Jazz is American and classical music is European. Accordingly, an American artiste discovered jazz as a youngster, while a French pianist learnt Bach fugues. The fact that the superb opera singer Barbara Hendricks and pianist Jacques Loussier have both ended up performing jazz is probably something to do with the freedom that they find and enjoy in this type of music. And the pleasure they derive from playing and singing Ellington with a classical touch and Bach with a jazzy feel is infectious. Barbara Henricks' Jazz Project will be accompanied by the Magnus Lindgren Quartet.
