    Considéré comme le meilleur contrebassiste jazz de Belgique, Sal La Rocca débarque sur la scène de la Ferme Madelonne. Le jazz qu’il nous propose est à la fois personnel et tout à fait moderne. Il collabore avec le guitariste Lorenzo Di Maio qui combine de manière énergique les sons rock et les improvisations jazz. Avec les musiciens de haute volée qui composent son groupe, il nous embarque pour un voyage dans le Swing, le groove, la rigueur et la tendresse Baroudeur du jazz, Sal La Rocca débute comme guitariste rock. A 23 ans, au début des années 80, le jazz lui apparait comme une révélation ! Il quitte la 6 cordes et passe à la contrebasse qu’il explore par lui-même, Paul Chambers lui servant de référence. Il a tourné avec Vaya con Dios, Phil Abraham quartet, Bop and Soul Sextet, Toots Thielemans, Philippe Catherine, Steve Grossman, Lee Konitz…
