Concert from 9:00 pm
House of Echo
House of Echo was born in 2012 from the encounter between pianist Enzo Carniel and guitarist Marc-Antoine Perrio, around the desire to create space and improvised music, which reconnect and reconcile listening and time. Far from any emergency, their music develops and builds itself in time, in a subtle weft of colors and patches, between melodic abstraction and allusive groove, trembling textures drawing auditory landscapes with strong dreamlike power.
Melodic and current, the music of Foehn Trio invites the public from the first notes to enter its evocative imagination, oscillating between acoustics and amplification. Foehn Trio is part of this new wave of 21st century jazzmen. Two years after the release of “Magnesia”, Foehn Trio announces the release of their second album “Highline” scheduled for fall 2019, including some great guests including Erik Truffaz. Through these new compositions, the trio moves towards a new modern, punchy sound, subtly mixing acoustic instruments and electronic sounds, creating a powerful and dreamlike universe.
Named after an ancestral wind carrying every grain of sand from the Sahara to the mountains of the Alps, the Foehn trio takes you on a musical journey full of emotions and complicity where fluidity triumphs in a highly intense toy!

Jean-Marie Machado, Danzas Orchestra
On October 25, Jean Marie Machado celebrates the 10th anniversary of his Danzas Orchestra, in the company of the musicians of the Orchestra (15 artists on the set).
The Danzas Orchestra will present a selection of the five musical creation programmes, produced, recorded and broadcast since the beginning of its existence.
If there is a Nojazz concept, it is very simple: mix the spirit of the soul and the jazz of the origins (the party) with the hypnotic rhythms of the current sounds. Soul and jungle, trip hop and fanfares, melodies and samples, funk hard bop with drum'n'bass sauce, it is the marriage of swing and electronics.
October 26th – Big Band Day
2 concerts, from 2:00pm to 4:30pm
Les Rugissants (10 musicians): Les Rugissants is a modern jazz tent led by pianist and composer Grégoire Letouvet. Influenced as much by contemporary jazz as by classical and contemporary music, Les Rugissants blends complexity and lyricism in their compositions.
Met at the CRR in Paris, Les Rugissants evolved progressively from 5tet to 10tet, in search of a real musical dramaturgy, of colors and orchestral movements giving life to the discourse, a blurring of the lines between writing and improvisation, a collective groove.
Tullia Morand Orchestra: The composer and conductor Tullia Morand was surrounded by a band XXL: 13 musicians. After co-authoring the music from the films Sound of Noise and Le Temps de l'Aventure, she continues her journey which corresponds to her universe nourished by jazz, classical and pop influences.
2 concerts from 9:00pm
Line Kruse Orchestra (20 musicians): Danish composer, Line Kruse sets the bar high in large format music with this ambitious new project that is his fourth album Hidden Stone.
It takes some courage to tackle the delicate art of the big band today. And it is all the more daring that the music is directed by the violin and is based on the tortuous rhythm of the Latin polyrhythms.
Bigre (21 musicians): Great purist of musical poncifs, thinking head of Bigre! and the collective Grolektif, Félicien Bouchot is the prolixe author of a resolutely composite music. Where you can hear the Cuban Rumba tinkering with the odd metrics of the Balkans, where you can guess possible idylls between afrobeat and metal, where travel memories can give rise to incredible musical chimeras…
