Pianist Eric Legnini's 2017 China Tour

Pianist Eric Legnini's 2017 China Tour

A student of Richie Beirach, disciple of Herbie Hancock and Phineas Newborn, Eric Legnini develops a music in perpetual movement generated by an obsessive groove and a formidable technique. From the most virtuoso hard bop to the most bubbly funk, this pianist expresses his fascination for the voice through fruitful collaborations with musicians such as Hugh Coltman, Mamani Keita, Krystle Warren. The quality of his writng allows him to navigate between all genres.

Eric Legnini, through his new compositions, not only affirms his love of afro jazz rhythms, but also funk, soul ... In this sense he follows the trajectory of Herbie Hancock with the Headhunters - one of his references - or the legendary group Sly & The Family Stone.

2015 is a year in which he multiplies projects: a tour with the project "What'd I say", the recording for the label Impulse of the album "Red & Black Light" with Ibrahim Maalouf, followed by an inflamed tour in France and Europe until the apotheosis at the AccorHotelArena de Bercy on 14 December 2016.

Waxx Up

2017 marks the return of Eric Legnini on disc as the main act: Waxx Up is released in spring and will be the third part of the triptych devoted to the voice and initiated with the album "The Vox" in 2011. He invites his trio (Franck Agulhon on drums and Daniel Romeo on electric bass) and brass and vocals: Yael Naim, Charles X, Mathieu Boogaerts, Michelle Willis, Hugh Coltman and Natalie Williams.
