The rules of the game


The Bridge associates nearly 150 French and North American musicians (75 per cycle, one cycle lasting seven years), divided into quartets and quintets. This long list respects the sociological diversity of the jazz field: men and women of all generations and backgrounds, who will be brought together, one after another, configuration after configuration. And its aesthetic diversity: music as a means of expression and as a means of experimentation, music as a domain of possibility. All of them show invaluable capacities to share their knowledge and craft, both on- and off-stage.


Each year, The Bridge organizes 4 tours or journeys – 2 to France and 2 to the United States – of rigorously cooperative formations, bringing together French and North American musicians who are members of the network, who have chosen each other and who have formulated their own project. Those who start in France will continue in the United States, and vice versa.


          In the direction of France to the United States, these journeys take the shape of 2-3 week stays in Chicago and the Midwest. Such a length of time opens up a wide range of activities and experiences, all sorts of twists and turns, to “infiltrate” the visiting French musicians in a novel way–to truly immerse them in a socio-musical environment through practice.


            In the direction of the United States to France, these trips are more akin to tours that rely on the network of partner clubs and festivals. However, the North American musicians are given the opportunity to make a few “getaways” with other members of the network and all kinds of audiences and communities.


From person to person, from group to group, by rotation, The Bridge reinforces the links between fraternities and sororities of musicians with distinct but complementary practices; The Bridge opens groundbreaking lines of communication and sharing.
