A funky, rocking Parisian electro-jazz five-piece dance band No Jazz is set to re-define the genre with its syncopated, danceable rhythms, words, modalities and melodies from around the world. It all began in 2000, with the meeting of five musicians ready for anything, proud of their multiple respective experiences but determined to explore new musical territories.
Philippe Balatier, aka Balat, keyboardist and sampler, fan of James Brown and of the Propellerheads, and composer of ad soundtracks. Virtuoso jazz trumpeter Sylvain Gontard, aka SilverSly, who joined the group in June of 2008. Pascal Reva, aka Bilbo, bassist and drummer. Philippe Sellam, aka Slam, saxophonist who’s accompanied the likes of Gil Evans, Paco Sery, Roy Hargrove, and last but not least the guest star HKB Finn, talented spoken word artist and singer from London who embodies all the worldly influences that are present in that cosmopolitan city.
