The Lebanese trumpet player shares a beautiful history with Montreux. It was here, in 2017, that he was spotted by Quincy Jones. Ibrahim Maalouf then paid tribute to the legendary producer at his 85th birthday celebrations at the Montreux Jazz Club and joined him on stage to revisit Michael Jackson’s classics. A daring composer and true showman, he draws equally upon jazz, classical, pop and oriental sounds. In the refined spirit of his latest album 40 Mélodies, more than ever centred on his trumpet playing and his sense of melody, Ibrahim Maalouf invites the public to explore his sonic mixtures during a joint concert with François Delporte, his faithful friend and guitarist for more than 10 years.
