Tigran Hamasyan, a genius pianist and composer of Armenian origin, has become a musical reference beyond the jazz sphere.
The musician breaks down the boundaries of jazz to offer music that belongs only to him. Vibrant, volcanic music, impregnated with rock, metal and Armenian folklore, in which polyrhythms alternate with calmer, poetic, ethereal phases, like a sound and cinematic wave in perpetual mutation.
At 35 years old, after having explored Armenian music, Tigran Hamasyan explores jazz standards. His album StandArt highlights the jazz repertoire from the 1920s to the 1950s with compositions by Richard Rodgers, Charlie Parker and Jerome Kern. Accompanied by Justin Brown and Matt Brewer, the trio offers us a "Tigran version" of the American music classics: dazzling, complex rhythms, rock accents and high harmony.
Combined with an original and elaborate scenography, mixing projection and jazz club atmosphere, in order to intertwine the universe of the artists and the jazz clubs codes.
