ODE TO SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT AND JAZZ
With Yves Léveillé Quartet (Montreal)
Jazz music developed from a mixing of Black American culture and European influences, but it also came out the realities of racial oppression and social injustice. It served as an artistic movement in support of the emancipation of the black population, whose means of expression and liberating energy took over the world. The Yves Léveillé Quartet dedicates this evening to this movement and returns to the works of socially-engaged Jazz musicians. The program will feature Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Horace Silver, as well as original works by Yves Léveillé.
