GARDEN OF IMPROVISATIONS

After more than fifteen years in the gorgeous setting of the Parc Floral,
the PARIS JAZZ FESTIVAL is writing a new chapter of its rich history
with a new team and a novel artistic concept.

The artistic identity of the PJF has been reinforced with an inquisitive program, open to the reality of jazz, placing the Parc Floral at the center of the stage.

Jazz and its rich musical heritage are represented here in their vibrant colors, with the exploration each weekend of a new TERRITORY.

Every Saturday and Sunday in June and July, from 9:30 am to 6 pm, the main stage—also known as the Delta—will vibrate alongside the natural green theaters (See detailed program below) that surround it, forming a true GARDEN OF IMPROVISATIONS.

In addition to the main concerts, spectators can become the actors of more intimate recitals as part of a large collection of programs that illustrate the bonds between Music and Nature. Stories, fairy tales, improvised performances, musical landscaping, rhythmic dancing…

PROGRAM 2009

Week-end 1 TRANS BELGIAN EXPRESS

Literature, art, music… The time-tested intellectual links between France and Belgium have naturally ebbed and flowed into the jazz sphere. Stronger than ever now that Brussels is the capital of Europe, these strong musical bonds preside over audacious creations.

Saturday, June 6

3 pm
Robin VERHEYEN
with Bill Carrothers, Nic Thys and Dré Pallemaerts
A childhood in Turnhout, brilliant musical studies in Amsterdam, an extended stay in Paris, numerous collaborations with Italian, German or Finish players… Now based in New York City, the 26-year old saxophonist epitomizes the internationalization of Belgian jazz. Robin’s eclecticism and inventiveness is perfectly portrayed by his work with his current quartet (including pianist Bill Carrothers), recently relayed by the “Painting Space” album.

4:30 pm
MARIA SCHNEIDER
with the BRUSSELS JAZZ ORCHESTRA
Possibly the greatest arranger in jazz today, often hailed as the natural heir to Gil Evans who nurtured her early career, this Minnesota-born New Yorker has featured her highly original mix of classical and avant-garde jazz with a variety of orchestras over the year, including her own MS Jazz Orchestra. Maria was a logical choice when the BJO—the world-renowned Brussels outfit created fifteen years ago by Frank Vaganée, Marc Godfroid and Serge Plume on the ruins of the Belgian Radio and Television Jazz Orchestra— was asked to open this new season at the Parc Floral.

Sunday, June 7

3 pm
Diederik WISSELS
Trio with Christophe Wallemme and Jan de Haas
Better-known for his association with vocalist David Linx, this Holland-born and Belgian-raised pianist is a perfect example of the French connection with Benelux countries. After graduating for the famed Berklee School of Music, Diederik worked with Chet Baker and Toots Thielemans before treading a more personal path. A refined pianist and profound composer, he’s typical of a school of European jazz artists that show their debt to the classical tradition.

4:30 pm
OCTURN
meets MAGIC MALIK
For over a decade, this Brussels-based collective has defined its own musical agenda, stretching the boundaries of jazz through research and experimentation. Their encounter with flutist Magic Malik enables Octurn to reach new creative heights as their respective galaxies flower into unsuspected perspectives that often flirt with the classical avant-garde.

Week-end 2  BLACK IS THE COLOR

The origins of jazz inevitably point back to Africa. The musical blood of the First Continent, creolized with various European sources of influence, ran through the veins of the blues before the capricious flow of jazz sounds altered in time the course of today’s African music. The concerts presented here bear witness to this never-ending artistic exchange.

Saturday, June 13

3 pm
Wasis DIOP

His enlightened collaborations with creators from Japan, Jamaica, Brazil, France, the United States or England make this Senegalese artist a true master of World music. The co-founder of West African Cosmos—a band combining Western and African sounds into Afro-Jazz—has since made his mark at major festivals while making a reputation for himself as a composer for cinema and television. In the wake of his celebrated “Opéra du Sahel,” Wasis is back with an ambitious stage project and new ideas. “Nothing is static in life, he says. The main danger is to stay in the same spot, musically and spiritually. My answer as a musician is to go forward.”

4:30 pm 
Stéphane HUCHARD
« African Tribute to Art Blakey »
After getting his start with an accordion-playing father, this self-taught drummer learned his trade in various rock groups before opting for jazz. Old school, latin or world, equally at ease backing a trio or propelling a big band, Huchard has performed and recorded with the very best (François Jeanneau, Laurent de Wilde, Jacky Terrasson, Stefano di Battista…) before setting off on this Tribute. “Of all the original bebop drummers,” he says, “Art Blakey was the most ‘African’ of all. This project is the result of my unconditional love of Art’s afro-jazz approach, and my passion for African rhythms. I’ve tried to emphasize the fragile link between the African and Afro-American cultures.

