Moncef is turning 50!
Those who know him will find it hard to believe, but Moncef is turning 50! To celebrate, Moncef will give a very special performance with an All-Star cast of his favorite musicians at the prestigious Salle du Régent in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, on Saturday, August 20th. The stellar line-up will consist of fellow Swiss phenom Grégoire Maret (Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Pat Metheny) on the harmonica, England’s Andy Barron (Kenny Wheeler, Manu Katché) on drums, New Yorker trumpetist James Zollar (Duke Ellington Orchestra, Wynton Marsalis), along with Switzerland’s finest in the form of bass tandem Antoine Ogay and BänzOester, as well as Stefano Saccon on saxophone. This promises to be a grand celebration of the first 50 years of Moncef ‘s life and music career, and we invite those of you who will be in Switzerland on that date to take part in the festivities! For details, please see the “Tours” section of this site. Also announced, a series of three dates at Club Chorus later this year in December with special guests HaroldDanko, Grégoire Maret, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Bänz Oester, and Andy Barron, to celebrate Moncef reaching the half-century mark and the first 30 years of his remarkable career. On this occasion Moncef and his team would like to thank you for your support through the years. We look forward to continuing to bring quality music and projects for your entertaining pleasure in the future!
