“I believe that jazz is the most personal form of musical expression, and as such expresses the full range of emotions we all experience. Jazz was born in America as an expression of the experiences and emotions blacks in the South. Because of its emotional range, authenticity, and humanity, it quickly evolved and spread throughout the US, Europe, and the rest of the world. Jazz is a language, and like literature, there is a broad range of jazz, some that’s joyful, and some that’s deep, meaningful, and emotionally nurturing. The full spectrum of jazz is what we present at the Jazz Society Café, the performance venue of The Jazz Society of Ecuador located in Cuenca, Ecuador. Presenting jazz is our effort to unite us all in our common desire for peace and humanity.

France Wonderful Gershwin

George Gershwin is one of the very few 20th century composers to be as well known and admired in the world of classical music as in the world of jazz when countless performers have appropriated his works

It is in this repertoire of songs with extremely varied melodies that Mathilde Ferry and Fabien Ruiz decided to draw together to write a musical show, a joyful and elegant homage to this “wonderful” composer!

But beyond the music, “WONDERFUL GERSHWIN” also tells through words, the blazing life of this genius who died prematurely – at the age of 38 – leaving behind a colossal work and an inimitable style !

Das 2. Konzert im April 2020 widmet sich dem „klassischen“ Pianotrio in der Besetzung Piano, Bass und Schlagzeug. Mit dem 1938 in Brooklyn geborenen Steve Kuhn ist einer der herausragenden Repräsentanten jener Triotradition in der Tangente zu Gast, die von Bill Evans in den 50er Jahren gemeinsam mit dem Bassisten Scott LaFaro und dem Schlagzeuger Paul Motian begründet wurde. In der von Impressionismus, Cool Jazz und einer gleichberechtigten Balance der Instrumente gleichermaßen geprägten Spielauffassung findet eine introvertierte und lyrische Sensibilität ihren Platz im Jazz.

United States Bokanté at the Rio Theatre

Named with the word meaning “exchange” in the Antillean Creole language spoken on vocalist Malika Tirolien’s Caribbean home island of Guadeloupe, Bokanté is one of the latest omnivorous conglomerations assembled by bassist and Snarky Puppy mastermind Michael League. Combining the Snarky Puppy guitar line and lap steel virtuoso Roosevelt Collier with a trio of percussionists including longtime Paul Simon hand drummer Jamey Haddad and Banda Magda/Snarky Puppy multi-instrumentalist Keita Ogawa, Bokanté brings a hugely dynamic multicultural musical approach that marries the electric blues of Led Zeppelin with Afropop and folkloric Caribbean styles, unified by the soaring vocals of Tirolien.
