First Monday Jazz: the Vent Fort [The Bridge #7] ensemble

Join us for a special First Monday Jazz event, featuring the Vent Fort [The Bridge #7] ensemble.

Jazz was the original “world music,” long before this label became widespread.

In recent years, many French and American musicians have expressed a renewed interest in experiencing the musical and sociomusical realities of their transatlantic counterparts. Unfortunately, these collaborations usually do not extend beyond a few concerts, a tour, or a recording, due to the lack of adequate networks and resources.

The Bridge creates transatlantic opportunities for deep exchange, production, and diffusion between French and American musicians via collaborative projects.

Tonight's Vent Fort [The Bridge #7] ensemble features:

Magic Malik ~ flute, voice
Guillaume Orti ~ saxophones
Jeb Bishop ~ trombone
Fredéric Bargeon Briet ~ double bass
Tyshawn Sorey ~ drums, trombone

This performance is part of the 2016/17 Logan Center for the Arts Jazz Residency.

This residency is a collaboration of M-Base Concepts, Inc., the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts and Arts + Public Life at the University of Chicago, Rebuild Foundation, and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events in partnership with the Jazz Institute of Chicago.
