Akinola Sennon started attending the Joseph School of the Arts in 1991, from age seven, learning to play the cuatro and studying the theory of music. He then moved on to playing two other instruments, the guitar and the piano at the said music school in Siparia, under the tutelage of Mr. Ashford Joseph. By age ten, Akinola was arranging musical compositions for his sibling to perform at his school concerts and recitals, since they all attended the same school.
Akinola Sennon started playing the steelpan in Standard Three with Mr Roland ‘Moose’ Joseph and at that point, he fell deeply in love with the instrument. During this time, he also played the guitar with the school and church choir. Miss Valdez, the school choir Mistress, was quite a huge influence in developing his musical ability. Mr Joseph nurtured his talent during that early period by taking him to many competitions and exposing us to the steelpan fraternity. Akinola Sennon remembers Mr Roland ‘Moose’ Joseph taking him to Pantrinbago’s Annual General Meetings and introducing him to various persons.
Akinola Sennon joined Siparia Deltones in 1996 for the Panorama season and also the Stage Side. It was there that he met Mr Carlton ‘Zanda’ Alexander. Akinola vividly remembers him asking him one day, “Young man, do you know your scales?” to which Akinola Sennon said “Yes.” He then instructed him, “Play me this scale,” which Akinola did. He then replied, “Ok, well do you know your chord scales?” Akinola again answered, “Yes.”He instructed, “Well play me this chord scale.” Akinola played the scale and he then requested him to play him the same chord scale from the 2nd inversion and that was where the trouble started. That was the beginning of a 17 year old relationship. Akinola has been his understudy since then.
Akinola Sennon was inducted as a member of the Coal Pot band which was led by Mr. Zanda. This band was basically a Kaiso/Jazz fusion ensemble with horns, vocals, piano, bass guitar and steelpan. He performed extensively at all the leading jazz and fusion shows throughout the nation, including Tobago Jazz Festival, San Fernando Jazz Festival, Sanch Apri Carnival, Siparia Jazz Festival, Point Jazz Festivaland many more. At age 18, he also began playing with Clive Alexander, Carlton’s older brother. This was also quite an experience and has significantly contributed to his overall development, especially his weekly performances at the Satchmo’s Jazz club on Ariapita Avenue for a number of months.
In 2003, Akinola Sennon became the captain of Siparia Deltones’ junior band and later went on to become the captain of the senior band. He has worked with the National Steel Symphony Orchestra for one year and the Pan in the Classroom Unit. Akinola Sennon has taught at Forest Reserve Anglican School, Fyzabad Presbyterian School, Iere High school, Palo Seco Government School and Trinidad Renaissance Preparatory School.
In 2009, Akinola played the role of the musical director for steel pan promotion in Canada, where, Siparia Deltones and I, did workshops throughout the country.
As an Arranger, he has composed for the Southern Marines Steel band Foundation placing 3rdin the Small Band Category of the Panorama competition of 2010. He won the Primary School category of the Sanfest Competition for four years in a row from 2010; three times with Forest Reserve Anglican School and one year with Trinidad Renaissance Preparatory School of which he is their musical director. Akinola Sennon also won the Pan for Blue Competition with Forest Reserve Anglican School in 2013.
He is presently the executive director and musical director of Siparia Deltones, where his intention is to have this instrument evolved globally. The designer of the band’s syllabus and course structure is what he is. Together with his band, Siparia Deltones, in 2013, they recorded an album with Hugh Masekela for which Akinola Sennon played the role of Project Coordinator and steelpan soloist.
Earlier this year, he travelled to the Netherlands to participate in the Amsterdams Conservatorium Van Summer Jazz Workshop where he is the first pan player to be accepted to be part of the prestige workshop. After that experience in the Netherlands, Akinola Sennon made a decision that the world should hear his voice more loudly via his pan. For whilst there he usually was approached and asked about his upcoming tours and albums due to students being overwhelmed by his playing ability. Akinola made the decision to do his first album, a project of the Deltones Institute of Steel Drums and music in collaboration with Berklee College, New England conservatory and Manhattan School of music students. Then he journeyed to the States where he auditioned students for the project.
This project was called Cousoumeh which received a record label contract from leading label Ropeadope Records. He also developed the concept of the album into a festival called the Cousoumeh festival. Both the album and the festival have been very successful thus far.
Akinola Sennon continues to work in the area of steelpan development, arranging and music education.

