THE SCOOP | Medici.tv expands jazz as next step for classical music channel
This is the start of something new for the first classical music channel Medici.TV.
Medici.tv has launched an on-demand extension video section for jazz, with new content added daily.
“Music is a world in itself…” declared Hervé Boissière, founder and CEO of medici.tv. “Jazz is fundamental in the evolution of all music and it was natural that medici.tv, being a window on the history of music, includes jazz in its repertoire […] In this sense, jazz is part of the same musical journey as classical music.
The new channel features Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Ella Fitzgerald and Ron Carterin, all in HD audio and video quality. Other concerts include historical performances from Vienna, Malta, Paris, Antibes, Basel, Brussels and Nice.
While this is a legacy business, Medici.tv’s is also investing in future rising stars of jazz with showcases on trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, singer China Moses and bass prodigy Kinga Głyk.
