Jazz de Luxe : Part Two  -  Sun Jan 21, 2018  |  07:00 pm
The second part of our all day celebration of jazz from Luxembourg continues with the theme of the afternoon session - a mix of established bands who already have a Europe-wide reputation, and new combinations for whom this could well be the launching pad for continuing collaboration.

In this we'll be drawing on what is already the hugely productive cross-fertilisation of artists and music from across Europe, with players forming bonds based on shared creative ideas rather than nationality. Indeed, our visitors from Luxembourg already include vocalist Sascha Ley, originally from Germany, and - from France - guitarist Manu Codjia and bassist Laurent Payfert . . . so pitching in the three English members of Archipelago just adds to the rich mix.

In fact it would be fair to say that this day at the Lit & Phil is indeed a celebration of Luxembourg jazz, but equally a reflection of the fact that great music knows no borders.
