The Bridge intends to form a network for exchange, production and diffusion, to build a transatlantic bridge that will be crossed on a regular basis by French and American musicians as part of collaborative projects. And, in addition to the scheduled projects, encourage meetings and relationships between creative musicians and perpetuate them. In other words: to give them the times and spaces to join and rejoin on both sides of the ocean and to deepen their exchanges.
The Bridge #2.2 – experimental residencies have been made possible through the Jazz & New Music, a program of FACE Foundation, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.
This is a free concert.
This is the first time I came into contact with this group, The Bridge. I like the idea of cross-cultural collaboration of jazz musicians. This performance turned out to be quite inspirational to me. I am a jazz musician and improv is my favorite part of that art. We all got our fill at this concert, which was 100 % improvisational. Very interesting concept and very fascinating to see it unfold among a group of four musicians on stage. I could see how they developed their lines together. There were also different underlying approaches to the improv, some more rhythmic, others based on melodic grounds. Judging from the audience, I was not the only one who sat and listened and watched, riveted and wondering what was going to happen next and where the journey would end. We all went along and liked the trip!
