JEAN PIERRE DEROUARD SWING MUSIC BIG BAND
in 2005 JP Derouard invited musicians of different musical horizons to become a swinging Bigband.
The orchestra pays tribute to one of the greatest orchestras of swing: the COUNT BASIE Bigband. With arrangements by SAMMY NESTICO , NEAL HEFTY and BENNY CARTER the orchestra is interpreting all the popular standards that have been played by the Count Basie Bigband.
Not only their virtuous musical performance is a delightful experience, this band emanates joy and will make you experience the spirit of BASIE alive.
Musicians like the singer CHINA MOSES and her pianist RAPHAEL LEMONNIER aswell as the virtuous trumpetplayer FRANCOIS BIENSAN and the vibraphonist DANY DORIZ have been attending the JP Derouard Bigband.
