Baptiste Trotignon-Minino Garay

Baptiste Trotignon-Minino Garay

Baptiste Trotignon crossed paths with the Argentinian percussionist Minino Garay in the course of his many musical encounters. The pair take evident pleasure in playing together and creating music that complements their image: a style of jazz that is both playful and dazzling, full-bodied and radiant.

Baptiste Trotignon and Minino Garay met during a 2011 tour of Argentina. In almost five years since then, the two musicians have followed a common path.

One of Europe’s leading jazz pianists, Baptiste Trotignon has recently showed himself to be classical music composer as well. As both a band leader (formerly as part of the trio Hit with the great Jeff Ballard), sideman (Aldo Romano, Stefano Di Battista…) part of duo (Mark Turner, Brad Mehladau…) or as a soloist – which he has been from the beginning – Baptiste Trotignon’s success is something about which the public and the critics are in full agreement.

With their minimal training and exclusive use of acoustic instruments (piano/ percussion), Baptiste Trotignon and Minino Garay feed off one another’s experiences, using music as a celebratory, poetic means to tell the stories of their respective histories and cultures. With their broad repertoire that moves from jazz songs, to their own compositions, to Argentinian tango, they are drawn to beautiful melodies and improvisations based on South American rhythms. Theirs is a true human and musical friendship that gives rise to a unique style of performance.

Baptiste Trotignon is one of the best jazz pianists in Europe. Lately he's also becoming well-known as a classical music composer. Be it personal projet or collaborations with other musiciens, his work has been highly regarded by audiences and critics.
