CEDRIC HANRIOT TRIO

13 January | 11 am | Luxembourg City | Free 

ON YOUR OWN, WITH FRIENDS, WITH YOUR FAMILY

04

At 41 years the pianist Cédric Hanriot has already worked with different jazz legends. He took part in 8 different tracks of the 2015 Grammy award-winning album Beautiful Life by the singer Dianne Reeves. He also worked with legends such as Terri Lyne Carrington, Donny McCaslin or Grégoire Maret. From tour to tour, from sideman to leader, Cédric Hanriot sharpened his own style which incorporates acoustic elements (double bass, piano, drums) as well as electronic elements (vocoder, sound design) and he is thereby taking us on a journey from pop arrangements (Michael Jackson and Nirvana) to the Chanson Française. A sense of groove and interaction are the cornerstone of the trio, with Bertrand Beruard at the bass and Elie Martin Charrière at the drums.
