The Big In Jazz Festival and the Baiser Salé Jazz Club “Hors les murs”
present THE BIG IN JAZZ COLLECTIVE
Brought together by the Big in Jazz Festival in August 2020, this all-star collective released the album “Global” last July, a fabulous record that draws on the West Indian musical heritage to bloom new flowers.
A generation of talented ambassadors from Martinique, Guadeloupe and Haiti, able to project a new perspective, without horizon limits, on a heritage that asks only to be brought back to life. Going from funk to reggae, from rock to Caribbean groove, always flirting with jazz and dance by making their differences and their accents sparkle in a magnificent and deep unity.
In the press :
Martinique la 1ère: “An unforgettable performance concert!”
France Inter: “An innovative and exceptional ensemble!”
Jazz News: “Ultramarine, fresh and intoxicating!”
Rolling Stone: Let’s groove tonight! ”
Jazz Magazine: “With inspired and open artists, a heritage can be reinvented!”
The Big In Jazz Collective is an authentic reflection of the creation of Caribbean jazz today!
