  • ABOUT NICO

    For more than a decade, the parisian jazz scene has been blessed with a musician of a rare kind : bass player, composer and band leader Nico Moreaux. Throughout a string of records alongside the who's-who of contemporary jazz in France - Pierre Perchaud, Olivier Boge, Tony Paeleman, Tigran Hamasyan - he slowly earned the reputation of a bass player to be heard, and more importantly, felt. With a strong attachment to the essentials, and a unique sense of artistry and aesthetics, Moreaux seems in possession of a recipe that simply makes any band feel right at home. As a writer, his music display warmth, humour, and a love for strong and picturesque melodies, as can be heard in his wildely-hearded and awarded release "Fall Somewhere". And wether in concert or in his composed works Moreaux always appears driven by the same overaching quest : to deliver what is essential and true. (P.M)

     

     

    Nicolas Moreaux is a descendant of 19th century french composer H.Berlioz.

    He has occasionally studied privately with masters Dennis Irwin, Ben Street, Johannes Weindenmueller, all of whom teach clarity, the use of space, band support and creativity through the bass.

    He has put out 3 records as a band leader (a two drums sextet), and 3 as a co-leader (FOX, Belleville Project) on several renowned labels (Freshsound, Sunnyside, Jazz&People).

    While his compositions had been qualified as poetic, energetic and melodic by the critics, they also display generously his ability to bring a large variety of colours in his writing.

    Inspired by a wide range of styles ranging from folk/rock, free, film scores and classical music, his last record "Fall Somewhere" received the prestigious award "Grand prix du disque Charles Cros" as the jazz record of the year 2013.

    FOX (a collaborative band with Pierre Perchaud featuring Jorge Rossy and Chris Cheek) was nominated as a "Revelation" at the french TV/Radio "Victoires de la musique" awards in 2016.

    Both FOX and Belleville Project are recipients of the "Franco American Jazz Exchange" by Mid Atlantic Art Fondation and ADAMI grants.

    He had played with : Tigran Hamasyan, Jeff Ballard, Chris Cheek, Jorge Rossy, Baptiste Trotignon, Bill McHenry, Jeremy Udden, Robert Stillman, Dan Tepfer, Pedro Martins....
