With the Transatlantic conversations project, composer and pianist Maggi Olin joins forces with her fellow countrywoman, composer and saxophonist Christine Jensen. Backing up these soloists is a jazz ensemble of 11 Quebec musicians, coming together for an unprecedented Sweden-Quebec collaboration in Montreal. The project also shines the spotlight on Swedish singer Sofie Norling. These composers proclaim their undying love for Monk, Ellington and Mingus, while delving into progressive rock grooves and melodic motifs inspired by classical music, world music as well as folk music. A first-class opening night for the 17th edition of the OFF JAZZ festival!
