Orchestre National De Jazz - Concert Anniversaire 30 Ans CD + DVD

SKU 15-ADC 4627
The ONJazz is the French National Jazz Orchestra – which varies in size, but is always a big band - who have a revolving cast of artistic directors.
Since they have a revolving cast of directors, the only thing that you can count on is that they will present great players playing frighteningly good, stunningly complex music of electric jazz. That’s a pretty good and safe bet for going in blind, even if you don’t know them.

“For its 30th anniversary, the Orchester National de Jazz has exceptionally brought together on stage all its directors since its creation, for a historic concert given on September 2, 2016 at the Cité de la Musique Philharmonie de Paris, as part of the Jazz à La Villette.
A unique event that the ONJ Records label invites us to relive with the edition of this CD DVD set.--In three decades of existence, this one-of-a-kind institution has revealed eleven exciting projects and offered a vast panorama of French jazz in large training. It is enough to browse the impressive list of prestigious musicians who have assumed artistic responsibility and nourished the desks with their talents, to be convinced that in 30 years, all styles, all sensibilities, all generations will have succeeded each other within the NJO...
From François Jeanneau, who had the honor of inaugurating the formula, to the current artistic director, Olivier Benoit, it is indeed the plural identity of a hexagonal jazz that this formation will have promoted over time, in as many singular variations.
For this big birthday party, François Jeanneau, Antoine Hervé, Claude Barthélemy who will have directed the ONJ twice, Denis Badault, Laurent Cugny, Didier Levallet, Paolo Damiani, Franck Tortiller, Daniel Yvinec and Olivier Benoit proposed a piece of their vintage, drawn from the repertoire of their term of office. Eleven pieces performed, in the presence and with the complicity of each director, by the soloists of the ONJ Olivier Benoit, who has been expanded by student instrumentalists from the CNSM in Paris and the Norwegian Academy of Music, to better restore the original and the line-up of the time. A way, through this retrospective in the form of a composite and deliciously heterogeneous suite, organized chronologically, to highlight both the undeniable historical continuity between all these languages undeniably participating in the same tradition and its evolution, and the extreme richness of the formal proposals that all these formations will have brought.
30 years of ONJ, it is also nearly 150 soloists, formidable personalities that each of the directors will have been able to gather around him and who will have undeniably nourished with their voice the collective adventure; it is also meetings with guest artists for the duration of a project or a concert.”
