About this image

Starting from the music’s traditional roots, which borrow elements from the once-popular Java style blended with Valse Musette harmonies and Bossa Nova rhythms, Accord Vibes absorbed the concept of Richard Galliano’s New Musette, enriching it with their own vision and musical conception and shedding a new, unprecendented light upon it. Thus was Just Musette born, as a story originating from a popular, unique style which appeared in the early twentieth century Paris when the Italian born musicians from Auvergne became acquainted with the Manouche music, reinvented by Galliano and to which Accord Vibes confers a modern, original dimension, full of color and vitality. The Just Musette Project has been appreciated by audiences of some prestigious festivals: Festivalul George Enescu (2011), Festivalul de Film Istoric Rasnov (2012), Cafeteca Jazz Weekend (2012), Bucharest Music Film Festival (2013). Accord Vibes’ uniqueness also derives from the surprising encounter of three instruments that create a special sonority: vibraphone, accordion and double bass, a revealing and spectacular encounter through the symbiosis of sound colors and through the mutual harmonic support and complementarity.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
