*WATCH THE VIDEO HERE: Jazz Concert de Trio Film Françoise Pujol sur France Inter


Ce film historique de Françoise Pujol Trio en concert à l’intérieur de la radio France Inter est la première fois qu’un appareil a été autorisé à filmer à l’intérieur de ce studio de radio. L’homme caméra n’est autre que Jon Hammond. Un merci très spécial à André Francis Producteur Jazz Radio grande!
This marks the 20th anniversary of this wonderful concert, yes it was 20 years ago folks! Incredible playing by these musicians – Francoise Pujol who is my personal favorite pianist in France today – Jazz and Classical. Along with her emerging star musicians: Bassist Richard Bona the phenom bass player born in Cameroon and now living in Brooklyn, and the very tasteful drumming (and sometimes explosive!) of Francis Lassus of Paris.
S’il vous plaît profiter de cette radio France Inter concert présenté par Jon Hammond.
Les gens l’attention de New York: Françoise Pujol et sa bande seront en provenance de Paris pour jouer 2 concerts le 8 Septembre et le 10, je suis honoré d’être un invité spécial lors d’une partie de son concert d’orgue Hammond avec Françoise et sa bande.
