    Youn Sun Nah

    With her unique style, South Korean Youn Sun Nah adds a new flavour to vocal jazz, transforming conventional forms with elegance and the magic of emotions. Living in Paris since 1995, she has long conquered the international critics and won a Choc award from Jazzman magazine, the Prix Mimi Perrin du Jazz Vocal as singer of the year, the ECHO Award (Germany) for best international jazz vocalist and, for four times, the Korean Music Award. Her famous collaboration with Swedish guitarist Ulf Wakenius resulted in the album Same Girl (2010), number one on the French jazz charts. The latest She Moves On is a new plunge into poetry and intimacy, with the honesty and expressive power of a great singer.


    Ambrose Akinmusire Quartet

    It is becoming increasingly difficult to talk about contemporary jazz without mentioning Ambrose Akinmusire. A musician with a rare talent and vast aesthetic interests, he was praised by the critics with his three albums for Blue Note. The most recent, A Rift in Decorum: Live at the Village Vanguard (2017), is proof of the superior understanding between the musicians of his quartet – a formation that is not the favorite of trumpeters but where Akinmusire reaches the highest levels of his artistic expression. His 15-year career has paradoxically put him both in the center and on the outskirts of jazz – he won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition and the Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition, two of the most coveted international jazz trophies, but recently he also emerged in circles dedicated to classical music and hip hop (he collaborated with Kendrick Lamar on the award-winning To Pimp a Butterfly).