Sunday, June 14

3 pm
ABLAYE & THE LINKS

Blind singer Abdoulaye “Ablaye” M’baye was born 28 years ago in a family of Dakar griots. After years of touring with Youssou N’dour and five best-selling albums released in Senegal, Ablaye has bonded with The Links, a tight unit of French musicians hailing from various musical horizons. Along with Ablaye’s poignant vocals, this diversity is the band’s safest passport to originality as they offer a new fusion of jazz, m’balaax and world.

4:30 pm
Cheick Tidiane SECK
“Sabaly Tour”
For the past 25 years, Seck’s superlative playing and skilful arranging has graced numerous recordings by Salif Keita, Joe Zawinul, Graham Haynes, Touré Kunda, Mory Kanté, Hank Jones, and Dee Dee Bridgewater (whose widely acclaimed “Red Earth” set was recorded in Mali under Cheick’s direction). But it is still on his own albums that Seck’s music is presented in all its glory. After “MandinGroove,” recorded in New York, Los Angeles and Paris, “Sabaly” will serve as a basis for Cheick’s kaleidoscopic stage act.

Week-end 3 CIAO ITALIA

The very first jazz recording already bore a strong Italian imprint, as several members of the Original Dixieland Jazz Quartet were of Italian origins. Almost five-score years later, the land of opera music (the genre from which jazz inherited its love of horns) continues to write some of the most romantic jazz pages.

Saturday, June 20

3 pm
Gianluca PETRELLA
INDIGO 4
This trombonist from Bari—a former alumnus of the OFP Orchestra under the direction of Carla Bley—has polished his chops with the greatest (Lester Bowie, Enrico Rava, Steve Swallow, Marc Ducret, Pat Metheny…) and performed at the most prestigious festivals before reaching fame at the head of his Indigo 4 with longtime friends and associates Francesco Bearzatti (sax and clarinet), Paolino Dalla Porta (bass) and Fabbio Accardi (drums). The album they recorded together for Blue Note stands as a monument to their artistic ingeniosity.

4:30 pm
Rita MARCOTULLI
« Us and Them . Homage to Pink Floyd »
Roman pianist Marcotulli has always claimed that her mastery of jazz was tinted by her love of other styles, especially Brazilian music. Yet her deeply emotional playing, as exemplified by the intimate musical pages she composed for various films and choreographies, can escape the bounds of secrecy. She’s willing to prove it here with this all-star tribute to the psychedelic blues-rock of Pink Floyd involving Andy Sheppard (sax), Giovanni Tommaso (upright bass), Matthew Garrison (bass), Fausto Mesolella (guitar), Michele Rabbia (percussion), Alfredo Golino (drums) and Raiz (vocals).

Sunday, June 21

2 pm
Antonello SALIS & Fabrizio BOSSO

Sardinian pianist and accordionist Salis needs no introduction. A self-taught musician, he’s become a mainstay on the international scene where his original approach to jazz has earned him the respect and admiration of his peers. A former member of Quartetto Nuevo—a foursome of accordion masters featuring Richard Galliano, Marcel Azzola and Gianni Coscia—Salis chose to appear with trumpetist Fabrizio Bosso for this carte blanche that opens this year’s Music Day at the Parc Floral.

3 pm
OPEN GATE TRIO • Emmanuel Bex, Francesco Bearzatti et Simon Goubert
Emmanuel Bex (Hammond organ) and his cohorts (saxophone/clarinet and drums) bring a welcome change to the usual keyboard/bass/drums formula. In the wake of their common experience with Glenn Ferris in the BFG Trio, Bex and Goubert went to Italy this time to look for a new partner. Bearzetti, formerly with Enrico Rava and Aldo Romano, brings both freshness and lyricism to a project that has been getting rave reviews everywhere. The music of the Open Gate Trio is characterized by a sense of freedom that gives credit to its name

4:30 pm
MUSICA NUDA
In Italian, the name of this jazz-pop duo means Naked Music. Based on the vocal acrobatics of opera-trained Petra Magoni from Pisa, Musica Nuda revolves around the unusual melodic and rhythmic fabric weaved by bassist extraordinaire Ferruccio Spinetti. Ever since their eponymous first album sent their career skyrocketing in 2004, Petra and Ferruccio have been busy wooing European crowds with their original renderings of standards, their incredible showmanship winning over new adepts wherever they appear.

