FRENCH QUARTER The Best of French Jazz in New York
January 12th - 14th, 2015 

3 Nights of Music with 10 Showcases and over 40 of the best French Jazz Musicians
Smalls Jazz Club | Joe's Pub | Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Announcing the 2015 French Quarter Lineup:

Pierrick Pedron | Marian Badoi | Julien Alour Quartet | Olivier Bogé | Yonathan Avishai| Cedric Hanriot | Grégory Privat/Sonny Troupé | Jean-Michel Pilc | René Urtregor | Airelle Besson / Nelson Veras

Following a successful debut at Smalls Jazz Club in January 2014, French Quarter returns to New York in January 2015 alongside APAP, globalFEST, and Winter Jazz Fest to celebrate the recent international resurgence of the French jazz scene with 40+ musicians in 10 showcases at three of the NYC's most storied venues: Smalls, Joe's Pub, and Dizzy's.

Paris Jazz Club, with the support of its partners SACEM, la Ville de Paris, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York, Institut Français, and Bureau Export have chosen a varied and exciting lineup of the most promising French jazz acts, from gypsy music (Marian Badoi) to jazz-world music hybrids (Grégory Privat & Sonny Troupé) to new twists on more traditional and contemporary group formats (Pierrick Pedron's Trio "Kubic's Cure" and Cedric Hanriot's Quintet "City of Poets"). This year's festival will include artists both already well established in American jazz circles, such as Jean-Michel Pilc, or Dan Tepfer, and under-the-radar French performers destined to build a major American audience.

Many groups include internationally-acclaimed US musicians playing alongside these burgeoning French acts, including heavy-weights like Ari Hoenig, Seamus Blake, Clarence Penn, Matt Wilson and Donny McCaslin. The final night offers the unique opportunity to witness René Utregor, an octogenarian pianist who has played with everyone from Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Lester Young, Stan Getz, and Stéphane Grappelli, making his stateside début.
