When a guitarist goes to play, for a blues dance party, he calls a friend to come and play with him. From a ephemeral concert, a duo was born : here are the Blues and Bones, coming from a 2017 evening, by a cold night, in the city of Toulouse, France !!!

Eric Pollet (Trombone & drums)   Bernard Cavasa (Guitar & vocals)
Eric Pollet starts music at 7. He discovers the joy of the trombone and the electric bass. He decides to start improvised music and jazz. At 17 he starts jazz classes at the Conservatory of Toulouse. In the meantime, he discovers the job of wind instruments repairman that he will practice for several years at the Atelier des vents in Toulouse.
Meanwhile, he encounters a lot of musicians from different horizons and he joins several formations ranging from jazz hard bop to Funk bands and world music (El gato negro y su tropical combo) with which he went on tour in Mexico in 2014.
After gradually discovering live and “amplified” music, he went back to the basics with street music by integrating several formations purely acoustic dedicated to perform especially in the street, with the aim of being close to the public. On this occasion, he enlarges his panel of instruments and took up the tuba and the sousaphone.
  After trying piano and saxophone, Bernard felt in love at the age of 15 with the guitar. In a finger-picking style, he plays traditional delta blues, Piedmont blues, and american folk music during 10 years. Listening for jazz since ever, he started then swing-dancing where he became a world renowned dancer. Mixing his new passion with the music, he started to play swing music, introducing finger picking style into traditionnal jazz. In love with swing, early jazz, New-Orleans, Ragtime and blues, he plays in different groups (the Raggedy Junkers ...) and love to mix the styles.
