JAZZEN is a musical residency project around the artist Amel Zen, author, composer, and Algerian performer of ethno-pop, rock and Amazigh (Berber) that the Musaika association creates on the occasion of the celebration of this day. .
This event is also an opportunity to pay tribute to the late Armando “Chick Corea” who passed away this year. Considered one of the most influential jazz pianists since the 1970s and an outstanding jazzman with a rich discography of over forty albums to his credit; his music has radiated all over the planet.
This particular year marked by the global pandemic, artists have particularly suffered from the closure of performance venues, and this is an opportunity for us to support them through this project

Argentina Jazz Day at Hot Club Rosario Virtual

The music of the “Roaring” 1920s and 1930s is back!
Composed of four true jazz musicians with vast experience in Argentina and abroad, the “YELLOW TAXI JAZZ” quartet features trumpet, clarinet, trombone, guitar and vocals, as it was frequently seen and heard in the 1920s and 1930s in New Orleans, Chicago and New York, when small groups played in bars and restaurants.
True to the jazz tradition, each of the musicians improvises his solo. Thanks to this particular mix of instruments, the group can easily move, coming in and out of the stage without having to connect or assemble any special equipment. That is why “YELLOW TAXI JAZZ” is a walking machine with only one mission: To bring the joy of jazz to each listener’s heart!

Dominican Republic Women in Jazz in the Dominican Republic – Book Release & Concert
A las 7:00pm del viernes 23 de abril Fernando Rodríguez de Mondesert, en medio de un conversatorio, lanzará su libro Mujeres en el Jazz .. en Dominicana, su segundo titulo, publicado por la Ukiyoto Publishing Co., siendo el primero como premio por haber sido uno de los ganadores del Global Blog Awards 2019.
La obra, en Español e Inglés, pretende resaltar la contribución de las mujeres a nuestro jazz. Es un homenaje, una oportunidad para conocer algunas de las propuestas contemporáneas de mujeres que han entregado sus talentos, su música; que han compartido sus almas y corazones con el público; que han trillado y abierto camino a otras que les han seguido.
Las mujeres siempre han sido una parte importante del jazz, aunque a menudo sus logros no han tenido el mismo reconocimiento que el de sus colegas masculinos. Ellas, han contribuido enormemente en todos los estilos y en todas las épocas de la historia del jazz. Igualmente ha ocurrido y sigue ocurriendo en la República Dominicana, razón por esta obra: ¨Mujeres en el jazz …en Dominicana¨! Libro que abre una ventana a las mujeres que han sido, son y serán parte de la escena del jazz en el país!
A las 9:00pm el festejo continúa con la presentación del Fiesta Sunset Jazz Vocal Jam 2021. Si los Jam sessions son especiales y muy esperados tanto los músicos como el público para experimentar estas descargas – no se imaginan cuan grandes y vivos son los Vocal Jams. He aquí uno muy especial. Nuestro trío base a cargo de Jordi Masalles servirá de plataforma para los despegues de unas muy talentosas vocalistas. La magia del Jazz…Se da en su máxima expresión en los jammeos…vayan, y … que no se lo cuenten.
###
At 7:00 pm on Friday, April 23, Fernando Rodríguez de Mondesert will release his book Jazz en Dominicana: The Interviews 2019, product of the award received from Ukiyoto Publishing Co. for having been second finalist of the Global Blog awards Awards 2019.
The publication, in Spanish and English, is a tribute to the contribution of women to jazz in our country, it has been an opportunity to learn about some of the contemporary proposals in this genre from women who have given their talents and music; have shared their souls and hearts with audiences; have trodden and paved the way for those who are to follow them.
Women have always been an important part of jazz, although their achievements have often not received the same recognition as that of their male colleagues. They, have contributed enormously in all styles and in all eras of jazz history. The same has happened and continues to happen in the Dominican Republic, reason for this title: ¨ Women in Jazz… in the Dominican Republic¨!. Book which looks into the women that have been, are and will be a part of the jazz scene in the country!
And at 9:00 pm, the celebration continues with the presentation of the Fiesta Sunset Jazz Vocal Jam 2021. If Jam sessions are special and highly anticipated by both musicians and the public to experience these get down sessions – you cannot imagine how big and alive Vocal Jams are. Here’s a very special one. Our base trio led by Jordi Masalles will serve as a platform for the takeoffs of some very talented female vocalists. The magic of Jazz … It occurs at its best in jams … and get the scoop .. live!

Sissi Imaziten, inspired by ancestral wisdom and poetry from the Berber mountains of Kabylia in Algeria, composed traditional songs for her 1st album ANZUR (Pilgrimage). Sissi Imaziten loves International Jazz Day because it breaks down boundaries and brings us together through music.

