If you don’t know what Criss Cross Europe is, here’s a brief summary: Criss Cross Europe brings together 6 promising young jazz and impro musicians from 6 European countries to form a band. During the residency period these musicians work together, guided by an artistic coach (this year’s coach is drummer Jim Black!) – a flag-bearer of the international jazz scene. The residencies are concluded by a concert tour that takes the band to prominent venues in the 6 countries involved in the project. Throughout the residencies the partners meet to investigate the ingredients that help build international music careers.

Next week, we’ll start sharing the individual artists portraits. Here’s our SCHEDULE in the meantime. For some concerts, tickets are already available!
