The Transatlantic Bridge to Creative Music is a project directed by poet/historian/cultural critic Alexandre Pierrepont to foster communication between musicians in Paris and in Chicago.  Woodland Pattern has been proud to be part of this transatlantic project for the past 4 years. Alexandre Pierrepont writes:

 

"‘Jazz’ music has always crossed borders with ease, be they between styles and nations, in order to better glorify the stirring power of its "disparate singularities", to make them go haywire. Born from the African American experiences, still deeply connected to them while becoming American, European, Western, and transnational, ‘jazz’ grew by producing groundbreaking hybrids, with every musician always contributing their whole being, to be transformed upon contact with others.”
