Paris Jazz Festival Editorial

The widespread success of Paris Jazz Festival - more than 110,000 visitors in 2015! - has been made possible by the strong bond that now links Parisians and Parc Floral around jazz and its heritage.
 
In keeping with our policy of programming weekends around a central theme, we will continue to explore this season various jazz territories, to evaluate their musical relevance as well as their connections with the French jazz scene. Troughout June and July, we will travel to Armenia and Switzerland, visit Brussels for a moving tribute to Jacques Brel. We will burn up the musical highways of the Iberian Peninsula, visit Havana in search of Cuba’s African roots, pay homage to the USofA where the blues and jazz were born…
 
We will start this two-month trip on a poetic note with utopian ramblings through the virgin soils of our dreams, first with Sylvain Rifflet’s Mechanics project on June 11, then with Thomas de Pourquery’s bionic Sun Ra project, followed the next day by the daring new creation of the Surnatural Orchestra.
 
Also on our agenda this summer, the groove of Memphis soul diva Toni Green backed by the funky Malted Milk band, a celebration of flamenco by Caribbean high priest Omar Sosa, a special program imagined by André Manoukian around the Armenian soul, Richard Bona’s vision of the sacred ties linking Cuba to Africa, as well as the carte blanche given to cello master Vincent Segal, his cohort Cyril Atef and flutist Magic Malik on PJF closing night.
 
A great PJF 2016 to all, and a great Musical Summer at Parc Floral.
