Herve Boissiere, founder and CEO of medici.tv, commented on his jazz programming: “Music is a world in itself: a unique journey through centuries, cultures, people and genres. Jazz is fundamental in the evolution of all music and it was natural that medici.tv, being a window on the history of music, included jazz in its repertoire. This rich and inventive art form has established itself as a true classic: Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald or Keith Jarret have become milestones in the same way as Ravel, Stravinsky, Gershwin and Bernstein did. in the twentieth century. medici.tv exists for all types of music. In this sense, jazz is part of the same musical journey as classical music.
