By popular demand, Benoit Viellefon is proud to present his new Trio. This truly international new outfit is comprised of Benoit with his signature French tinted vocals, playing a 1940's archtop guitar, the USA's finest stride pianist Andrew Oliver, and the fantastic Australian import Gregory Gottlieb on double bass.
Their music is a tribute to the timeless sound of The Nat King Cole Trio, Earl Hines, Fats Waller, Ragtime, French Chanson and early Latin American music. The all singing band brings a fresh and different take on the Classic American songbooks of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, bringing together the elegance, fun and driving rhythms of the era! This formidable band can as easily entertain a small and intimate audience, as they can a huge, lively crowd - and get them all jumping and jiving!
Already with residencies at Royal Albert Hall’s Jazz club, the infamous Nightjar and the reputable Boisdale Canary Wharf, the Benoit Viellefon Trio is quickly making it’s way to the core of the London jazz scene and soon will be releasing some new recordings.
