A quartet dedicated to jazz and baroque

Born from the meeting of musicians from rich and varied backgrounds, Body & Soul Consort is willing to create bridges between two musical languages that have a lot in common, even if they are separated by more than three centuries : baroque and jazz.

The founding idea of Body & Soul Consort is to blur stylistic barriers by mingling the features of jazz and baroque chosing among a repertoire from both styles. Through intimate and warm sonorities of ancient instruments (tiorba or archlute, double bass with gut strings), coulourful rhythmics and a jazzy-lyrical vocality, the band explores new ways to interpret and improvise on these repertoires.
