Charly Ménassé, born in Marseilles in 1959, was immersed in jazz from an early age, thanks to his musician father. By the age of 20, he was learning drums at the Dante Agostini school and jazz at the conservatoire. His career took him from the Achille Zavatta circus to Parisian clubs, where he collaborated with renowned artists such as Didier Lockwood. He founded the group R.N.B. and became drummer for Bernie Bonvoisin. With a passion for the Beatles and jazz, he formed the group Fab Swing in 2010. In addition to his musical career, he is the author of several educational books on drums and the cajon.

Olivier Hutman, French pianist, composer and arranger born in 1954, discovered his passion for jazz through Oscar Peterson. After debuting with Moravagine and Chute Libre, he went on to make a name for himself in a variety of musical projects, winning the Prix Boris Vian in 1984 for his album "Six Songs". His eclectic career has led him to explore Creole, African and film music, receiving several awards for his soundtracks. Heir to such legends as Bill Evans and Herbie Hancock, his subtle, dynamic playing distinguishes him as both sideman and passionate leader, collaborating with a host of renowned artists.

Philippe Leiba, bassist and double bass player, has made his mark on the French music scene alongside artists such as Dany Brillant and Henri Tachan. His talents range from contemporary music to jazz and world music. He has shone alongside Sean Gourley, Jean-Michel Pilc, and in electro-jazz projects such as Le 7eme Gnome. His career has also led him to collaborate with Brazilian artists such as Elza Soares and Nazaré Pereira. Now based in Corsica, he continues to delight audiences alongside numerous local artists.

- Second part: Jérôme Etcheberry Swingband with Jérôme Etcheberry (trumpet), Vincent Bourgeix (piano), Raphaël Dever (double bass) and David Grebil (drums):

Jérôme Etcheberry, trumpeter, singer, arranger and composer, has traced his musical path from his studies at the Conservatoire to soloist in the Air Force Jazz Band and member of Les Haricots Rouges. Based in Paris, he has collaborated with many renowned artists and led several bands, including the Hoozee Foozee band and the Swingberries. Currently at the helm of "Satchmocracy", he pays tribute to Louis Armstrong with his critically acclaimed album of the same name. Winner of several awards, his work bears witness to his commitment to and passion for jazz.
