Like a Jazz Machine is back!



Like A Jazz Machine 2019 approaches! The reputation of Dudelange as Luxembourg’s City of Jazz is firmly established. By creating the festival “Like a Jazz Machine” in 2012, the founders have started a powerful generator of energies, visions and jazz moods. Relying on their ultimate commitment to jazz, the CCRD opderschmelz and the cultural department of the City created a common platform for the artists, the public, the professionals and cultural workers, as well as the associations and societies interested in partnership.

After the huge success of the previous seven editions, “Like a Jazz Machine” 2019 offers an open range of contemporary currents in jazz, by highlighting original creations and jazz on the highest level, as well as focusing on cross-border incursions in other musical genres. 15 bands and ensembles, assembling over 70 musicians, are going to share the stage of the CCRD opderschmelz during a period of four consecutive days.
Many artists in this program come back to the roots and many represent new exciting trends. The festival celebrates jazz in all its forms, and ranges from tradition to modernity.
The festival features big stars and living legends, either as leaders or as guest stars, world-renowned artists like Enrico Rava, Kyle Eastwood, Manu Katché,  Soweto Kinch… just as award-winning, confirmed talents like Laurent de Wilde, Stéphane Kerecki, Michel Edelin who stay for outstanding and pioneering performances.
Several artists were commissioned to develop original projects in residence at the CCRD opderschmelz, with complete artistic freedom. Jazz from Luxembourg, exceptionally dynamic and creative -  Marly Marques Quintet, Teleport, Pascal Schumacher - David Laborier NE:X:T, Arthur Possing Quartet, Claire Parsons Quintet.
The last performances of each day are particularly hot, the bands go party while staying on the highest artistic level, and invite the public to the dance-floor with their energetic hiphop-drives, groovy rythms and wild sounds. “Like a Jazz Machine” is an urban and eclectic festival for all ages, dedicated to enhance various moods and to keep on turning the resourceful machineries of today’s jazz all over the City of Dudelange, the whole of Luxembourg and the extended
European borderland.
