EYM Trio featuring Toby Hack at the Opera de Lyon

This week in the Peristyle, we listened to ” EYM trio “. The band, which exists since 2010, is led by Elie Dufour young and very talented pianist who knew how to come along with so brilliant and different personalities to propose us a crossed and very well-balanced trio both on the musical and human being plans. We feel the total abstinence and sweetness of Yann Phayphet on the double bass which contrasts with an Elie Dufour whom we guess of a temperament of fire. The whole is bound as a good sauce of a family dish by the energy of Marc Michel on the drums.

This year, they swiped the prizes: they are prize-winners of the prestigious national competition of La Défense in Paris, the international competition of Getxo and the springboard festival of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. We follow them since some time now and we are not surprised: what has to happen happens! We knew that these three would seduce the public and the juries of France and from all over the country. If you like the music of Shai Maestro or still that of Joshua Redman, you will spend necessarily a good moment by listening to their album ” Genesi ” which proposes a jazz borrowing from the tones of the Eastern Europe, very dynamic and melodic where we pass by moments over-vitminazed and very rhythmic which are suddenly broken to leave us in the air, in suspension.

This evening they invited Toby Hack, young guitarist multiplying the collaborations who took us to travel towards hispanic parts of the country of Paco de Lucia. He also signs beautiful compositions such as the” tigran” but also” believe” and we can find him, without Elie Dufour, but still with Yann Phayphet and Marc Michel in “Jyoti Trio” which promises also a beautiful musical adventure to be closely followed …
