Daniel Migliosi Quintet: laureate of the Programme Propulsion 2022

The Daniel Migliosi Quintet (LU) and the Hugo Diaz Quartet – Confluences (FR) were selected for the first edition of Propulsion, a cross-border accompanying programme for young musicians from Luxembourg and the Région Grand-Est (France). This programme aims to support two young pre-emerging jazz bands in their structuration, more specifically in the recording of an EP.

This programme will be carried out by the musicians of the French Band OZMA and the Compagnie Tangram, as well as Maxime Bender, saxophone player, composer and managing director of the Trifolion (Echternach). The project counts numerous partners, notably neimënster, the Oeuvre de Secours Grande Duchesse Charlotte, Jazzdor and Jazzus. As part of its missions to support Luxembourg artists in their career development, Kultur | lx will allow the laureates of Propulsion to access its workshops.


About the Daniel Migliosi 5tet

The young quintet around Daniel Migliosi presents a mix of traditional hard bop with modern jazz elements on stage, which results in their own sound and invites the audience to a journey among diverse atmospheres. With Adrian Gallet on saxophone, Benedikt Göb on piano, Jan Blikslager on bass and Mathieu Clément on drums, Daniel Migliosi devotes himself to his own compositions.

Besides an inspiration time at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne, the five musicians share the common need to continuously enrich their personal and new ideas. The exchange, the musical interests and the friendship result in an expressive and interactive performance. Original compositions inspired by the USA “young lions” allow a perfect musical exchange between the Cologne “young lions”.