Femi Koya BIO

A story of migration from the West to the South – resonates in his music, which creates a conscious dialogue between West African and South African sounds. This musical fusion demonstrates the path to a new and culturally integrated Africa in which a common heritage
is reinforced to meet the needs of today’s world. His quest is for African unity at a time when he believes Africa should claim its rightful and proud place in the world.

Femi Koya’s debut album “Just in Newtown” is evidence of the rich melodies that result from this fusion. Through his versatility on the saxophone, he breathes new life into African world music. “Iba” meaning “Homage” is the title of Femi Koya’s album which was launched in August 2015. The Iba album also calls for African unity and makes a plea for human rights to be respected. But the album also
celebrates Africa’s love of life with infectious dance numbers that bring fans to their feet. His Iba album also features the Soweto Gospel Choir, Pops Mohamed, Stompie Manana, Prince Lengoase and Kenny Mataba and poetry by Pitika Ntuli and Lisa Combrinck.

His 2018 album .Village Afrobeat is an African party, jazzed up with Afrobeat’s horn arrangements, with talking drum and percussions driving the African heartbeat. Songs such as Babalawo, Lerato, Alo and Kongo enable new generations to understand the significance of the African unity as well as providing a nostalgic look at village culture and its life lessons.
The songs tell stories of what happens in villages and especially in fables, with animals like the tortoise, the role of the town criers, village men and women as part of the whole village lifestyle. The songs also depict nature, fertility, rituals, change of seasons and traditions essential to village life. 2019, he is re – releasing a remix EP “Ori Mi” and Single “Iba” in June 2019 following with a world tour.

His musical influences include Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Manu di Bango, Hugh Masekela,Baaba Maal and Sonny Rollins.

Transit Elektro | BIO

With a return to analog and very eclectic, indie jazz, TRANSIT ELEKTRO is starting a new era of the band, which was founded in 2007. In addition to the founding member Florian Scheffler (trumpet) there are now the proactive and ambitious musicians Kota Maeda (Japan, guitar), Mesut Gürsoy (Germany / Turkey, drums) and Lüder Lindau (Germany, bass). After a 5 year break, the second founding member Peter Herzau (Fender Rhodes, keys) returned to the band. For them, eclectic jazz means transferring the electro jazz of the original computer accompanied duo to the live generated structure of a quintet, using many effects and not being afraid of different musical styles. With their highly improvisational, undogmatic approach, the quintet fuses a wide variety of music styles such as jazz, dub, krautrock and funk. Sometimes danceable, sometimes melancholy, sometimes like the background music of a film or like a journey into the weightlessness of space.

SOME REVIEW

“The overdue debut album sounds close to the pulse of the times and offers urban sounds between chill-out and jazz club. Transit Elektro join the illustrious ranks of young musicians who are alien to any fear of contact between jazz and electro. If intelligent urban sounds combine a relaxed club feeling, cosmopolitanism and melancholy wanderlust, then Transit Elektro have set an example for this. World music sounds are organically combined with swirling synthie soundscapes, filigree to massive beats and echoing trumpet licks.”

(Stagecat.de)

“Trumpeter Florian Scheffler and his colleague Peter Herzau have one thing ahead of the city of Berlin: At their Airport, the mix of filigree electro beats, soft sound surfaces and jazzy trumpet themes is a harmonious mix.”

