POWERFUL AND SWINGING TRADITIONAL DOUBLE BASS PLAYING
Powerful and swinging, Australian bass player Sébastien Girardot has built a highly personal style on a foundation of classical training and early experience with New Orleans style groups. He is in wide demand across Europe and has appeared at the continents’ foremost jazz festivals and clubs alongside musicians such as Leroy Jones, Harry Allen, Cecile Mclorin Salvant, Tcha Limberger, Dan Barrett, Evan Christopher, Ken Peplowski and Fapy Lafertin. Mr. Girardot has also developed his international reputation by recording with some iconic jazz labels including GHB, Jazz Crusade, Fremeaux, Jazzology, Camille Productions, Black & Blue and Lejazzetal Records. Sebastien performed on albums that were awarded the Prix de l’Académie du Jazz (2017), the Prix du Hot Club de France (2015,2007,2006), Jazz Magazine’s Choc de l’Annee (2015) and the Sunday Times Jazz Album of the Year (2014).
Since moving to Paris, Sebastien has developed into an extremely versatile musician, equally at home in many early 20th Century musical styles from blues to swing, biguine to choro and Gypsy jazz. A founding member of Django à la Créole, his other current regular projects include La Section Rhythmique, Three Blind Mice, the Tcha Limberger Trio and the Michel Pastre Quintet.
Sébastien was also part of PBS’s recent performing arts series in a documentary entitled “From Harlem to Montmartre”.
