Among Foenix Big Band’s influences, they name Count Basie and Grandmaster Flash on a par with Benny Goodman, A Tribe Called Quest, Kenny Dorham, Busta Rhymes and Notorious BIG. Which is not so fanciful! The talent scout pianist Jean-Marie Bellec conducts them. From his pedagogical activities, particularly at the Nantes Conservatoire, he trained the new jazz generation in Nantes. They partner the Swiss vocal jazz genius Andreas Schaerer, for a unique creation.
