Orchestre National de Jazz de Montréal Presents BIRTH OF THE COOL

Article Pixel

The event takes place on September 24.

Faithful to its dual mission, the National Jazz Orchestra offers in the same concert the collaborative masterpiece at the origin of cool jazz, Birth of the Cool, and Alexandre Côté's Portraits d'ici, a series of compositions inspired by Quebecois, regional or urban stays. Conceived as a musical travel diary, the suite evokes memories of landscapes and encounters, the meticulous impressionistic work of a skillful sound landscape artist. In both cases, the ONJ is adjusting its staff to best serve the works it presents.
