Artist Portrait

Richard Galliano

acc, *1950 FR, Le Cannet
Musician / Composer / Arranger of Jazz

Accordionist, composer, arranger, leader. Born: December 12, 1950, Cannes, France. In 1991, on the advice of Astor Piazzolla he met in 1983, Richard Galliano is back on his roots, returning to the traditional repertoire of waltz, java, tangos and ballads he had long ignored. Reviving the spirit of Tony Murena and Gus Viseur, it allows the accordion to get rid of its old image by working on rhythm conception, changing harmonies, which acclimate to jazz.
