CÉCILE NORDEGG: NO-CE & BAND
THURSDAY, NOV 07 2019, 07:00 PM
The unique sound and style of Cécile Nordegg & Band combine Edith Piaf and Frank Zappa in celebration of French jazz with a rock’n roll-twist.
French jazz is not that easy to find and a new experience for many. But for both newcomers and those already soaked in the boozy musical brew, there is a wealth to savor. There are as many rock riffs as there are torch songs, there are glimpses into cabaret resurrected from a bygone age, and there is a contemporary experience that relates to this day and age.
With a casual cover of Frank Zappa’s notorious “Bobby Brown” thrown in for good measure (sung in honeyed French tones, naturally), plus standards by Piaf and Brel, all contributing to Cécile Nordegg & Band’s own original songs and compositions, this is an experience not to be missed. Their latest release ‘Jazz Proclamation Vol.1 & 2 is moving, humorous, and unlike any jazz you’ve heard.

Austrian-based No-Ce & Band is fronted by Cécile Nordegg, an actress and chanteuse. Her musical home is jazz, which she combines with the narrative art of French chanson and her roots in rock'n'roll, and so has found her own sound and style. Nordegg has released her first album in 2015, titled 'no-ce chansons noce'. Since then she has performed in numerous international venues. Megumi Otsuka performs on piano. Her credits include Franco Corelli, Renata Scotto, Max Emanuel Cencic as well as the Tokyo Symphonic Orchestra. JP Chiche, who has shared the stage with everyone from Aerosmith to Fats Domino, shines on guitar and background vocals. Marco Böhm plays drums. He has previously collaborated with the Phoenix Creative and Drumatical Theatre, Artett, Lucky Dean Luciano, and Rebecca 1147. And last but not least, on clarinet, sopran sax, and flute performs Andreas Pirringer, who previously has worked with Charlie Haden, Kei Akagi, Bobby Shew, Gustavo Aguilar, Wolfgang Lindner Band, Richard Clayderman, Peter Kraus, Johnny Logan, Umberto Tozzi, Wencke Myhre, Roberto Blanco, David Hasselhoff, Andreas Gabalier, Andy Borg, Patrick Lindner, and Albano Carrisi. www.cecilenordegg.eu
