NANCY JAZZ UP! EUROPE

VERSION FRANÇAISE

First professional convention dedicated to the artists and professionals who make and support the new wave of jazz, this ‘up tempo’ you can dance which melt jazz with currents musics !

A new device developed by NJP in 2022, is the very first professional convention dedicated to the artists and professionals who make and support the new wave of jazz that has been emerging for a few years, catalysed in England and now spread throughout Europe.
We are talking about a specific category of jazz, an « up tempo » jazz that mixes jazz harmonies with sounds and rhythms from current music (hip hop, electronic music, rock, afrobeat or nu-soul). This musical trend is mainly represented by English and American artists who have become emblematic (e.g.Snarky Puppy), by labels (e.g. Bronswood Recordings) but also by places that have generated the meeting of families of musicians (e.g. Total Refreshment Center in London).

VENUES

Nancy Jazz Up! Europe will take place in Nancy on Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 October 2022. The concerts will take place at the Magic Mirrors, an amazing ephemeral venue located in the Parc de la Pépinière (heart of the festival), but also at the MJC Lillebonne,a former renaissance-style mansion located in the heart of the old town, 5 minutes from the park. The conferences will take place at the LEM, a small theatre also located in the old town, half way.

CONTENT & OBJECTIVES

This first convention is organised by and within the framework of the Nancy Jazz Pulsations 2022 program. You’ll enjoy concerts, showcases, conferences, speed-meetings and masterclasses.

Indeed, we are convinced that this type of jazz interests a large public and that, above all, can be a formidable vector to bring new audiences (such electro and rap) towards jazz(s) but also can be an answer to other issues :

  • Supporting the artists’s careers
  • Development of audiences (jazz and currents musics)
  • Answers to societal objectives with the use of common resources and a joint approach to strengthen, in cooperation, the values and positive impact of this musical current
