The Bridge is an exchange of music and culture between France and Chicago that began in 2012. Each edition includes a new batch of improvisors who join forces over an extended period of time, performing numerous shows in Europe and the U.S., and combining their individuality into a group sound that is coherent and unique. The performance in Madison includes Chicago reedmen Keefe Jackson and Dave Rempis, and French drummer Peter Orins.
For those keeping score: Christine Wodrascka joins this performance now that a piano is available.
