Writing on the Jazz Connective site, Jan Kobrzinowski explains that Jazz Connective was founded in August 2018 mainly by Pierre Dugelay. ''For Jazz Connective, 'Europe' is not only a noble political goal – rather, they are working as a very efficient kind of do-it-yourself network. Wherever the events take place with concerts, workshops and panel discussions, local and regional institutions are involved.''

Supported by the EU under the Creative Europe Project, Jazz Connective centres around Łódź, Dublin, Ljubljana, Lyon, London and Birmingham. Events this year under its auspices were held in Ljubljana, Łódź and in Helsinki. Coming up in 2020 The English Session will be held in London and Birmingham – the project then in April reaching a climax in Lyon. SG
