CD review: Alexandre Cavaliere – Manouche Moderne 2020: Video, CD cover

- in New CD's Review, VIDEOS

These stories of exceptional talents discovered at an early age are probably appropriate in the case of the violinist Alexandre Cavaliere. At the age of 12, he met Didier Lockwood and Babik Reinhardt who invited him to Paris, infusing his career with a dazzling depar ture.

Then ever ything is linked naturally. Alexandre skims international scenes with his father’s group and collects an impressive list of per formances: at the Princess Grace Theater in Monaco, in the first par t of Michel Jonasz at the Olympia, at the ‘Jazz Espoo’ festival in Finland or, thanks to Dorado Schmitt, New York, during the Django Reinhardt festival at Birdland. His interventions on television and radio are increasing.

Today, he is back with a new project of which he is the leader, “Alexandre Cavaliere Quintet”, which mixes Gypsy jazz music in his hear t (gypsy jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt) to the idiom be-bop and modern jazz through influences like Dorado Schmitt, or Bireli Lagrene.
