to prominence in the 1980s for his Django Reinhardt-influenced style. He has gone on to record numerous albums, both as a leader and as an accompanist, and has been in several filmed productions of concerts and documentaries.
