Presence: Late-Night

Jazz at night

Over the last few years, nothing has refreshed jazz like its contact with electronic music. This is clearly heard in the performances of Libor Sima and Felix Borel, two musicians and skilled improvisers from the SWR Symphonieorchester who have teamed up with jazz musicians from Germany. The small ensemble featuring solo violin harks back to the beginnings, when Stéphane Grappelli invented a European variety of jazz with guitarist Django Reinhardt in the Quintette du Hot Club de France. They combine tradition with avant-garde, improvisation with classical performance: we hope this New Standard will become just that!