Week-end 4 BLUE NOTES

It is no secret that Jazz initially came from Blues. A holy howl born of slavery, an antidote to the daily violence, humiliation and social injustice bred by segregation. Scorned by the establishment, shamelessly looted and plundered by the rock industry, blues has managed to stay alive in its own community, but also everywhere its appeal for respect and dignity finds an echo on the planet.

Saturday, June 27

3 pm       
Roland TCHAKOUNTÉ

“To grasp a man’s soul, listen to the feelings that flow from his music,” likes to say Tchakounté. This master of Afro-Blues fell under the spell of John Lee Hooker’s music when still a teenager in Cameroon. Graduating from percussion to the guitar, Roland has made a name for himself in Europe as well as in the United States with his original fusion of African roots and blues influences, singing in Bamiléké, his native language. His original repertoire allows him to address a wide variety of issues, joyful and sad, especially when he describes the neglected state of the First Continent.

4:30 pm   
Joe Louis WALKER

Although he doesn’t hail from Mississippi, Texas or Chicago, San Franciscan Joe Louis Walker is a leading figure on the blues circuit today. Breaking away from a lifestyle that once questioned his survival, this consummate guitarist and vocalist found redemption in the realm of gospel before he set out as a blues laborer in the mid-80’s. Walker rapidly worked his way to the top, recording soulful albums that gave a new edge to the blues. A much sought-after producer, he is first and foremost a terrific performer whose dynamic show will set the Parc Floral on fire.

Sunday, June 28

3 pm       
PURA FE
A living proof of the reality of the cultural melting pot in the American South, this guitarist and vocalist of mixed ancestry (Native American, Italian and Puerto Rican) is an ardent defender of the Tuscacora Indian traditions. « My people were bred together with African slaves on the plantations, she says. This union gave birth to a rich new culture that blended religion, dance and food. » In her vibrant performances, Pura Fe (Pure Faith in Spanish) shows that this mixed culture largely contributed to the birth of the blues, an idiom that occupies a central place in her music.

4:30 pm
J.J. MILTEAU « Soul Conversation »
On the strength of his recent Parisian triumph (two weeks of standing only crowds at the Sunset) in the wake of his latest opus, the world’s leading harmonica player initiates this Conversation built around the vocals of two Afro-American vocalists of note, Michael Robinson and Ron Smyth. You can expect their mix of blues, soul and country-rock to make new adepts as the duo’s soulful vocals, Manu Galvin’s sweet guitar lines and JJ’s acrobatic harp battle at will.

Week-end 5 VIENNA-PARIS

The birthplace of the waltz proved that it was open to other styles when some of its children adopted jazz as their favorite idiom.
Alongside the towering figure of the late Joe Zawinul, we find that of Mathias Rüegg, a peerless creator whose music the Paris Jazz Festival wishes to honor. This Viennese weekend insists on the many connections that bind the Austrian and French capitals.

Saturday July 4

3 pm       
Médéric COLLIGNON • Jus de Bocse Quartet

He’s been called the Rimbaud of jazz, and not only because he shares the same birthplace with the great poet. Both hailing from Charleville-Mézières, Collignon and Rimbaud have a common penchant for nonconformist views, and the same belief in the powers of intuition. “My music is all about my acoustic vision of the world,” says the trumpet/cornet player. With the help of the Jus de Bocse quartet that earned him a well-deserved Victoire du Jazz last year, Collignon is sure to offer an unconventional concert as a tribute to one of his most ardent fans, Mathias Rüegg.

4:30 pm  
VIENNA ART ORCHESTRA

Why did Rüegg call his orchestra Vienna Art? Simply because music has always been Vienna’s forte, and its major contribution to the world of culture. For more than three decades, the Swiss-born Rüegg has shown that large ensemble jazz would retain its relevance as long as it went on looking to the future, without overlooking the tradition. With a changed line up and a new repertoire, the VAO of 2009 merges jazz and classical music into a modernized unity, combining tension and energy into an exciting concept.

