Producer, musical director, composer and arranger Frédéric Viale is at present a must on the French music scene. An eclectic musician, he offers through his compositions a mixture of jazz with Latin origins, a melodious and inspired form of jazz. He is often considered the most gifted accordeonist in his generation.

A student of Lucien Galliano until age 17, he is self taught in improvisation, harmony, rhythm and composition.

In 2003 Frédéric recorded his first album “Paradise” on the Elabeth label. In 2008 he recorded his latest album “Lames Latines” in Brazil and in Paris with some of the capital’s best musicians. He has played since in China and prominent jazz festivals across Europe.
