David Fettmann

David Fettmann has a Master's Degree in Jazz (from the Lemmens Institute in Leuven, Belgium), a Bachelor in Music (from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, Netherlands) and a diploma in jazz from the National Conservatory in Nice, France. He also won first prize in the category jazz saxophone there. He was alto saxophonist in the ONJL (Orchestre National Jazz Luxembourg) from 2005 to 2012, with which he accompanied George Duke, Dee Bridgewater, Paquito D’Rivera, Richard Bona, Patti Austin, Helge Schneider and Didier Lockwood, among others. Fettmann also belongs to the "Orchestre de Jazz de la Musique de l’Armée de l’Air" and the "Electro Deluxe Big Band".
  The organist Guillaume Naud graduated from the renowned Parisian jazz institute CIM, has worked with renowned musicians such as Michel Legrand, Youn Sun Nah and Stéphane Belmondo and has released several albums under his own name. The 42 year old is considered an extremely sensitive accompanier and expressive soloist.
  The two Frenchmen received US American support from Johnathan Blake, one of the most interesting drummers of the current generation. The journalist John Murph called him the "ultimate modernist" due to his song-like and at the same time irresistibly grooving rhythm. Blake first caught the attention of the public as a permanent member in the bands of Tom Harrell, Kenny Barron, Oliver Lake, Roy Hargrove and David Sanchez. The 38 year old can look back on collaboration with Hans Glawischnig, Alex Sipiagin, Donny McCaslin, Avishai Cohen, Omer Avital, Shauli Einav and Jaleel Shaw as well as approx. 50 releases and his own CD in the meantime.
