The programme for this year’s edition at Parc de la Villette features the usual blend of established masters and up-and-coming talent, boppers and fusion artists, swing bands and free jazz quartets, Western and Eastern tradition. De La Soul, Jeff Mills and Emily Parisien, Gregory Porter, Pharoah Sanders, Zakir Hussain, Joachim Khun, Archie Shepp...
