Connecting the dots in European improvisation, Jazz Connective is a 2-day festival of creative interplay celebrating contemporary improvisers and how they work and play.

Jazz Connective Dublin begins on Wednesday night with two celebrated Irish based musicians, pianist Izumi Kimura and violinist Cora Venus Lunny. In 2017, IMC commissioned both to create new work together for the BAN BAM festival, and they really hit it off. This is improvisational simpatico of the highest order, with both musicians deftly weaving a kind of musical alchemy.

Following them, Mercury-nominated and award-winning trumpeter Laura Jurd is an utterly distinctive voice as a composer and performer. In a rare solo set, she brings her blend of contemporary, jazz and improvised music to new heights.

Finally, Finnish trio Mopo draw inspiration from jazz, 70’s punk and nature, resulting in intense and inspiring performances which have captured audiences all over the world. Last seen in Dublin at 12 Points in 2013, since then they have catapulted into the European festival circuit.

Expect the unexpected in Dublin this 11th and 12th December as IMC host a selection of world-class improvisers and collaborators from both home and abroad at the Project Arts Centre.

Jazz Connective is is a collaborative project supported by the Creative Europe – Cooperation Project. It is presented in Dublin by Irish project partners Improvised Music Company (IMC).
