We met bass player ETIENNE MBAPPÉ in Cologne for a nice interview. He presented his new project and album “Etienne Mbappé & the Prophets”. A new Jazzrock/Fusion release that combines his African roots in music with his love to instrumental and joyful music.
The new Album “How Near How Far” is featuring Christophe Cravéro (acoustic and electric piano), Anthony Jambon (guitars), Clément Janinet (violin), Arno de Casanove (trumpet, flugelhorn), Hervé Gourdikian (tenor saxophone), and Nicholas Viccaro (drums, percussion).
Exploring the band members activities we found the drummer Nicholas Viccaro playing on our very first episode with Bireli Lagrene and keyboard player Christophe Cravéro recently playing with the Renaud Louis-Servais Group. We are also presenting a great live-clip from Renaud Louis-Servais playing at EjamsLive Festival 2016.
