jazzahead 2011 ♦ Jean-Marie Machado & Danzas (France) ♦ 30. April 2011

“Blends instead of boundaries” seems to be the maxim of French composer and pianist Jean-Marie Machado. In his music, he uses elements of jazz, classical music as well as ethnic music influences, especially Mediterranean sounds, and skilfully fuses them into a complex blend of composition and improvisation, of traditional and contemporary. Together with his 9-person band “Danzas” he presents a creative and artful kaleidoscope of dance music full of surprising moments.
