Jazz saxophone lovers in Bonn have a late Christmas present coming their way in the form of French virtuoso Christine Corvisier. Hailing from Perpignan, Corvisier started playing saxophone at the age of 14 and quickly integrated into bands like the JMSU Big Band (directed by JF. Jacomino) with whom she went on frequent European tours
After moving to Germany in 2010 she founded a new quintet with some of the best musicians of the Cologne jazz scene – quickly establishing herself beyond the borders of the region as a virtuoso and, at the same time, melodic improviser and composer. She’s already appeared in Dottendorf (in 2016) and those with a good memory might remember her from 2013’s Jazztube. On Friday she will be appearing as a 5tett along with Marin Schulte (Guitar) Sebastian Scobel (Piano) David Andres (Bass) and Thomas Sauerborn (Drums).
Below is a taster of the lady in action, but for the real thing make a date:
