SAMARA JOY

The new rising star of vocal jazz and winner of two GRAMMYS® in 2023 (“Best New Artist” and “Best Jazz Vocal Album” for Linger Awhile), Samara Joy makes no secret of her sources of influence.
Among those whom she herself cites, we find Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Betty Carter. Legendary names who have performed many times in the Gould pine grove. This concert will be the young artist’s opportunity to perform on a stage steeped in Jazz history and in the aura of those artists who so greatly inspired her.
In her first album, Samara brings jazz standards up to date with a dash of modernity and that is what contributes to the strength of this artist: she continues the tradition of great jazz singers, with respect and humility while bringing her own personal touch and making her own way, also illustrating the timelessness of her predecessors.

SDAY 11TH JULY
10.00PM
PINÈDE GOULD
FROM €50 / €25*, BOTH CONCERTS

Wearing a suit and sunglasses with, his hair sleeked back and of course his electric guitar slung over his shoulder, Joe Bonamassa is ready to set the stage ablaze.

Nominated 3 times for the Grammys® and having been at number 1 of the Blues album Billboard 25 times to date, this famous Blues-Rock guitarist and singer-songwriter will be calling at Juan this summer to give the Gould pine grove a buzz. Passing from powerful bluesy riffs to softer sequences, sometimes within the same song, it is with much mastery and energy that this virtuoso shares his music with his audience.
Since the start of his career with B.B. King at the age of 12, Joe has never ceased performing with the greatest (Eric Clapton, Slash…), placing his name among the giants of Blues Rock. He has performed on prestigious stages such as the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Carnegie Hall in New York and the Vienna State Opera. The Gould pine grove, which itself welcomed B.B. King from 1994 to 2011, will be added to his list for our greatest pleasure, where he will perform hits from his latest album Time Clocks and from the vast repertoire of his classics.

A co-production with the festivals Jazz sous les Pommiers, Jazz en Comminges and Jazz à Vienne.

Her first appearance in 1989 when she replaced the great Sarah Vaughan at the last minute was a true case of love at first sight. Juan at once fell in love with this attractive star, universal incarnation of the Jazz Singer, scat expert, so at ease on stage, sensual, full of nuance and expression…
Throughout her career, Dee Dee Bridgewater has never ceased to build bridges between musical genres. All through the 70s she performed alongside great names in jazz such as Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Dizzy Gillespie and became one of the main soloists of Mel Lewis’s and Thad Jones’s big band. In the 80s, she tried her hand at pop music then moved to Paris where she refocussed her energy on jazz.
This time Dee Dee is back with the project “We Love Ella“, a tribute to the legendary Ella Fitzgerald. The jazz big band The Amazing Keystone Big Band, winner of the 2018 “Victoires du jazz” award in the category “Band of the year”, will be performing by her side to reinvent Ella’s greatest hits, in the Gould pine grove where Ella conversed with the crickets nearly 60 years earlier. This concert is a special creation.

BRAD MEHLDAU TRIO

The jazz pianist Brad Mehldau, winner of a GRAMMY AWARD®, has made numerous recordings and given many performances since the start of the 1990s. Mehldau’s most regular production over the years has been as a trio formation. Right from the start on his earliest albums, Brad mixes original compositions with arrangements from pop or rock songs, which demonstrates the variety of his influences.
His latest solo album Your mother should know: Brad Mehldau Plays the Beatles released in 2023 shows just how much of an impact this band had on the artist’s musical universe. He also composes albums known as « concept albums », in particular Elegiac Cycle and Places. These albums are composed exclusively of original material and musical themes gliding over the compositions, strengthening the link between the songs and underlining a continuity from the first to the last song of the album.
Brad has also composed film scores, such as those of Space Cowboys directed by Clint Eastwood in 2000 and Happily ever after by Yvan Attal in 2004.
It is as a trio that the pianist will perform on stage in the Gould pine grove this summer, to share his repertoire and his musical influences with the Jazz à Juan audience.

Nile’s work in the CHIC Organization and his productions for artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross, and Madonna have sold over 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide while his trendsetting collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Keith Urban, Disclosure, Sam Smith and Lady Gaga reflect the vanguard of contemporary music.

An American singer, songwriter and composer, Melody Gardot appeared on the jazz scene more than ten years ago. She has already performed many sold-out concerts at l’Olympia in Paris and several successful tours in France, which have made her a must-see artist. Revealed in 2008 with Worrisome Heart and established as a jazz diva in 2009 with the album My One and Only Thrill, Melody likes to blend folk, blues, bossa nova, R’n’B and pop with her vocal jazz.
In 2020, she revealed Sunset in the Blue, her fifth studio album. In this work, which rapidly became a platinum disc, Melody Gardot collaborated with the dream team from My One and Only Thrill, i.e. producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock), arranger and composer Vince Mendoza (Björk, Robbie Williams, Elvis Costello) and legendary engineer Al Schmitt (Frank Sinatra, Joao Gilberto, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney).
Her latest album, Entre Eux Deux, was released in 2022. Having performed with many prestigious names such as Ibrahim Maalouf, Antonio Zambujo and Sting on other occasions, this album was a fully collaborative work recorded with Brazilian pianist Philippe Powell.
