Album "Place Ste Opportune"



French song between tenderness and mischief, a delight!

At a heavenly dinner party where Sinatra, Nougaro, Salvador or Gainsbourg would be invited, the conversation would inevitably come to Thomas Curbillon, this great escogriffe who, with his first album “Place Ste Opportune”, knew how to bring together swing and French song.
Guitarist and singer, lover of American standards, it was when he discovered the texts proposed by the author Gaëlle Renard that Thomas Curbillon said to himself “Why not put them to music?
The critics responded by saying, “Indeed!” when they discovered this album, which is off the beaten track and has been praised by Jazz magazine, France Musique, Télérama, FIP and Jazz News…
A universe where tenderness, charm and humour are combined, all qualities that the guitarist and singer knows how to combine on stage, surrounded by his 5-star cast!
In the beautiful Salle des fêtes of the Mairie du 6e, the quartet will perform the songs from the album, as well as a few unreleased tracks, heralding a new opus…

Thomas Curbillon: guitar, voice / Quentin Ghomari: trumpet / Simon Chivallon: piano / Alexis Gilson: double bass
