Benjamin Faconnier 4tet (FRA/ITA/FIN)

Sat 04Sep

This transborder quartet will present a balanced program of jazz standards as well as some originals with a more modern aesthetic.

Benjamin Faconnier is a trumpet player and music composer, born and raised in  Perpignan, south of France. His compositions are inspired by the powerful music of  masters such as Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus and Miles Davis, or yet by  contemporary musicians like Ambrose Akinmusire and Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah.  Upon meeting in Helsinki jam sessions, the musicians from this quartet decided to further  their collaboration and share their commitment to Black American improvisational music.