(Zitty)

https://0 BIRELI LAGRENE with MULTIQUARIUM BIG BAND Charlier / Sourisse (ITALIAN EXCLUSIVE)

I bassisti elettrici fanno spesso riferimento a due epoche: prima di Jaco e dopo Jaco. Jaco Pastorius è stato senza dubbio uno dei bassisti più stimolanti e influenti di tutti i tempi, e la sua influenza continua ancora oggi, circa 33 anni dopo la sua morte. Pastorius irruppe sulla scena musicale nel 1976 come parte di un trio nell’album Bright Size Life di Pat Metheny e nello stesso anno pubblicò il suo album solista omonimo, con una formazione che includeva Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Lenny White , Don Alias ​​e Michael e Randy Brecker. La sua brillantezza ha sbalordito gli ascoltatori, non ultimo ogni bassista che l’ha ascoltata.

Pastorius suonava il basso elettrico fretless, anche se contrariamente ad alcune storie, non fu il primo musicista a farlo (Ralphe Armstrong e Alphonso Johnson, ad esempio, suonavano il basso fretless prima di lui). Ma non c’è dubbio che Pastorius abbia cambiato il modo in cui molti musicisti si avvicinavano allo strumento. Il numero di apertura dell’album solista del 1976 fu Donna Lee di Charlie Parker, che includeva solo basso e conga. Il basso di Pastorius ha preso il posto del sax contralto di Parker, con il bassista che suonava i cambi a velocità vertiginosa. Nella traccia Portrait of Tracy, l’uso di falsi armonici da parte di Pastorius ha trasformato il suono del basso. Il dono di Pastorius per la melodia, l’intonazione perfetta, le superbe capacità compositive e di arrangiamento e la brillantezza tecnica hanno influenzato innumerevoli bassisti.

https://0 BIRELI LAGRENE with MULTIQUARIUM BIG BAND Charlier / Sourisse (ITALIAN EXCLUSIVE)

Come ha notato Pat Metheny nelle sue note di copertina per la riedizione dell’album di Jaco del 1976, “Jaco Pastorius potrebbe essere stato l’ultimo musicista jazz del 20° secolo ad aver avuto un impatto musicale sul mondo musicale in generale. Ovunque tu vada, a volte sembra una dozzina di volte al giorno, nei posti più improbabili senti il ​​suono di Jaco; dall’ultimo spot televisivo ai bassisti di ogni genere che si cimentano in registrazioni di tutti gli stili, dai telegiornali ai famosi gruppi rock and roll, dai campioni hip-hop agli album tributi personali, si sentono gli echi di quel suono inconfondibile ovunque. “

Il profilo di Pastorius è cresciuto ancora più in alto quando ha suonato con i Weather Report tra il 1976 e il 1982, la sua brillantezza e la sua abilità da spettacolo catapultarono la band dai club ai grandi locali. Ha anche registrato una serie di album e fatto un tour con Joni Mitchell. Ma spesso sembra che il prezzo pagato per la brillantezza artistica sia l’instabilità mentale e Pastorius soffriva di disturbo bipolare. Questa condizione, unita al suo uso di alcol e droghe, ha visto la vita di Pastorius precipitare, al punto che era un senzatetto e non poteva ottenere alcun lavoro. Il suo comportamento irregolare ha portato a uno scontro con un buttafuori di un night club, che lo ha picchiato e ucciso. Pastorius aveva solo 35 anni.

Da allora, c’è stata una sfilza di canzoni e album tributo dedicati a Pastorius, per non parlare di un’importante biografia dello scrittore jazz Bill Milkowski e di un eccellente film documentario di Robert Trujillo (il bassista dei Metallica). Ora abbiamo questo album tributo. Ma il mondo del jazz dovrebbe andare oltre Jaco? Il bassista Jeff Berlin la pensa così. Nel 2002, ha detto alla rivista Bass Inside, “Sono stupito dalla fornitura continua di dischi di Jaco, ‘questa canzone è per Jaco’ ‘questo è il compleanno di Jaco’, ‘questo è quello che è Jaco’. Se sento un’altra versione di Continuum o un’altra versione di Teen Town da un bassista che non accetta che l’uomo è morto da 15 anni! È tempo di andare avanti! Cerca qualcosa nella tua vita musicale che viene da te! …noi bassisti abbiamo dato troppa enfasi ai suoi contributi…. Sento che il lutto dovrebbe essere lasciato alla sua famiglia e ai suoi amici ora. Ma noi bassisti scendiamo da quel dannato carrozzone di Jaco Pastorius e andiamo avanti! Trova qualcosa in noi stessi. Non siamo diventati bassisti per poter diventare ‘giacofili’”.

