"MEZCAL JAZZ UNIT" plays its own creative music, with mixed influences, in phase with the main actual french jazz streams.
Here, the word "jazz" has to be understood with the largest signification, meaning: no musical conformism, open mind, integration of other musical streams, adventures...

Some particularities of the music played by "MEZCAL JAZZ UNIT" are given by the mediterranean feeling of the musicians, the reminiscences of traditional melodies , a real attraction for oriental music, a rocky energy, a sense of humor, and a mix between emotional introspection and a very specifical latin expressive attitude.

"MEZCAL JAZZ UNIT" is a "live" band.
Its music is based on pleasure and communion between musicians. The ability to communicate with the public is for this band a priority: as important than technical and musical performances.

The band "MEZCAL JAZZ UNIT" , leaded by Emmanuel de Gouvello (bass, composition) lives near Montpellier-South of France, since 1986.

"MEZCAL JAZZ UNIT" performed for several tours in the following countries: France, Austria, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovaquia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Bielorussia, Hungary, Roumania, Moldavia, Ukrania, Maroco, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Azerbaidjan, India, Vietnam...