Sunday, July 5

3 pm       
RADIO STRING QUARTET
& Klaus PAIER
Their line-up tells it all: a violinist from a small Austrian Valley, another from Salzburg (the city that gave us Mozart), a viola player from Taipei in Taiwan, and a cellist from Zagreb…The Radio String Quartet is both classical and modern, in its sounds and in its goals, especially when it has the intelligence to remember that the accordion is a Viennese invention. With free-reed virtuoso Klaus Paier in the spotlight, the RS Quartet turns into a glorious quintet that delves deeply into the blues to come up with a new kind of European music. No wonder the RSQ name came spontaneously when the Paris Jazz Fest team asked Mathias Rüegg to suggest one of the best Vienna ensembles of today.

4:30 pm
Jean-Christophe CHOLET • DIAGONAL « french touch »
Combining the verticality (its long history) and horizontality (its universality) of jazz, pianist/composer/arranger Cholet suggests a third, diagonal way that can address every musical niche, from traditional sounds to vanguard creations. Drawing their inspiration mainly from the European repertoire, Cholet and his Tentet have revisited in their own inimitable style the human and musical landscapes of France (“French Touch”), the British Isles (“English Sounds & Irish Suite”) and Eastern Europe (“Slavonic Tone”), but this Parisian concert will revolve around their reworking of Rüegg’s celebrated “Suite Alpestre.”

Week-end 6 GYPSY LAND

Central Europe first comes to mind when the word gypsy is mentioned. And of course Andalusia, but also Belgium and the Netherlands, Germany and France (where Django spent most of his life). Gypsy land has no flag, except the banner of freedom. This love of independence accounts for the Rom’s deeply felt empathy for the music of Black America, another nation marked by a long diaspora.

Saturday, July 11

3 pm       
Costel NITESCU
QUINTET
Whether he performs at an official concert for Bill Clinton or in the familiar setting of a gypsy festival, this former lead violin with the National Orchestra of Radio Bucharest displays a virtuosity and sense of swing that most observers have called awesome. A dedicated alumnus of Stéphane Grappelli, the Paris-based Nitescu feels free to tread more adventurous grounds at the head of his quintet (Antoine Hervier, piano – Adrien Moignard, guitar – Yves Rousseau, upright bass – Yoann Serra, drums) while remained faithful to the gypsy tradition.

4:30 pm  
Bojan Z • EXPATRIOTS

Bojan Zulfikarpasic started playing the piano at the age of 5, nourishing his passion for music from sources as diverse as Bach, Debussy and Ravel, the Beatles and the folksongs of his native Yugoslavia. A noted musician on the Belgrade club scene by the time he was 18, Bojan Z first moved to the US in order to hone his skills before settling in Paris two years later where he rapidly made a name (or rather an initial) for himself in French jazz. Winner of the Best Soloist Prize at the Défense Competition in 1990, Bojan has shared his time since then between playing with France’s finest (Michel Portal, Henri Texier, Julien Lourau), and performing solo or at the head of his own ensemble. European and American critics alike have praised his recordings, earning him the right to perform at every big festival on the face of the earth.

Sunday, July 12

3 pm       
BIRELI LAGRENE
« Gypsy Project »
Born a Sinti gypsy in Alsace in 1966, Lagrene remained faithful to a dwindling tradition throughout his childhood. Even more important was his decision to take up the guitar at four in order to follow in the footsteps of his father, a Django alumnus. By the age of seven, Bireli was a promising jazz instrumentalist who made his initial recordings in his early teens, displaying astounding maturity in his playing. Progressively clearing away from Django’s dominating shadow, he went on to create his own style within the gypsy jazz spectrum, recently earning a Victoire de la Musique whith this Gypsy Project.

4:30 pm   
KOCANI ORKESTAR

A direct heir to the Turkish army band tradition of yesteryear, this Orkestar is one of the funkiest exponents of the flamboyant brass band style to be found across ex-Yugoslavia. The group comes from the city of Kocani in the Republic of Macedonia, its music a mixture of Ottoman/Bulgarian rhythms and gypsy tunes from various parts of the Balkans, with an added Latin touch. A powerful rhythm section (four tubas and a drummer) and passionate soloists (sax, trumpet, clarinet, accordion) account for the Kocani Orkestar’s reputation as a thundering goodtime outfit known to bring audiences to their feet across Europe and America.

Week-end 7 RED, WHITE AND BLUE…

It only seems fitting to fly the colors of French jazz creation on the weekend following Bastille Day. Innovation, imagination and inspiration will lead the artists presented on this occasion, their music brimming with bold forays into the musical schools of the world.

