Each year, Criss Cross Europe brings together 6 promising young jazz and impro musicians from 6 European countries to form a pan-European band. During the residencies these musicians work together, guided by experts and an artistic coach – a flag-bearer of the European jazz scene. The residencies are concluded by a concert tour that takes the band to prominent venues and festivals in – minimum – the 6 countries involved in the project. Throughout the residencies the partners meet to investigate the ingredients that help build international music careers.
Greenbag was involved in the Criss Cross Europe Band 2016 featuring Louis Sclavis.
