By opening up the jazz spectrum to include genres like improvised electronica and minimalist classical music, XJAZZ encourages jazz and its continuing influence on all forms of contemporary music.
But Jazz can be also seen as an attitude beyond the music. It's constant curiosity in change and development, always open to improvise and to find creative solutions.
Jazz is about improvisation and communication. These skills are important - not only in Jazz. XJAZZ lab is also about exploring and developing JAZZ in general - beyond the music.
It’s also about listening, nut just playing. It’s about developing the empathy to understand what the other players might do in the next moment, and also developing the flexibility to react creatively if it happens completely different than expected.
Finding the right balance between action and reaction.
It’s about connecting your soul and heart and personality with your output.
