2023 Program

IN festival at Le Parc des Expositions du Comminges


With her latest creation Maelström, the Franco-Irish violinist, composer and conductor Fiona Monbet invites the audience to a powerful whirlwind through her abundant musical universe


The bubbling Amazing Keystone Big Band, which expresses both the spirit and soul of the great bands of the swing era and the inventiveness, openness and insolent virtuosity of today’s jazz, will share the stage with the great lady of jazz Dee Dee Bridgewater.


The “Influences” project was born in 2017, at the initiative of guitarist and composer Louis Martinez, during the recording of the album “Thème pour Mike”. A jazz guitarist with a rare sensitivity, he brings around him a solid rhythm with which he has been collaborating for several years to explore a new facet of his inspirations: song.


Multi-instrumentalist, creator, producer and composer extraordinaire, Marcus Miller is one of today’s greatest names. From Miles Davis’ “Tutu” to Claude Nougaro’s “Nougayork”, Marcus Miller has always interjected his bass into everything that grooves. The New York bass virtuoso has mastered this sense of rhythm to perfection. And each of his concerts confirms that he belongs in the pantheon of five-star electric bassists.


A concert with an irresistible groove. Brooklyn Funk Essentials is a group of musicians from all over the world who blend jazz, funk, soul, ska, disco, house and rap. Since its founding, the band has navigated its love of jazz and new influences with an inimitable groove. Their experience in the New York club scene has made them a formidable dance machine.


Furious and funky, capable of magnifying the most cerebral bebop as well as the sweetest jazz, Kenny Garrett is above all an ode to freedom, known for his breathtaking improvisations. He and his quintet offer a frantic and bewitching live performance, capable of both exuberance and great spirituality.
And Garrett’s other great strength is to have imposed his compositions with multiple influences, oriental and more recently Caribbean, which ultimately say much more than his impressive technique.


Over the past decade, Alfredo Rodriguez, a young Cuban artist, has risen to the status of a recognized musician with Grammy Award nominations for three critically acclaimed albums released by Mack Avenue Records, Sounds of Space (2011), The Invasion Parade (2014), Tocororo (2016) and The Little Dream (2018).


It is also an opportunity for the man who has recorded 75 albums on the piano to fulfil a 50-year-old dream: to sing. In this unique evening, Monty Alexander will mix Monk classics, performed with leading guests, with his childhood favourites, and with songs that he has always loved.
The favourite songs of his childhood, the ones that remind him of the heady smell of
the intoxicating smell of jasmine that enveloped his school holidays in the paradise bay of Montego.
