Thursday, May 11 at 20:00 CEST | Seine Sessions: Hiphop Jazz

The phrase ‘jam session’ came about in the 1920s, when white and black musicians would congregate in smoky bars after their regular paying gigs to play the jazz they couldn't in the Paul Whiteman style bands. Bing Crosby would often attend these sessions. Musicians would say he was ‘jammin' the beat’, as he clapped on the first and the third beat, rather than the second and the fourth. Now, in the 21th century, Stingray DJAZZ takes this ‘jamming’ into a whole new dimension with Seine Sessions. The crème de la crème of the Paris jazz, blues, gypsy and funk scene performs at the legendary club annex restaurant Le Réservoir. And what’s more: these artists never played with each other on stage before! This episode 'Hip Hop Jazz', presented by Eddy King, shows unique blues performances and interviews by among DjeuhDjoah, Lieutenant Nicholson and Kacem Wapalek.
