Improvisation is not just a technique for Cyrille Aimée, it’s a way of life. Among countless accolades, Aimée has won the Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition and the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition.
The acclaimed vocalist ventured from singing on street corners in Europe to dazzling audiences at the world’s most prestigious jazz festivals; from sneaking out to sing in gypsy encampments in her native France to acting on Broadway; from braving the notoriously tough audiences at New York’s Apollo Theatre to being called a “rising star in the galaxy of jazz singers” by the New York Times.
This tour marks Pink Floyd co-founder and drummer Nick Mason’s first performances in North America since Pink Floyd’s July 18, 1994 concert at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey as part of the Division Bell Tour.
“With the help of some like-minded friends, I have embarked on a voyage of discovery of the music that was the launch pad of Pink Floyd and my working life,” says Mason. “It seems too early to retire, and I missed the interaction with other musicians.”
