Moers Festival Interviews: Julien Desprez

Read "Moers Festival Interviews: Julien Desprez" reviewed by Martin Longley

It might seem that the Parisian guitarist Julien Desprez has made a recent storming of the jazz and improvisation scenes. He did make lightning moves and sounds at Jazzfest Berlin and the Moers Festival in 2018 and '19, but Desprez was active nearly a decade ago—though enjoying a much lower profile.