Ha ragione, anche se chi scrive vira più verso l’opinione di Marcus Miller, citato nell’album tributo Word of Mouth Revisited, “La maggior parte dei musicisti che conosco apprezza assolutamente il contributo che Jaco ha dato alla musica… non dimenticare.”

E questo album di certo non permette a nessuno di dimenticare l’eredità di Jaco. La Multiquarium Big Band è una big band francese, guidata dal batterista André Charlier e dal pianista Benoît Sourisse. Per questo progetto, la band ha collaborato con il chitarrista Biréli Lagrène, un prodigio della musica, che ha iniziato a suonare la chitarra a quattro anni, ha debuttato al Montreux Jazz Festival quando aveva 13 anni e ha pubblicato il suo primo album l’anno successivo. Biréli Lagrène ha iniziato come erede di Django Reinhart, ma in seguito si è dedicato alla chitarra elettrica.

Il talento di Biréli Lagrène lo ha visto suonare con una serie di artisti jazz tra cui John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola, Benny Carter, Benny Goodman, Stanley Jordan, Larry Coryell, Charlie Haden, Miroslav Vitouš, Stanley Clarke e la Gil Evans Orchestra. Ha anche un forte legame con Pastorius. All’inizio degli anni ’80, Biréli Lagrène stava suonando da Ronnie Scott, quando raccolse una copia dell’album di Pastorius. Lo ha ispirato ad acquistare un basso fretless.

Anche Biréli Lagrène e Jaco Pastorius si sono incontrati a New York nei primi anni ’80 e sono diventati amici. Nel 1986, Biréli Lagrène, a soli 19 anni, si unì a Pastorius e al batterista Thomas Böröcz in un tour europeo. Biréli Lagrènee Pastorius hanno anche registrato un album insieme, Stuggart Aria. Non sorprende quindi che la morte di Pastorius abbia colpito profondamente Biréli Lagrène, che ha fatto molto per mantenere viva la fiamma di Jaco. Il suo album del 1988, Foreign Affairs, includeva il brano Timothee, che presentava un assolo di basso fretless di Biréli Lagrène. La traccia successiva, Josef, è stata chiaramente ispirata da Weather Report. Nel 2018, Biréli Lagrène ha suonato due spettacoli sold-out da Ronnie Scott, che hanno celebrato la vita e la musica di Pastorius. E ha tenuto concerti tributo a Jaco con la Multiquarium Big Band.

https://0 BIRELI LAGRENE with MULTIQUARIUM BIG BAND Charlier / Sourisse (ITALIAN EXCLUSIVE)

Remembering Jaco contiene nove brani musicali tratti dall’assolo di Jaco e dal repertorio dei Weather Report. Tre di loro – (Usato per essere A) Cha Cha, Continuum e Kuru/Speak Like A Child sono di Jaco Pastorius; Liberty City (intro)/Invitation e Fannie Mae di Invitation, mentre i quattro brani di Weather Report sono Barbary Coast (Black Market), Teen Town e Palladium (Heavy Weather) e Three Views Of A Secret (Night Passage). I completisti potrebbero essere interessati a sapere che la speciale versione in vinile di questo album ha quattro tracce extra tra cui il concerto preferito di Jaco The Chicken, più tre pezzi improvvisati. Inframmezzati tra le tracce ci sono quattro interludi parlati che vedono Peter Erskine che ricorda Jaco, sia come uomo che come musicista. Le sue parole sono chiaramente dal cuore e molto commoventi.

