Marni Jazz Festival

Aug 4 2018
We could not open the season without welcoming a woman… Airelle Besson, the most prominent French trumpet player of the moment, is launching the 15th edition of the Marni Jazz Festival together with Vincent Segal. Added to which we pay tribute to the Belgian trumpet with ‘our’ talented musicians : Laurent Blondiau, Greg Houben and Jean-Paul Estievenart, each of whom offers us the honour of a brand new project, Bert Joris and his compositions promise us a top quality concert by a quartet. Everyone is committed to ensuring that each evening is unique ! And the icing on the cake for the final evening of the festival and the 40th anniversary of the Igloo label : a double concert, surprise guests and a DJ set with jazz vinyl records. Lovers of analogue photography and big names in the world of jazz – the ‘Jazz en Coulisses’ exhibition is for you. It features portraits by Eric Mannaerts taken backstage between 1985 and 1995.
