Based on the extraordinary vivacity of French and German jazz scene, and the impact that could have on it, some cross-border cooperation in the field of jazz and improvised music, the festival Jazzdor Strasbourg has done an important work with the artistic scene across the Rhine and has reached true partnerships with German professionals through two operations supported by AJC: Jazzdor Berlin and JazzPassage.
