Improvised Music Company is delighted to be a part of Criss Cross Europe, a pan-European musical laboratory in collaboration with 6 European countries. This partnership brings together 6 leading jazz musicians from these 6 European countries to collaborate as a sort of new super-group. Following a residency period in Tallinn in autumn 2021 - collectively shaped and mentored by drummer Jim Black - these musicians are currently on a European tour with a one-night-only Dublin outing on December 9th.

This year's Criss Cross mentor - Berlin-based American drummer Jim Black - is one of the most influential voices in contemporary jazz. The Wire referred to Black as a ‘’complete musician and wonderfully fertile composer”. Black is internationally acknowledged for his virtuosic but highly personal approach to contemporary jazz. He stands at the forefront of a new generation of jazz innovators through projects like Human Feel, Tim Berne's Bloodcount, Ellery Eskelin's trio, Pachora, and Dave Douglas' Tiny Bell Trio. “Wickedly inventive… A revelation.” - CMJ

Estonian saxophone, Belgian trombone, Irish guitar, Scottish bass, Dutch vocals and Luxembourgish drums fuse with Black’s signature flair to create an unmissable night of dynamic new music.


The star young musicians chosen for this year’s cross-cultural experiment are:

Chris Guilfoyle (guitar) IRELAND

Nabou Claerhout (trombone) BRUXELLES

Sanne Rambags (vocals) THE NETHERLANDS

David Bowden (bass) SCOTLAND

Aleksander Paal (alto sax) ESTONIA

Michel Meis (drums) LUXEMBOURG
