Octave & anatoLE (Thursday)

Ten years ago, this duo of gypsy jazz guitarists wanted to pay homage to Django Reinhardt then little by little the repertoire and the collective widened, according to the musical meetings. Today, led by a couple of lindy hop dancers, Octave and Anatole have put together a nice repertoire of custom-made standards (Billy Holliday, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee ...). In short, a fresh and generous quintet that revisits the great jazz standards of the 30s
