Pronto! by Christophe Marguet

Start Date : 16th February 20230

Pronto! brings together four major personalities from the European jazz scene. Each musician not only loves to work with written compositions, melodies, atmospheres but also create new imaginations using their own improvisations. The quartet nurtures a collective language from everyone’s universe, which generates a distinctive sound, a completely new sound identity, specific to the group.
