Sign in to view read count
The Life and Work of Barre Phillips is the subject of an exhibition at Nice's Bibliotheque Louis Nucra, running from December 11 2009 to February 6 2010. Titled “40 ans de cration musicale", the exhibition looks at aspects of the great bassist's work since moving from America to France in 1969, including documentation of many tours, recordings and more. Films and performance are also part of the programme, with Barre Phillips giving four Saturday afternoon concerts. On December 12, Barre gives a solo concert. The performance on December 19 is headlined “Barre Phillips et la danse" and is a collaboration with choreographer and improviser Emmanuelle Ppin. On January 16 the subject is “Barre Phillips et le cinema" with special reference to Barre's work with film-maker Robert Kramer. Jazz is the subject of the February 6 concert and features a Phillips quartet with Laurent Charles (saxophones), Patrice Soletti (guitar) and Franois Rossi (drums).

Barre's ECM recordings include Music From Two Basses (with Dave Holland, 1971), Mountainscapes (with John Surman, 1976), Three Day Moon (with Terje Rypdal, 1978), Aquarian Rain (with Alain Joule, 1991), Time Will Tell (with Paul Bley and Evan Parker, 1994), and Angles of Repose (with Joe and Mat Maneri, 2002).

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
