Finalist of the ReZZo Jazz à Vienne, ElliAViR is one of the new jazz sensations of the year 2022. At the head of this quintet, Lou Rivaille, undeniable leader with a crystalline voice and remarkable compositions. His acolytes are just as flamboyant: Rémi Flambard on trumpet, Christophe Waldner on piano, Cyril Billot on double bass and Maxime Mary on drums.
ElliAViR’s music will tell us the stories of their sonic journeys, blending their world music and jazz influences.
In turn, they transport us to the land of Eastern music and Celtic songs. And the captain, Lou Rivaille, tells us fabulous stories between the real and the unreal.
Signed by Kyudo records, which already hosts the beautiful careers of Leon Phal, Gauthier Toux, Ishkero and Yessaï Karapetian, the album of the Quintet should be released in September 2023.
Recorded in January, thanks to the support of ReZZo Jazz, in the sublime QDS studio (Anthony Joseph, Imany, Woodkid, etc.), they have been seen, read and heard this year on FIP, Jazz Magazine and their numerous partners such as the Paris Jazz Club, the Cosmojazz Festival, etc.
Obviously, these good stars have all been good advice and on the evening of July 26 the Festival des cinq continents will welcome a new sensation and one day you will be able to say, we were there!
