Rodolphe Lauretta’s Raw Trio released its first album. Raw illustrates well the sound of this chordless trio which consists of a saxophone, a double bass and a drums. They display deep grooves and a powerful sound, an intimate sense of detail along with raw energy.

Born in Amiens, France, Rodolphe Lauretta started music as a teenager, first as a self taught. He played in local reggae, funk and rock bands. He opened for reggae greats Burning Spears and the Gladiators with the band Ouroub. He then attended the jazz workshop and the big band classes at the Amiens conservatory of music. When he moved to Paris, he began following jazz classes at various conservatories, and started to play in the main jazz clubs of the capital (Sunset , Le Baiser Salé, New Morning) with his bands and as a sideman.

The Raw trio was founded in 2012 during an informal session. After a promising first concert, the band has been able to develop the music during a residency at Bab Ilo Jazz club in Paris. Although it’s rooted in the vast tradition of jazz, the sound of the trio is resolutely contemporary, convoking the spirit of rock, hip-hop, and funk. Those influences are never forced but rather come out naturally in the compositions.
