Artist at the crossroads of genres, the tubist Thomas Leleu, elected "Instrumental soloist revelation of the year" at the Victoires de la Musique 2012, explores in Born to Groove a music in his image, without borders! In this new album, each track is accompanied by instrumental themes with bass and drums, where jazz fusion alternates with improvisation, swing, bossa, groove or even world jazz. If he composed the majority of the tracks on this recording, the musician has also surrounded himself with his accomplices from The Tuba's Trip: Laurent Elbaz, Lamine Diagne, Sam Favreau, Philippe Jardin, Jérôme Buigues, as well as Jean-Luc Di Fraya and the electro group French Fuse. Together, they decompartmentalize genres and enthusiastically explore classical, jazz, pop and even world music. A way to reveal all the richness of his instrument: the tuba!
