A unique musical journey by three outstanding musicians exploring jazz, improvisation and electronic music.
Percussionist/composer Roland Auzet with performer/composer Pierre Jodlowski invited the legend of French jazz and improvised music, Michel Portal (who premiered Pierre Boulez’s “Domain,” Boulez said that Portal is “blessed with an imaginative virtuosity”) to form Trio PAJ in 2007.
This daring collaboration reflects their influence of various artists and styles, from Boulez to Stockhausen via Xenakis, Coltrane, and Soft Machine.
