Neighborhood Concert: Gregoire Maret Quartet
Gregoire Maret smashes the stereotype that the harmonica is to be played while gathered around a campfire. In the hands of this Geneva-born virtuoso, the instrument can be lyrical and lush or pungent and powerful. Maret’s soulful ballad interpretations and breathlessly swinging renditions of up-tempo favorites will certainly change the way you think about the harmonica. Maret has performed with jazz and pop greats, from Pat Metheny and Herbie Hancock to Youssou N’Dour and Meshell Ndegeocello.
