Who we are

Little Guinguette takes us back to the time when Swing was all the rage in the smoky bars of Harlem and Saint-Germain-des-Prés. From Billie Holiday to Sidney Bechet via Joséphine Baker, the trio from Montpellier brilliantly interprets the great standards of Jazz as well as the forgotten gems of the 1930s and 1940s. The velvety sound of the clarinet, mixed with the sweetness of the voice and the cornet, the sensuality of the saxophone, all transported by the swing of a gypsy guitar and the percussion of a pair of tap shoes. This alchemy of timbres brings back the blues, ballads and charlestons of yesteryear.

Audrey Leclair, singer well known on the Montpellier swing scene, her deliciously old-fashioned tone of voice certainly charms the audience. Some will recognize the voice inflections of Billie Holiday and other blues singers. But that's not all: she improvises as well with her voice, her cornet and, wearing a pair of tap dancing, she will not fail to demonstrate her talents as a rhythmist. Her qualities as a multi-instrumentalist make her a remarkable musician.

David Tavani, virtuoso clarinetist, will not fail to thrill his listeners with his lyricism and his melodic flights. And because one talent can hide another (or several!), He will also seduce you with the suave sound of his tenor saxophone and the ardor of his soprano saxophone by reinterpreting the most beautiful works of Sidney Bechet.

Abel Pamies, straight from Catalonia and graduated from the Paris Jazz Conservatory, recreates the swing typical of the Roaring Twenties with a solid and energetic rhythm.

The musical and human complicity of the three musicians is beyond doubt. Their music exudes good humor and their pleasure in playing it is contagious: the audience leaves the room with joy in their hearts and a hint of nostalgia.
