At the head of the National Jazz Orchestra, with his Europa programme Olivier Benoit offers us a kaleidoscope of the musical landscape of the great European cultural capitals. Over the last 25 years, the city of Berlin has been re-establishing its unity. It is also a fascinating city that attracts artists and travellers alike. "Berlin Exil" has been fed by the aesthetic and musical currents of Berlin: minimalist music, free jazz and electronic music. Olivier Benoit delivers a decidedly subjective image of the city: very typical compositions, intentionally lyrical and sometimes contradictory sound textures and irresistible outbursts of soloist energy.
Recorded during the Détours de Babel festival.
