AHMED DICKINSON CARDENAS & DAVID MACGREGOR

CLASSICAL MEETS JAZZ

The concept has been explored more often than we might immediately realize. Since the first decades of the twentieth century, classical musicians have been inspired by the musical creations of jazz musicians and vice versa; Gershwin or Miles Davis are particularly famous references. But what we are now doing with our modest project is establishing a musical dialogue in which the pieces we perform somehow share the same harmonies, structures and textures, amplifying the similarities within our different musical styles. This way we are able to create a sound bridge whose aim is to blur the audience’s perceptions of improvised and non-improvised music.
