Gérard Prévost


Bassist - Director - Arranger

  • When I choose a mic, the most important aspect for me is obviously the sound quality. Next is the mounting. This has to be reliable all the time

    Ludovic Lanen asked me to be involved in the development of this new mic and what I'd like to do now is to pass on my satisfaction with the result.

    The acoustics and the attachment method for the double bass are going to make this mic one of the new audio standard setters for double bass mics.

Biography

Gérard Prévost had his first taste of rock with Chaussettes Noires, and of jazz with Miles Davis. He then made the natural progression to jazz-rock fusion in the 1970s (ZAO, Transit Express, David Rose, etc.).

Accompanying a number of singer-songwriters, such as Les Enfants Terribles, Maxime Le Forestier and Yves Simon, gave him the opportunity to meet Coluchee and found Le Grand Orchestre du Splendid.

In the 1980s he became director and arranger for Renaud, Odeurs, Bijou, and finally, the Gipsy Kings, with whom he worked for 14 years.

In 2002 he returned to the jazz scene, starting a trio with Stéphane Guéry (guitarist), who introduced him to Arbon. And the journey continues with studio and live work. He was involved in the recording of two of Arbon's albums and the subsequent tours, Etre et avoir été, in 2005, and Il pleut au Paradis, in 2007.
