The "Common Language of Swing" is an essential topic for jazz musicians, more so - as we strive for excellence in jazz.
Through the use of jazz recordings, musical performances, and applying the African-American imitation method to embody the music, the John Pål Inderberg Trio seeks to explore the role of auditory imitation in Jazz, leading attendees to discover how imitation can lead to free musical expression.
