‘Jazzed Out’ All Over Paris
by Patrick Jarenwattananon
Jazzed Out is a series of 10 short, videotaped performances of jazz musicians playing sessions in unconventional venues. It looks to be edited much like the Take-Away Shows, and taped all across the city of Paris. Anat Cohen’s quartet, Avishai Cohen (the bassist, not Anat’s brother), Jacques Schwarz-Bart’s quintet, and a handful of other groups have taped sessions.
The project airs piecemeal in late December on the Mezzo television channel; the episodes might be posted online as well, as the Tigran clip seems to be the first installment. I’d keep an eye out on the KIDAM Vimeo channel for further leaks.
