The city’s jazz lovers are in for a real treat next month as the hotly anticipated 12 Points Festival presents 4 nights of next-generation jazz featuring 12 exciting emerging jazz acts from across Europe, with daytime ‘Jazz Futures’ industry conference and after-hours jam sessions. Catch a sneak preview of all 12 artists performing at this year’s festival here.
Produced by Dublin-based Improvised Music Company (IMC), the 2018 festival opens at the Sugar Club, Dublin on Wednesday 5th September with a cracking programme featuring Julie Campiche Quartet (Geneva), Susanna Risberg Trio (Stockholm and nOx.3 & Linda Oláh (Paris) .
Steering an instrument not associated with jazz into new sonic terrain, Swiss harpist Julie Campiche and her quartet create a dynamic yet uncluttered ‘electro-acoustical’ experience.
At just 26, Susanna Risberg is already on her way to becoming one of Europe’s leading guitarists, with shades of Scofield and Metheny, moving effortlessly from groove oriented pieces to straight-ahead contemporary jazz.
Diverse sounds from Parisian band nOx.3 featuring Swedish vocalist Linda Olah; industrial minimalism meets traditional ‘chanteuse’ meets abstract noise meets Noir soundtrack, all in perfect equilibrium.
