Live Music With A Captivating Duo
Nov 21, 2019

Restaurants St Barth

The waterfront restaurant Baz Bar features Sofia Rei and JC Maillard for the week of Thanksgiving. Currently on tour to promote their latest album, Keter, this avant-garde duo will play every night from Monday, November 25 thru Sunday, December 1, starting at 9pm.

Relax and enjoy the atypical songs pulled from such genres as contemporary jazz to Caribbean vibrations. Their inventive arrangements showcase the SazBass, an unusual electro-acoustic instrument conceived and created especially for JC Maillard by French luthier Hervé Prudent.

JC Maillard, known as Mbutu, is a French composer, guitarist, and pianist, as well as a songwriter and

musical arranger, who is originally from Pointe-à-Pitre in Guadeloupe. After collaborations with various Caribbean artists, including the band Kassav, JC Maillard founded Grand Baton, an Afro-Antilles fusion band that plays progressive rock and jazz, featuring Thierry Arpino on drums.

Several years ago, Lisa Fischer (backup singer with The Rolling Stones and seen in the Academy Award-winning film, Twenty Feet From Stardom) joined the band to create “Ms. Lisa Fischer & Grand Baton.” The band and the singer continue to collaborate and perform together.

This week, the live music creates some especially magical evenings. Grab a table on the edge of the Port of Gustavia or inside the bar to really be part of the scene!