La traccia musicale di apertura, (Used To Be A) Cha Cha è sia drammatica che emozionante, con la linea di basso di Biréli Lagrène accompagnata da un’energica sezione di fiati. Le molteplici linee del corno si incrociano, a volte combinandosi; altre volte si scontrano: è un suono esilarante. In effetti, gli arrangiamenti per fiati (non accreditati) dell’intero album sono superbi. Inoltre, mentre Biréli Lagrène fa l’assolo su alcune tracce e il suo modo di suonare il basso è evidenziato in numeri come Continuum e Teen Town, per la maggior parte è in sottofondo, creando un groove profondo e spingendo la musica.

Barbary Coast è davvero swing e presenta un feroce assolo di sax alto di Lucas Saint-Criq, seguito da un lungo e fluente assolo di piano di Benoît Sourisse. C’è anche un accurato riff di chitarra jazz suonato da Pierre Perchaud, che ha ricordato a questo ascoltatore John Scofield. Liberty City comprende un’introduzione di 22 secondi prima di passare a Invitation. La versione originale della Word of Mouth Big Band è stata suonata a una velocità furiosa, con tamburi d’acciaio e armonica. Questa versione è un altro highlight per l’eccellente sezione dei fiati, con assoli di Denis Leloup e Stéphane Guillaume rispettivamente al trombone e al sax soprano. Biréli Lagrène dimostra anche la sua abilità al basso fretless con un breve assolo, e c’è una vivace pausa batteria/percussioni con il batterista André Charlier e il figlio Nicolas che suonano un assortimento di percussioni.

Kuru/Speak Like A Child è un’altra vetrina per il modo di suonare il pianoforte di Benoît Sourisse, che evita saggiamente di copiare Herbie Hancock, che ha suonato nella versione originale. L’elegante Three Views Of A Secret non solo rallenta il tempo, ma mostra quanto Jaco fosse un compositore di talento. Questo valzer jazz mid-tempo include un assolo di clarinetto di Stéphane Guillaume. Palladium è stato a lungo uno dei brani preferiti dai Weather Report di questo recensore ed è bello segnalare che la Multiquarium Big Band ne produce una buona versione sferragliante, con un altro travolgente assolo di Stéphane Guillaume, questa volta al sax tenore, e un vivace assolo di tromba di Pierre Drevet vicino alla coda.

L’album si conclude con una nota leggera, con Fannie Mae, uno dei concerti preferiti di Jaco. Il cantante Yannick Boudruche offre una performance coraggiosa e l’intera melodia – completa di organo Hammond stile Jimmy Smith di Benoît Sourisse e assolo di trombone di Damien Verberve – ti fa sorridere. È esattamente il modo giusto per ricordare Jaco. Mentre alcuni album tributo a Jaco Pastorius si sono concentrati sul suo virtuosismo come bassista, questo album va oltre e ti informa di quanto fosse un superbo compositore e arrangiatore. È un giusto tributo a un uomo che ha cambiato il volto della musica e continua a farlo oggi.

Magasin du Cafe – SAMSARA

Hypnotics is the definition that best suits them… This is the Magasin du Café!
Something explosive that wasn’t there yet and finally arrived. A mixture of elegance and energy, grace and effrontery, style and vehemence enclosed in a spiritual vortex. Their choice to do acoustic live performances in uncontaminated places, in the high mountains or in the most remote forests on the border between Italy and France is because of this desire to merge as much as possible with the mother of all mothers: NATURE.
Music that speaks to us of ancient traditions, in which the great North mixes with the East, the shamanic songs of America and Africa become modern. The sound is universal, the influences are exotic but without geographical connotation, they mix rock, jazz, and fusion, in a dialogue between four unprecedented musicians!

