Veauche / L’Escale
A Broadway’s feeling
Longtime friends, important jazzmen figures of the region – where they haven taken part in many projects and bands – Benoît Thevenot, François-Régis Galix and Nicolas Serret – respectively pianist, contrabassist and drummer – have been collaborating in a perfect osmosis within the Magnetic Orchestra since 2011. Their cheerful complicity – developed and perfected through lots and lots of concerts – is audible in their compositions and covers – among which some Coltrane, Monk, Parker, Ellington or Amstrong’s songs – as well as their melodious intelligence and creativity.
Soft or tempestuous, stinging or tender, the trio’s music is an echo of the band’s name: it electrifies us within its magnetic force field. Here is an ideal frame for the voice of the young Anne Sila – a singer, originally from Valences – who revealed herself to the general public in The Voice France, season four – as she was among the final 2 as a result of her highly noticeable and rich participation. Anne is a singer but also a cello and piano player, she has learnt classical music in a music conservatory. Anne has enriched her culture of French poetic songs as well as the pop music her generation grew up with, but it is through jazz music that she achieved the full potential of her exceptional voice. After an interesting encounter with the contrabassist François Moutin, which has triggered her departure for the USA in 2011 where she could not but confront herself with the reality of jazz clubs but first and foremost immerse herself in the transatlantic music culture. A delicate phrasing, a sensual tessitura, a charming swing and an explosive scat are Anne’s assets. Under still juvenile and falsely genuine traits, she does hide a total control of rhythm and nuances worthy of the greatest jazzwomen. Under her genuine elegance and with her warm charisma, she shines and casts lovely spells as soon as she puts herself behind a microphone. In one word, a magnetic presence glorified by the eponymous trio.
