Jazz at Infinity- Ft. French Conexion

Join us at the Infinity Arts Café on Friday, June 22 at 7pm for a performance with French ConéXion.
The Jazz at Infinity series is made possible by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation.
Thanks to their support, this event is free and open to the public.

French ConéXion is an ensemble with a truly international background featuring Jeremy Spindler (France, Brazil), accordion, Marc Cousins (France, Belgium), double bass and Bernard Kunz (Switzerland), guitar, oud.

French ConéXion plays new musette, manouche, Brazilian choros, tangos, jazz standards, improvisations, originals and any other tunes that come our way and catch our fancy.

French ConéXion was formed in the summer of 2016 with the intention of creating high quality music in a jazz format where musicians are able to take a composition and create a unique and new version at every performance. Our focus is on the music of French accordion great Richard Galliano and his new jazz musette compositions, choros and forros from Brazil as well as manouche gypsy music from northern and eastern Europe. Naturally we also play standards from the American jazz repertoire. In additon we perform some of our own compositions and improvisations.

French ConéXion has performed at many local venues such as Sportsmen’s Tavern (opening for Gypsy jazz guitarist Stéphane Wrembel), Pausa Art House, Merge Restaurant, Webster’s Bistro, Carnegie Art Center and Platters Chocolates in North Tonawanda, Coco Bar and Restaurant, Nietzsche’s, Daily Planet Coffee Co., the Foundry Suites, the Meeting House in Williamsville and the Hollow Bistro and Brew in Clarence.
