La Section Rythmique

From the Frenchmen Street in New Orleans to the Parisian jazz nights, all the way to international jazz festivals around the world, La Section Rythmique has accompanied numerous stars of the international jazz scene.

The band is made up of first class sidemen: guitarist David Blenkhorn (John Faddis, Scott Hamilton, Lee Konitz), bassist Sébastien Girardot (Lillian Boutté, Evan Christopher, Cecile McLorin Salvant) and drummer Guillaume Nouaux (Donald Harrison Jr, Chuck Berry, Leroy Jones). This excellent combo enthusiastically re-visits jazz standards with a touch of New Orleans, funk blues, and creole. It is no wonder that this is Evan Christopher’s rhythm section of choice. La Section Rythmique enters a new phase and is ready to take center stage.

This year the band is complete with the talented violinist George Washingmachine, one of Ascona’s favorite’s and with Hetty Kate, one of Australian jazz luminary James Morrison’s favourite singers.
