Sala Vanni, h. 21:15

Born in Martinique in December 1984, Grégory Privat is the son of pianist José Privat, known for his participation in the internationally recognized Caribbean group, Malavoi. Attracted by the piano at a very young age, he took private lessons from the age of six and devoted himself for 10 years to a classical apprenticeship before turning to improvisation techniques and jazz.

Following his participation in the Montreux Jazz Festival and the Martial Solal Competition, he released his first album Ki Koté in 2011. It is with the 2013 album Tales of Cyparis, inspired by the story of Louis-Auguste Cyparis, the only prisoner who survived the Mountain Pelée eruption in 1902 and was hired by the Barnum Circus, that Grégory Privat begins to be considered one of the most prominent musicians on the new jazz scene. A status confirmed by the release in January 2015 of his third album Luminescence duet with Sonny Troupé, faithful partner and great master of Gwoka music. The album is named at the 2015 Victoires du Jazz in the category « revelation of the year, Frank-Ténot prize”.

During the same year, Grégory is the new piano player in the Liberetto quartet of Swedish bass player Lars Danielsson, who encourages him to sign with the label ACT: the album Family Tree of his first trio (Tilo Bertholo, drums and Linley Marthe, bass) is released on the prestigious label in October 2016. Three years later, in search of freedom and artistic independence, Grégory creates his own label Buddham Jazz, produces and records the album Soley in 2020 with Chris Jennings on bass and Tilo Bertholo on drums. In 2022, Gregory Privat released the album Yonn, which means “One” in Creole: it is the first time the Martinican pianist has made a solo piano album. On February, 2024, the new trio album Phoenix is released on the Buddham Jazz label, and in March he won the prestigious Prix Django Reinhardt from the Académie du Jazz as French musician of the year.
