Daniel Yvinec


Bassist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, Daniel Yvinec – who transforms himself into Yvinek when he devotes his energies to electronica – is remarkable for his atypical and cosmopolitan career path.

Yvinec conceives his own projects with independence of mind, either alone or in the company of talented acolytes

Orchestre National de Jazz: Piazzolla!

Read "Orchestre National de Jazz: Piazzolla!" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

The Argentinian composer, bandoneón player and tango revolutionary Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) was no stranger to jazz. As a music student in Paris in the mid-1950s, he was inspired by the joyous improvisation he witnessed in the effervescent Left Bank jazz scene.
