Mathieu Durand

Mathieu Durand est journaliste et il a notamment écrit pour 96, Jazz News et La Terrasse.
Il est aujourd'hui rédacteur en chef de Jazz News.

En 2009 avec Nikola Cindric il fonde Criss Cross Jazz, un blog qui suit de près la nouvelle scène jazz. Il sort un livre en 2014, Best of de Criss Cross qui s'appelle "On a marché dans le jazz et pas du pied gauche" (2014, SKOPP), qui alors sonne la fin du blog.

Dans ses billets, Mathieu Durand fait « exploser en mille morceaux les clichés qui circulent sur le jazz : une musique du passée, une musique d'ascenseur, une musique pour vieux, une musique académique, une musique ringarde, une musique et des musiciens sérieux et ennuyeux ».
Avec un oeil aiguisé et original, il participe au renouvellement de la critique jazz en France en apportant un regard drôle, impertinent, curieux en étant sur le terrain et en fuyant les sentiers battus.
