Marc Ducret Trio

Jez Nelson presents a concert by French guitar virtuoso Marc Ducret, given at London's Vortex Jazz Club. Best known to UK audiences as a member of New York saxophonist Tim Berne's groups Big Satan and Science Friction, Ducret performs with his own high-intensity trio, featuring Bruno Chevillon on bass and drummer Eric Echampard. The three have played together for more than 10 years and Ducret calls the group 'my laboratory'.

Marc Ducret was born in Paris in 1957. Self-taught, he began playing with dance and folk bands in the mid-1970s and his career took off after he won the Django Reinhardt Prize in 1987. Ducret is now in high demand on both sides of the Atlantic; his collaborators have included Michel Portal, Miroslav Vitous, Django Bates, Adam Nussbaum and David Sanborn.
