France’s edgy ONJ ensemble, led by conductor Daniel Yvinec, appears here in a rhythmically charged collaboration with US drummer/ composer John Hollenbeck, taking a sublime and ridiculous look at the ways in which music and movement combine. From a ping-pong ball bouncing across piano wire to miscellaneous objects mistreated by computer software via pygmy music, Gnawa trance and Duke Ellington swing, this will be a head-spinning time trip.
This concert will be broadcast in Jazz on 3 on BBC Radio 3 on Mon 22 Nov
Part of the London Jazz Festival in association with BBC Radio 3
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
