JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2015 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Nils Berg CinemaScope at Rochester International Jazz Festival

Nils Berg CinemaScope at the Lutheran Church, a trio with horns, bass and drums, accompanied video performances they found on YouTube. They back-projected the clips and played to the recordings. Sometimes the home video or street performer footage from around the globe was processed, manipulated or looped. The mixed-media collage was sloppy at times but very engaging at others. I love the way the concept both collapsed and expanded our worldly perceceptions. And did I mention it was the same bass player as the two previous nights in this venue?
