Body & Soul Consort, a quintet 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 (cornetto, archlute, viola da gamba, double bass), coulourful rhythmics and a jazzy-lyrical vocality, but also innovative arrangements and compositions, the band explores new ways to interpret and improvise on these repertoires.
