Willy DeVille Trio

Tue, 05. Nov 2002, 9.45 PM | Roots & Funk
Festsaal Messe Basel

A programme of contrasts, but with a common denominator in relation to various facettes of Afro-American music: that’s how one could describe this evening with «Kool & the Gang» and the «unplugged» Trio of Willy DeVille. Even though the rock’n’roll gypsy DeVille originally became famous in the «New Wave» of the Seventies, he has his roots in the great tradition of the Mississippi blues à la «Muddy Waters» and New York soul à la «Ben E. King».

«Kool & the Gang» on the other hand belong to the pioneers of funk, the jazzy African-American dance and party music in the wake of master «James Brown». An evening full of emotions and forceful grooves!