BIO

Magasin du Café was born in 2012 as a side project of the components, with a strong vocation for street art.
At first it becomes a way to explore intimate and ironic bistro music, ancient music to be recovered. The transition to world music was natural, looking more and more for the common roots of music and drawing from the common cultural baggage that ranges from classical to fusion, from folk to rock. Magasin du Café is striking for its ability to interpret very different genres, thanks to a highly respectable technical background.
Over the years their language has become unique and unitary, as has their sound. With the release of Samsara, their first completely unreleased record, the themes have become more mature, the result of the mix of styles that the musicians bring to the stage.
Magasin du Café project now has a more intimate and conceptual soul, but very enjoyable and exciting. In different situations they play acoustic live in uncontaminated places, in the high mountains or in the most remote woods on the border between Italy and France, for the desire
to blend as much as possible with the mother of all mothers, the Nature.
Their concerts are meditative and often manage to bring the audience into an almost hypnotic state. Music that speaks to us of distant traditions, in which the great North mixes with the East, the shamanic songs of America and Africa become modern. The sound is universal, the sounds are exotic but without geographical connotation, they mix with rock, jazz, fusion, in an unprecedented dialogue between the four musicians.

PHAT STRUT

The union between the groovy and very high quality music of PHAT STRUT together with the beautiful and powerful black voice of the funky “big mama” Tiza Brown, gives life to one of the absolutely best funky jazz bands in the panorama of emerging musical projects.
Drummer Thierry Choinard met with bass player Laurent Schaffter in Los Angeles, in 1995, which led them to play as a combo in different Soul Funk and R&B projects.
Bertrand Gallaz joined the combo in 1998 in Switzerland to found their first project, Fool Groove, focused on playing The Meters’ repertoire, in local festivals and venues. Bertrand was already an established and recognized guitar player of the local scene – and to some extend international scene – especially in Jazz and Funk. He had already several albums out featuring well-known artists such as Jean-Paul Bourelly or Ronald Shannon Jackson (Decoding Society, Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler).

https://0 Phat Strut | Funk, Jazz, Soul (CH)

In 2008, the three musicians decided to create their own music. PHAT STRUT was founded. Meanwhile organist / keyboardist Giuseppe Germano joined the band and a first repertoire of pure instrumental Funk was born.
The band recorded its first album in 2011 and started to play festivals and venues around the French part of Switzerland. The guys knew they wanted to add some great soulful and funky lead vocals at some points.
Since 2008, PHAT STRUT has been collaborating with several gifted soulful artists such as LZ LOVE from the USA or from Switzerland, lead vocalists who always had soulful captivating voices and strong energy. LZ LOVE participated in the writing of several lyrics, toured with the band in the United States and is featured on two albums.

Tiza Brown joined PHAT STRUT early 2020 as lead singer. Tiza is an American singer, reputed for having frequented some of the best musical scenes in Switzerland and the neighboring countries during her years in Europe. From Jazz to Gospel, Soul and Funk, Tiza has a warm and powerful voice. She has performed with Phil Collins, Phil Perry or saxophonist Gerald Albright and assured opening act for artists such as James Brown, Maceo Parker, Candy Dulfer, Erykah Badu.

https://0 Phat Strut | Funk, Jazz, Soul (CH)

PHAT STRUT has released 4 albums, including one recorded live in Austin, TX. Several singles and the latest album « Funky Confessions » are available on all main digital platforms for download or streaming. All studio recordings were recorded live, meaning all instruments were recorded together at the same time with no over-dubs or re-recording what so ever. Each track is a lively authentic capture of the band moment, in the same way The Meters recorded their music. All organic and live.

https://0 Phat Strut | Funk, Jazz, Soul (CH)

PHAT STRUT received appreciation and personal direct support from Leo Nocentelli (The Meters), Pee Wee Ellis (James Brown, JB’s) and Shane Theriot.

We look forward to playing our music for more and more people and provide a great time to everyone.