Saturday, July 18

3 pm
Vincent COURTOIS
Quartet  “What do you mean by silence”
Silence indeed holds a central place in the daring experiments of this cellist and composer. With Yves Robert on trombone and two of the musicians responsible for the 2006 album that gave its name to this project (Jeanne Added, vocals – François Merville, drums & electronics), the classically trained Courtois explores rhythms and notes with baffling theatricality and a keen sensitivity to the acoustical possibilities of sound.

4:30 pm
Alban DARCHE & le GROS CUBE “Polar Mood & Sings Queen”
When he’s not burning up the highway at the head of his superlative trio, saxophonist Alban Darche is busy composing and arranging, for others, for himself, or for conspicuous projects such as the one he set up specifically for the Parc Floral with his polyrhythmic, polychrome and multifaceted Big Cube. Judge for yourself: 16 musicians, 3 vocalists, a musical reflection on the soundtracks of detective flicks entitled Polar Mood, and a tribute to the songs of Queen. Gros Cube spells good news for the jazz world. This big band may not alter the course of jazz, but its music certainly represents a milestone in the long history of the genre, simply because it could never have been written and performed as such before.

Sunday, July 19

3 pm
Emile  PARISIEN Quartet
Aficionados and critics alike concur in saying that Emile Parisien (his real name) is one of the major French revelations of the young millennium. An early beneficiary of the “Jazz in Marciac” school program, the 27-year-old soprano saxophonist first came to the attention of the jazz world with the release of his first album in 2006. When it hit the streets this spring, his sophomore recording confirmed that Parisien and his men (Julien Touery, piano – Ivan Gélugne, upright bass – Sylvain Darrifourcq, drums) were on the brink of a major international career. Their exciting performances are there to prove it.

4:30 pm
Jean-Marie MACHADO • DANZAS
Machado, a major pianist on the French music scene, has made a name for himself in Europe these past three years through performances with the “Sextet Andaloucia” and “Trio Time,” in addition to his outstanding collaboration with saxophonist Dave Liebman. A prolific composer, he artfully blends jazz, classical and ethnic musical influences, especially from the Mediterranean region. His latest 9-member ensemble is currently causing a sensation, “Danzas” representing an invitation to the colorful world of dance music from all walks of life.

Week-end 8 KALEIDOSCOPE

Final display for a season worthy of the polychrome setting of this outstanding park. A love story between sounds and colors, a melting pot of musical pyrotechnics!

Saturday, July 25

3 pm       
Jean-Philippe VIRET
Trio with Edouard Ferlet and Fabrice Moreau
Well-known for his work with Stéphane Grappelli and Richard Galliano (among others), upright bassist Viret insists on a melodic approach with his instrument. Bowing his way through deep sounds and resonances, he leaves ample room for Ferlet’s imaginative piano playing and Moreau’s rich rhythmic support.

4:30 pm   
Richard GALLIANO • LOVE DAY Quartet

« This program embraces my love for music and for the people who matter the most to me. » Thus spoke Galliano, one of the most prominent French jazzmen today, on the eve of the recording sessions at the legendary Capitol studios of Los Angeles that gave birth to the Love Day album. If the unmistakable Cuban piano of Gonzalo Rubalcaba is there, the presence of star bassist Richard Bona and veteran drummer Clarence Penn enhances the concert version of this masterpiece.

Sunday, July 26

3 pm       
BUMCELLO
+ guest Nathalie NATIEMBÉ
This unusual duet stems from the unlikely encounter of a Bum and a Cello, of a self-called « hard-core punk » and a model student of the Lyons Conservatory, of a cellist and a percussionist with an early urge to beat on everything he could lay his hands on. If the Bumcello experience is already quite impressive on record, it is truly astonishing on stage as Cyril and Vincent insist on improvising their grooves and melodies a hundred per cent, drawing from a bag of musical memories that encompasses African, Latin, European and Oriental influences. A Bumcello concert is always an event, as witnessed by the presence on this occasion of vocalist Natiembé from the Reunion Island.

4:30 pm   
Erik TRUFFAZ
Quartet + guest CHRISTOPHE
Erik’s trumpet is the most expressive voice of a new school that remains open to all experiments. When Truffaz and French songwriter Christophe crossed path on a TV show a few years ago, something happened between two artists who apparently had not much in common. Apparently only, for the seasoned pop star and the young jazz master hit it off from the start. This initial meeting turned into a real friendship that led to their recording a song together on Erik’s album Arkhangelsk. Christophe, truly elated to be asked to close this year’s festival with Truffaz and his quartet, promised to make the sparks fly and we can take his word for it.
