Trumpeter, composer, arranger, band leader, Michael Leonhart is a complete artist. He has toured the world’s greatest stages alongside Steely Dan and Elvis Costello. Based in New York City in the midst of the creative fusion of the local music scene, he founded his Michael Leonhart Orchestra, which was joined by some of the top names in jazz and hip hop. It is especially for this vibrant expression of current events at the crossroads of jazz and urban music that we wanted to meet the artist in Marseille. He chose to meet the public before his big concert in Longchamp, in a more intimate form at the ephemeral Jazzclub. We are very proud of this meeting open to musicians for the Jam and to amateurs for the kiff!
