The history of jazz is marked by accidental, occasional or planned meetings that bring musicians to play together in concerts, jam sessions or recordings. Baptiste Herbin and Massimo Morganti, connected by a common acquaintance, is an example, as they perform together for the first time on Visioninmusica’s stage.

Baptiste Herbin, originally from Chartres, studied under Riccardo Del Fra at the Conservatoire in Paris, and then began appearing in the local vibrant jazz scene. There he met André Ceccarelli during his sessions at the jazz club Duc des Lombards. They recorded the album Brother Stoon together, in quartet with Pierre de Bethmann and Sylvain Romano, with guests Jean Toussaint and Dimitri Dourantonis. His second album Interférences – in quintet with Benjamin Henocq, Maxime Fougères, Sylvain Romano and Renaud Gensane – was released in 2015. The album Dreams and connection (2016), recorded with Ali Jackson, Darryl Hall and Eduardo Farias resonates with alluring Brazilian atmospheres. His music and style are influenced by Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderley, Ornette Coleman, Maceo Parker, John Coltrane, traditional music from Madagascar, but also by classical composers such as Debussy, Ravel and Bach.

The pieces of Dreams and Connection will feature in the concert held by Baptiste Herbin and the Massimo Morganti Quartet. Massimo Morganti studied at the Conservatorio Rossini in Pesaro and at the Berklee College in Boston. Since then, he has undertaken an intense concert activity and he has been teaching jazz trombone at the conservatories of Rovigo and Perugia. He has collaborated with small and big orchestras and with some of the major Italian and international artists, like Kenny Wheeler, Bob Brookmeyer, Bob Mintzer, Mike Stern, Fabrizio Bosso, Javier Girotto, Gianluca Petrella, Gianluigi Trovesi, Cristina Zavalloni, Gabriele Mirabassi, Enrico Rava, Aldo Romano, Paolo Fresu and many others.

Visioninmusica is proud to host this unprecedented programme, in which Morganti and Herbin will perform each other’s pieces.
