This April saw the third edition of the Transition Festival take place at TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht, Holland. This is one of the North Sea Jazz Festival's 'projects' and is organised in collaboration with TivoliVredenburg, with the festival providing a fresh look into developments within contemporary jazz and beyond, as well as highlighting some of the artists who have inspired the current wave of new bands within the genre.
