”It’s true, he’s really great!”:  words spoken by Mathieu Amalric in the film “Barbara” (2017). Who is the barefoot musician he is talking about?

A very open outlook is one of the features that most characterises Vincent Peirani. An accordionist with a classical training, equally at home in the worlds of French chanson, world music and pop, he has made a name for himself in recent years in the field of jazz and improvisation.

On his latest album, with his group Living Being, he integrates into his already very unusual musical world the powerful sound of rock music, with several themes borrowed from the legendary Seventies rock group, Led Zeppelin.

With this wonderfully close-knit quintet, the sound and dynamics on this album are incomparable, with a fine sense of phrasing and a gentle melancholy in their rendering of French chanson, admirable inspiration in their jazz, sheer brute force when it comes to rock music, and nobility in the classical sphere: these are some of the facets of this “Chamber Rock Music Orchestra”, as Vincent Peirani likes to call it.
Music of rare delicacy and with an equally rare depth of emotion, supported by a lively and elegant ensemble, capable of creating the most diaphanous textures and of soaring in strong, wild flights of fancy.
