I Put a Spell on You

When ? Tuesday March 29 at 7 p.m.

Body & Soul Consort is a young ensemble of passionate musicians whose vocation is to combine two musical styles: baroque music and jazz. Their first album I Put a Spell on You navigates between 17th century composers (Dowland, Purcell, Landi, Eccles) and jazz standards composed between 1940 and 1960. This set will take you on a poetic and passionate journey between the old world, the old Europe which sighs and languishes before the bitter cruelty of love… and the new world, the young America of the 20th century, full of nonchalance and passion!
