A pianist influenced by Bud Powell, Hank Jones, Teddy Wilson, Emilie Calvez settled in Paris in 2015 and created her first trio in 2018. She works with several musicians playing in Paris and all over France. As she is extremely sensitive, she is inspired by the great musicians she has met in Paris and on her numerous trips to New York. Her musical universe is nourished by them and built around them. Particularly attached to this formula, Emilie is today at the head of two trios:
Emilie Calvez Trio ('s)
Emilie Calvez (p) Vincent Robineau (g) Laurent Fradelizi (b)
The second takes up the "queen of jazz" instrumentation, that of the great masters : the trio piano, bass, drums. Highlighting the piano strongly supported by the energy of the rhythmic session, this band allows you to freely explore the hardbop repertory : from Sonny Clark to Cedar Walton, via Horace Silver...
The first is characterized by an original instrumentation : piano, guitar, bass. This iintimate approach makes it possible to revisit the standards, but also the bop repertory since this project was the topic of a first recording dedicated to Bud Powell.
