On Mondays, the Culture of the “World” service offers you its choices in terms of music.
The Music section team offers you a selection of concerts and festivals all over France, a very partial reflection of a resumption of musical activity in the fields of rock, pop, jazz, music classical, soul, electro, chanson, or so-called world music.
Nada Surf at the Bataclan, in Paris on May 30, and on tour in France until June 13
On March 11, 2020, five days before President Macron’s announcement of the first confinement, the American group Nada Surf gave two concerts in a row at La Cigale, in Paris, which are remembered. Postponed twice since (due to the health situation), the return to France of the American alternative rock trio, led by singer and guitarist Matthew Caws, gives the impression of symbolically closing – or so we hope – a strange parenthesis.
With a tour of nine dates (already passed by Caen, Nantes, Bordeaux…) including this Monday evening May 30 at the Bataclan, in Paris, and which continues in Grenoble on 31, Aix-en-Provence (June 1 ) , Orléans (2nd) and Lille (13th). Augmented on stage by a fourth member on guitar, Matthew Caws, Daniel Lorca (bass) and Ira Elliot (drums) have the advantage of drawing from a large reservoir of power pop classics accumulated since the mid-1990s, such as Always Love, Popular, Blonde On Blonde, Rushing… as well as those from their excellent latest album, Never Not Together, released in 2020. Franck Colombani
Bataclan, in Paris, on May 30; La Belle Electrique, in Grenoble, on the 31st; 6MIC, in Aix-en-Provence, on June 1; The Astrolabe, in Orleans, on the 2nd; L’Aéronef, in Lille, on the 13th. Opening act: John Vanderslice.

Pour certains, l’Américain David Sanborn est le saxophoniste qui joue le thème principal des films de la série policière cinématographique L’Arme fatale – musiques des quatre films composées par Michael Kamen, Eric Clapton et Sanborn. Pour d’autres, il est instrumentiste sur de nombreux albums du rock et de la pop, dont certains du Paul Butterfield Blues Band, de Todd Rundgren, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Franks, Elton John, Steely Dan, Roger Waters… Aux Etats-Unis, les téléspectateurs de la chaîne NBC le connaissent aussi pour avoir été l’animateur de l’émission musicale Night Music, de 1988 à 1990.
For others, he is one of the jazz soloists whose name is associated with those of Gil Evans, Larry Coryell, Jaco Pastorius, John McLaughlin, John Scofield… And whose important personal discography, since 1975, oscillates between classical jazz and advances towards pop, Latin jazz, and a touch of funk. An often inventive improviser, sensitive in the register of the ballad, incisive on a fast tempo, David Sanborn will be at La Seine musicale, for his only concert in France this summer. With the excellent pianist Geoff Keezer, Ben Williams on double bass, and drummer Billy Kilson. Sylvain Siclier
