Moncef wishes everyone a happy new year! May 2008 be a prosperous one for you and yours. Fresh off his 5-date engagement at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola / Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York, Moncef is back in Switzerland for a couple of club performances. You can catch him at the Chorus Club in Lausanne and at Moods in Zurich, on January 25 and 29, 2008. Moncef will present his new Swiss trio consisting of Antoine Ogay on bass and Philippe Staehli on drums, so come and check out this swinging new combo if you’re in the area. You can also watch a new video of Moncef on his YouTube Channel via the “Media” section of this website. The 9-minute movie will serve as an EPK (electronic press kit) to present Moncef’s career as well as his past and future projects. The video includes footage of Moncef’s concert at the 2007 Montreux Jazz Festival and from the acclaimed documentary Return To Gorée, which opened the 15th African Diaspora Film Festival in New York City to a sold-out audience and critical acclaim back in November. The film will soon open in more major U.S. cities, so stay tuned!
