Джазовый скрипач Дидье Локвуд приглашает Жан-Батиста Бодина на сцену, Сен-Сатурнин – Франция

Jean-Baptiste BaudinВеликий Стефан Граппелли по имени Дидье Локвуд, «мой сын в музыке», и этот всемирно известный джазовый и классический скрипач исполнил свое новое сольное / скрипичное шоу во французской деревне во время Фестиваля современного искусства под названием «Les Jours de lumière» (Дни света) в конце осени 2017 года.

В фестиваля принимали участие соло-аккордеонисты, проходя мимо выставочных залов, в каждом из них можно было услышать джаз и классические произведения. В поисках молодых музыкантов высокого уровня, организаторы выбрали знаменитую дневную школу аккордеона CNIMA J.Mornet.

Наталия Бушех, менеджер CNIMA (и международный лауреат), рекомендовала двух бывших учеников: Баши Славинской, лауреата многих премий классической и современной музыки в Польше и Франции, а также лауреата международных конкурсов аккордеониста Жана-Батиста Бодина.

Дидье Локвуд посетила выставку и услышал, как Жан-Батист Боден выступал во второй половине дня. Великая скрипачка поздравила Жан-Батист Бодена и попросила его (к счастливому удивлению 20-летнего музыканта) принять участие в вечернем концерте с его инструментом - аккордеон. И ближе к концу шоу ... см. Видео выше!

Joe Cooley Tribute Session Cavan – Irish Republic

Joe CooleyComhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (CCE) Cavan Musicians are holding a Christmas Eve Session in Cons Lounge, Butlersbridge, County Cavan, on Sunday, December 24th, 2.30pm - 5 pm, to celebrate the music of the late Joe Cooley RIP who died on December 20th, 1973. All are welcome to play or listen.

Joe Cooley (1924–73), from County Galway, was a 2-row button accordion player who became one of the most influential of Irish accordionists of his generation. He was one of the founders of the Tulla Ceili Band in 1946 and played with the Tulla on their first broadcast for Radio Éireann in 1948. In 1954 Joe Cooley moved to the USA and lived in New York where he formed the Joe Cooley Ceili Band and the Joe Cooley Instrumental Group. He moved from New York to Chicago, and finally to San Francisco. In Chicago, Joe and his flute playing brother Seamus formed the Glenside Ceili Band. While in San Francisco, Cooley formed the Gráinneog Céilidh Band, which included accordionist Kevin Keegan, fiddlers Sue Draheim and Will Spires, Eric Thompson, and others. In America, he married Nancy McMahon from Killenana, County Clare.

Joe returned to Ireland in the spring of 1973 after becoming ill with cancer. By this time he had become a legend, and his homecoming was like the return of a messiah. He toured the pubs of Clare and Galway with his friend banjo player Des Mulkere until shortly before his death in December 1973. His only commercial recordings were released in Ireland in 1975 as the LP (now on CD) ‘Cooley’. Recorded in 1973 in various pubs, this is lively Irish accordion music at its best. One of Cooley's enduring legacies is a reel named Joe Cooley's. Originally named The Tulla Reel, the tune became associated with Cooley and is now a standard in the Irish traditional music repertoire.
