The new sound of the early 20th century, which was to be identified as ‘jazz’, was immediately new and popular, a product of its time linked to that era’s transformations: a fortunate collision of cultures, at the time of the second industrial revolution, the development of mass transportation, the democratization of artistic and instrumental practices… But nowadays, in the era of globalization, in these postmodern and gluttonous times, what would “the new thing” sound like? That is the impossible question these four improvisers – each with their own pronounced, bold, and tempered character – will try to answer by playing.
