French Jazz Band Akpe Motion at Cafe 290

2009 November 3

The French jazz band Alain Brunet & Akpé Motion will perform at Café 290 Thursday, Nov. 5 at 8:30 p.m.

Alain Brunet & Akpé Motion combines swing, contemporary jazz, bop, rock and funk with Latin and African rhythms and an underlying electric sound.

What does that sound like? Think Weather Report mixed with Miles Davis, Roy Hargrove and a touch of Led Zeppelin.

Trumpet player Alain Brunet has played with Clark Terry, Sonny Stitt, Lee Konitz, Daniel Humair, Kenny Baron, Prince Lasha, and numerous other well-known jazz artists.

Akpé Motion will feature Alain Brunet, trumpet and vocals; Romain Simeray, guitar and vocals, Steve Florczykowski, bass; and Pascal Bouterin, drums.

Alain Brunet has toured throughout Europe, Brazil, India, Japan, and the U.S.
