Erik Truffaz 4tet

Past Dates

There is certainly no lack of cross-border musicians in contemporary jazz, but there are few performers who so recklessly surpass their own limits as French trumpeter Erik Truffaz – with purely provocative intentions. In times of accelerating developments in the field of technology and media, he seriously takes up the message of jazz tradition with its century-old power of self-renewal. Truffaz’s band functions like high-tech dixieland where every musician participates throughout in the development of the musical process.

Erik Truffaz’ music is nervous and infectious but at the same time conveys the certainty that every moment is rooted in a whole network of multiple traditions.
