2/23/2010 Haddonfield


Sunday, February 23, 2020 – 2:00 to 4:30 p.m.


Founded in 1988, the band is made up of four instruments: trombone, clarinet, piano and  washboard. They have been widely successful around the world due to this unique combination of players which bring out something new to those standards we have come to love so well.

Daniel Barda, the band’s founder and leader, is actually a symphonic conductor, dedicating himself as often as possible to his other passion:  traditional jazz. In the latter style of music, his trombone method is both relaxed and full of vitality. A jazz magazine poll named him best


The church is located near the center of town, just south of Kings Highway on Warwick Road. Tri-State Jazz Society concerts are held in Fellowship Hall, a large performance space with good acoustics and an excellent piano. There is a free parking lot and the church is two blocks from the PATCO station.

French “New Orleans” trombonist. In the United States, he is often compared with James Archey, Turk Murphy and Kid Ory, three great North American jazz figures.

A unique clarinet player, Alain Marquet is stylistically influenced by the sounds of Johnny Dodds and Sidney Bechet from the 1920s.  He performs with a round and colorful sonority, playing supple phrases always full of sophisticated embroideries – always filled with inspiration and musicality. Above all he plays with a beautiful and strong execution.

Pianist Philippe Carment is already one of the best “stride” pianists in the world. His breathtaking playing combines technicality and precision with a fantastic physical and mental enthusiasm. His left hand provides the bass lines with such control that it is not necessary for PARIS WASHBOARD to need the services of a bass player! His idols: James P. Johnson, Fats Waller, and Art Tatum.

Charles Prevost plays a real washboard made of corrugated iron on which he rubs with thimbles on his fingers, combined with cymbals and wood-blocks. Charles brings wit and humor to his music, placing him among the best European washboard specialists. His musicianship integrates him perfectly into the group.

"The washboard … is a lovely alternative to the trap kit, being light, mobile, and less likely to overwhelm a delicate soloist or ensemble.  It stays in the treble register and offers a delighted commentary to what horns and piano are doing, giving its own slightly more emphatic version of wire brush work.  Charles is subtle without being inaudible, witty without being jokey; he never gets in the way but he adds so much."

- Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives

The Paris Washboard concert is made possible by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
