Monino / Bex / Laizeau, a thrilling trio in perspective!
Monino / Bex / Laizeau is a band of three atypical French musicians. The rhythm section, made of François Laizeau and Frédéric Monino, has worked wonderfully for more than twenty years, on the occasion of multiple encounters and shows. Beyond the complicity of the two companions, it is the great musicality of every moment that emerges from their music. Emmanuel Bex, is an undisputed master of the Hammond organ, which he has not stopped dusting since the beginning of the 80s. His constant evolution, his insatiable appetite for innovations make him a musician in constant fusion, with a volcanic temperament.
Frédéric Monino has explored since the 90s many musical fields, from the Mediterranean to the Brazilian, from traditional forms to contemporary tracks, from French songs to flamenco, from funky to jazz. He is today a famous musician of the French scene. He represents the new wave of electric fretless bassists who restore the instrument to lyricism and poetry. He has accompanied various artists and bands, such as Laurent Cugny’s National Orchestra, Franck Tortiller, Olivier Kerourio, Lionel Suarez, Emmanuel Bex, Stefano di Battista, Juliette Greco, François Jeanneau, Betsy Jolas, Siegfried Kessler, David Linx, Sylvain Luc, Marcia Maria, Antoine Hervé, Monica Passos, Jorge Pardo, Thomas de Pourquery, Lucky Peterson and many others.
An undisputed master of the Hammond organ, a singular pianist, a prolific composer and an all-terrain pedagogue, Emmanuel Bex is an engaged artist, promoting jazz culture and values (sharing, democracy, openness, living together). His constant evolution and his insatiable appetite for innovations made him a musician in constant fusion, with volcanic temperament and abundant ideas, able to adapt to all musical worlds by printing his unique personality the least of his interventions. “Emmanuel Bex is one of the most impressive figures in European jazz.” Europa Jazz.