With that, she’d like to share this:
A new version of ‘Zzehr-iw’ has been created for JazzDay 2021. Sensitive musicians, Karim Malki (guitar, composer,arranger), Slimane Tadjer (flute), and Lounes Bouali (mandole,bouzouki) give a jazz and world flavour to a piece of her ancestral repertoire. The result definitely testifies that music has no borders.
Next, ‘vav w ahriq’ is an ode to Mother Nature. The thrilling sound of virtuoso Said Akhelfi’s ney flute and Sissi’s voice accompany olive picking.

Palestinian Territories Faris Ishaq performing "NAY : Nature Addresses You" Virtual

When nature reveals its secrets, imposing it’s truth upon us. the “Nay” flute reflects a shadow ignored by mankind. The Nay, dates back to 5000 B.C to Ancient Egypt and has been existing since then, reminding us of our ancient origins. In order for its sound to come out, a consistent reflective connection has to be made between the nay, the player and the environment it is played within. Perhaps that is why the Sufi Tradition chose the nay as an instrument for self-discovery. The performance “NAY : Nature Addresses You” is a solo performance that aims to strengthen the bond between humanity and nature and invites for a journey narrated by the nay for the call of self-discovery and self-reconciliation.

DOR is a Romanian word impossible to be translated into other languages just like JAZZ. Both of these words have a translation into the international language of music, which we all understand because it comes from the heart. The pandemic is a period that forces us to follow a series of rules, and it is difficult to organize a concert as we would like.
But we will not give up! We chose an unconventional space and online solution to honor this great celebration of free music!

Miles Ahead

Al cim d’una brillant carrera al capdavant de l’avantguarda del jazz, Miles Davis (Cheadle) desapareix de l’escena durant cinc anys a finals dels ’70. Atrinxerat a casa seva, adolorit i amb la veu minvada per les drogues, viu turmentat pels fantasmes del passat. És llavors quan irromp a la seva vida el reporter musical, Dave Braden (Ewan McGregor), i tots dos emprenen una aventura per intentar recuperar una cinta sostreta que contenia l’enregistrament de les últimes composicions de l’artista.

###

At the height of a brilliant career at the forefront of jazz avant-garde, Miles Davis (Cheadle) disappeared from the scene for five years in the late ’70s. Intrigued at home, sore and with his voice diminished by drugs, he lives tormented by the ghosts of the past. That’s when music reporter Dave Braden (Ewan McGregor) bursts into his life, and they both embark on an adventure to try to retrieve a stolen tape that contained the recording of the artist’s latest compositions.

El 2020 es va organitzar una xerrada per comentar l’estat del jazz, de sempre en situació de debilitat enfront altres gèneres musicals. La trobada es va cancel·lar per la pandèmia, i algunes de les preguntes que ens plantejàvem, ara resulten més inquietants que mai: queda espai pel jazz en les programacions? Sobreviuran els clubs? Aconseguirà el jazz recuperar espai als mitjans? Sense pràcticament concerts, el jazz mantindrà un públic fidel? Quins canals tenen els músics per mostrar la seva música?

Will jazz be able to regain space in the media? With virtually no concerts, will jazz keep a loyal audience? What channels do musicians have to showcase their music?

‘SLIPPING INTO DARKNESS’
My Special Guest, GLYNIS LE’FLORE, is an American Singer, Songwriter, Musician and Actress, from West Memphis, Arkansas, who was raised by her mother, Anna Le’Flore, and her grandmother, Ora Lee Miller, in New Orleans in the cradle of very strong musical traditions. Her earliest influences whilst learning to play clarinet and guitar were Louis Armstrong, Wynton Marsalis and Pete Fountain. But it was whilst serving in the Medical Corps of the US Army that she was able to hone her vocal talent. After almost 14 years of active service, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Her lifelong love of the music of the big bands has resulted in her current role as featured vocalist with the LA-based Socha’s Bloc, a big band group, conceived and directed by bassist and songwriter, Dr. Alexander Gershman, which aims to deliver a sound that is consistently big, boisterous, full of spirit and rich in everything that makes Jazz an American phenomenon. Glynis is no stranger to the grand stage having performed with legendary names such as Stevie Wonder, Dionne Warwick and the late Natalie Cole. Her rare versatility in timbre and range permits Glynis to bring the qualities of warmth, finesse with excitement and strength in renditions from Ballads to Blues, Bebop to Broadway! Glynis has also established the Foundation, ‘The Song Therapist LLC’, which empowers individuals by using musical interventions to improve their emotional wellbeing and problem-solving skills. Currently, she is the lead vocalist with Bogey & The Viceroys, one of Atlanta’s top bands.
