Musicians’ projects

Ever since its inception in 1986, the ONJ, during its leaders’successive mandates, has welcomed a galaxy of established and emerging musicians who, by their personalities and artistic commitments, have all made full contributions to the history of the Orchestra.

These artists, whose expressions and personal trajectoiries have nevers cessed to fuel the vivacity of jazz in France right up to the present (and will continue to do so), constitute the exciting vivarium which the ONJ has chosen to support in the contexte of the institution’s further development.

Through ONJ Fabric, and under the aegis of ONJ Artistic Director Olivier Benoit, the Orchestra has today set up a programme to accompany, spread and promote a series of projects beyond the ONJ context, projects imagined by the Orchestra’s musicians as testimony of these singular voices.
