From New Orleans to Paris and festivals around the globe, this trio plays with some of the best in swinging jazz today. David Blenkhorn (John Faddis, Scott Hamilton, Lee Konitz), Sébastien Girardot (Lillian Boutté, Evan Christopher, Cecile McLorin Salvant) and Guillaume Nouaux (Donald Harrison Jr, Chuck Berry, Leroy Jones) have a fresh take on these standards of new orleans jazz combining elements of creole, blues and funk. It is for good reason that this trio is Evan Christopher’s preferred rhythm section as it developed its personal sound informed by his knowledge of the culture and music of New Orleans (he also writes the liner notes). This group has already proven itself talented accompanists to some of the top jazzmen and is ready to take centre stage in their own right.

We’re proud to announce the arrival of our new recording, “Django à la Créole: ‘Live’!” We professionally recorded the last four concerts of our 2012 season, and arranged the best tracks into a concert-length experience. Our friends at Frèmeaux and Associates were enthusiastic to help, and though it took some time to finish the production, we think it was worth the wait.
Thank you all for your continued support. The reception of the first two CDs was encouraging, as well as the demand for us to release some live material. We look forward to thanking you in person sometime this year at one of our 2014 shows celebrating the new CD. Effective March 1, it is available here on our new website as well as the usual places including (blank, blank & blank with hypertext links). We have even posted a couple of tracks on Soundcloud that you can enjoy and share.
Vive Django! Vive New Orleans! See you soon,
Evan Christopher & DalaC
