French-Italian band Equal Crossing at Philly-Joe’s jazz club

Philly-Joe's

Vabaduse väljak 10

Tallinn

Come and see the French-Italian band Equal Crossing live at Philly-Joe's jazz club in Tallinn, on May 25th at 8pm! Supported by the French Institute of Estonia.

French violinist and composer Régis Huby is one of the busiest jazz musicians in France. Currently, he's on the road with a project inspired by Claude Lévi-Strauss's book "Race and History", which is a celebration of diversity in cultures.

Together with three veterans of the European jazz scene, known for stretching musical conventions to the limit and beyond, they formed the jazz band Equal Crossing. Each musician is  free to take the music in his own direction, whether this be the terrain of atmospheric prog rock, passing by pyrotechnic fusion à la Mahavishnu Orchestra or intricate chamber jazz. Every time the result is innovative and elegant.


Régis Huby / violin, electronics
Marc Ducret / guitar
Bruno Angelini / keys
Michele Rabbia / drums, percussion

Opening at 7pm.
Beginning of the concert at 8pm.

Tickets 10 euros / 7 euros (student or retired) sold on site.
Purchase your tickets in advance by bank transfer (see the Facebook page of the event).
