RENAUD GARCIA-FONS


 

 


LA VIE DEVANT recorded with David Venitucci on accordion et Stephan Caracci on vibes and drums is available since Feb 2017


From the time he began playing the double bass at age 16, Renaud Garcia-Fons saw possibilities in this instrument to explore all the styles interested him classical, jazz, Persian, Indian, South American from the world over.

Driven by new ideas and the talent to translate them into compositions, he virtually reinvented the way the instrumentcould be played. The result: an altogether new sound an amalgam of double bass, cello, violin, guitar, lute, oud, and more that exceeds any conventional idea of playing the double bass

"Renaud is not a double bass player. He just uses the double bass for something else. He is the music.”

"Renaud Garcia-Fons brings a rare passion and understanding to the bass. His approach is pure genius, seen in the way he styles his pizzicato and in the manner he opens the arco to encompass melodic and improvisatory richness." Jerry D'Souza
