The Collective Abroad


The Collective Abroad emerged out of an international project of seven European Conservatories. In May 2019, a handful of talented students met in Hamburg (DE) to prepare for a concert at the Elbjazz Festival. In one week, they rehearsed and successfully performed their original repertoire at one of the biggest jazz festivals in Germany. What started as an annually recurring project, turned into a permanent collaboration, when members of The Collective Abroad decided to continue playing together despite the distances and borders between them. Since its foundation in April 2019, the band performed several international tours and played at festivals such as Elbjazz (Hamburg, DE), Swingin' Groningen (NL), Aarhus Jazzfest (DK) and Vinterjazz (DK). The Collective Abroad carries out a great variety of high quality modern and contemporary improvised music, which reflects various influences from music scenes of the seven members: Hamburg, Berlin, Amsterdam, Aalborg, Vilnius and Groningen. Each of their concerts and albums features seven compositions and seven different forms of improvisation, taking inspiration from artists like Ambrose or Walter Smith III up to outcomposed titles in the style of Maria Schneider or Ben Wendel, giving the listener a broad and diverse experience. The Cycle is the first full-length release from the current lineup, comprised entirely of original music with each member contributing fresh compositions. The release concert will make up the first half of the night. The second half of the night will end with a jam session.
