In addition to collaborations with Philip Catherine, fusion groups such as Alka Celtes Air, Darwin Case or Musicazur, Fabrizio Cassol, Michel Herr and his tentet, the violinist Alexandre Cavaliere launched his own project Alexandre Cavaliere quintet: he makes us discover a mixture of gypsy jazz, be-bop and modern jazz, surrounded by two guitars, a double bass and a piano.These stories of exceptional talents discovered at an early age are probably appropriate in the case of violinist Alexandre Cavaliere. At the age of 12, he met Didier Lockwood and Babik Reinhardt who invited him to Paris, infusing his career with a dazzling departure. Then everything is linked naturally. Alexandre skims international scenes with his father’s group and collects an impressive list of performances: at the Princess Grace Theater in Monaco, in the first part of Michel Jonasz at the Olympia, at the ‘Jazz Espoo’ festival in Finland or, thanks to Dorado Schmitt, New York, during the Django Reinhardt festival at Birdland. Today, he is back with a new project of which he is the leader, Alexandre Cavaliere quintet, which mixes Gypsy jazz music in his heart (gypsy jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt) to the idiom be-bop and modern jazz through influences like Dorado Schmitt, or Bireli Lagrene.
