Matthis Pascaud & Hugh Coltman “Night Trippin'”
Tribute to Dr. John
A young guitar prodigy, highly sought-after sideman and talented composer who captivates with his audacious, volcanic and contemporary compositions, Matthis Pascaud, after two albums with his band Square One, pays tribute to the legendary New-Orleans guitarist and composer: Dr John. For this new project, he has chosen to collaborate with the English singer Hugh Coltman.
Former leader of the band The Hoax, Hugh Coltman, the most French of English crooners, recorded the very successful album Shadows: Songs of Nat King Cole and landed a “Victoire du Jazz” award in 2017. Inspired by the series Treme and its musical treasures, he left for New Orleans to write Who’s happy? and asserted his qualities as a jazzman.
These two great admirers of the pianist/singer from Louisiana decided to explore the sixties period of Dr John. A fiery mixture uniting New-Orleans folklore, the electric atmosphere of the band, Hugh’s suave, delicately husky voice and Matthis’s assured, resolute and determined guitar play, his accomplished and very personal song-writing which make him one of the solid values of the French music scene. A real lesson in elegance, with the divine lightness of a funambulist voice and, from start to finish, language of musical intelligence.
