Michel Portal, soprano sax, clarinets – Vincent Peirani, accordion
One of the most original jazz musicians of the Old Continent and the new man of the accordion. Michel Portal, well known also to the Fano Jazz audience By The Sea, is a personality of inexhaustible imagination, whose genius is expressed in very different and often opposed contexts, always far from the common places of jazz, classical music and contemporary, areas among which the musician of Bayonne is always divided without disruption and language limitations. The duo with Vincent Peirani is another of his winning choices: awarded by the Académie du Jazz of the prestigious “Prix Django Reinjardt” as the best French musician of 2013, the accordionist collected the first awards in the mid-nineties and is now in great demand its technical qualities and its expressive versatility. In addition to the best of transalpine jazz, he currently plays in the group of the Korean singer Youn Sun Nah.
