more about the film

30 years ago, the idea was born for the Brussels Jazz Orchestra, which is now internationally recognised as a top-level orchestra. With internationally acclaimed projects (just think of the Oscar-winning music for The Artist), collaborations with great national and international artists such as Bert Joris, Ambrose Akinmusire and Maria Schneider, but also surprising partners such as De Frivole Framboos and DJ Grazzhoppa, the orchestra always manages to surprise, exceed expectations and appeal to new audiences. 

How does the orchestra make artistic decisions? How does the BJO achieve to seamlessly play together? How do the musicians experience collaborations with international artists? And who bluffed their way through a BJO audition? You'll discover it all in this documentary.
