About the new mandate of artisitic director Olivier Benoit :
Appointed for a term of four years (2014-2017) at the head of the Orchestre National de Jazz (ONJ), Olivier Benoit inaugurates with his musicians the eleventh orchestra in the history of the institution.

Motivated by the desire to have an intergenerational orchestra open to multiple stylistic registers, the new artistic director picked ten musicians with rich, original backgrounds — all of them have given a strong personal touch to their implication in musical research — and created an ONJ suited to all kinds of aesthetic orientations, an orchestra capable of fulfilling the ambition lying at the heart of his project: to free genres from the compartments which separate them.
