Chicago, Madison, Urbana, Milwaukee, Detroit
Chicago, IL, United States

November 2-15, 2023


They started with a tour and a recording in France in January 2021. The Bridge, a transatlantic network of French and American jazz and improvisational musicians founded in 2013, is back to perform in Chicago, Madison, Urbana, Milwaukee and Detroit starting November 2nd !

This year’s cohort, Cancel Rescue Mission(TB #2.6), is the fourth iteration of these Franco-American collaborative ensembles, and is comprised of vocal performance, tenor sac, bagpipes, and two cellos.

Jazz at its peril, with its balancing acts and magic tricks, between the expanses that are crisscrossed and the depths that are explored“, expresses The Bridge. Quentin Biardeau and Etienne Ziemniak on one side, Corey Wilkes and Justin Dillard on the other, have attended the best schools: those they have given themselves and where everything is allowed. As well as artist collectives that have taken over what used to be called “a scene”: the TriCollectif in Orleans or the CapsulCollectif in Tours, the AACM in Chicago. “They take malicious pleasure, following the trail of powder. Expect a few outbreaks“.
