Pour ses 25 ans, le Festival s’associe à la célébration de la JIJ 2017, avec une journée exceptionnelle le 30 avril, par la mise en oeuvre de projets inédits qui font la fierté du festival (master-class, jazz-school, créations musicales, jazz-performances, concerts…) avec de nouvelles collaborations entre grands musiciens de la scène jazz, d’ici et d’ailleurs…

Parce que le Jazz ça se fête!!

Inspiré par les collaborations du chanteur Joe Williams avec le trompettiste Harry « Sweets » Edison, deux piliers de l’orchestre de Count Basie, le quintet est conçu comme un « Big Band de poche » et ses arrangements sont pensés comme des réductions de ceux de Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Quincy Jones, Marty Paich, Neal Hefti.
Une magnifique soirée hommage au Jazz en cette journée qui lui est dédiée.

Inspired by the collaborations between singer Joe Williams and trumpeter Harry “Sweets” Edison, two pillars of the Count Basie orchestra, Campos’ quintet is known as a “pocket big band” and its arrangements are conceived as reductions of those from Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Quincy Jones, Marty Paich, and Neal Hefti.

Germany Erna Rot & Band

The Prinzenhofkeller venue will host a concert by vocalist and composer Erna Rot and her band.

“Erna Rot ist gebürtige Berlinerin und lebt als Sängerin, Komponistin & Autorin in Köln. Sie hat Jazzgesang u.a. bei Efrat Alony, Lisa Bassenge , Fay Claassen und Anne Hartkamp studiert. Als Erna Rot hat sie sich auf die Suche nach ihren musikalischen Wurzeln gemacht. Im Koffer immer dabei der Jazz. Dabei ging sie durch fremde Zeiten, in die Hinterhoftheater der goldenen 20ern, weiter in ihre Kindheit Ostberlins, über Prag bis nach Memphis, um die amerikanische Mentalität zu entdecken, die Musik mehr zu verstehen, um schließlich im Hier und Jetzt zurückzukehren. Dabei entstanden sind Geschichten über das Leben mit all seinen Facetten und Schönheiten. Erna Rot singt auf Deutsch – ohne Schnörkel, unverblümt mit einfacher Sprache, aber manchmal erschreckendem Tiefgang. Über Scharlatane, Wichtigtuer, Nörgeljane und Miesepeter. Frech, rotzig, ironisch und durchaus etwas böse. Musikalisch ist Jazz ihr Boden, den sie zusammen mit ihrer Band bestehend aus Simon Doetsch, Peter Kowal, Stefan Rey und Felix Günther bunt mit den Charakteren des französischen Chansons, Big Band Swing, Bossa Nova, Blues und Avantgarde-Pop nach Lust und Laune bemalt. Aber vor allem ist es Musik, vor allem ist sie authentisch und vor allem ist sie Erna! Ihr Debutalbum erschien Ende 2015 und wurde von Rundfunk und Presse sehr gut aufgenommen und besprochen. Neben der Erna_Presse_Band_kleinMusik schreibt sie unter ihrem bürgerlichen Namen Drehbücher für Spielfilme, ist Autorin im Dokumentarbereich und Studentin”

Germany Jacqui Naylor Quartett

Die Sängerin Jacqui Naylor aus San Francisco hat auf überraschende Weise Neuland erschlossen. Musik, die aus Pop und Jazz sattsam bekannt ist, hat sie etwas verschraubt, und schon klingt es neu in den Ohren. ’Acoustic Smashing’ ist das, das Singen von Jazzstandards-Texten über Rock- und Popsongs und umgekehrt. Ihre „akustische Vermischung“ vom großen amerikanischen Songbook mit Rock- und Popklassikern bringt beide Bereiche in einer noch nie gehörten Form zusammen.

Italy Roy Paci e Mauro Ottolini – #Crossroads2017

“Penta Blues”, ideato da Roy Paci e Mauro Ottolini, è un viaggio lungo le orme musicali di William Christopher Handy (1873-1958), che con la sua prolifica vena compositiva contribuì a definire la forma del blues come la conosciamo oggi. Non per nulla si è guadagnato l’appellativo di ‘padre del blues’. Quello scritto da Handy e ora reinterpretato da Roy Paci e Ottolini è un jazz primigenio dalla vocazione corale e dall’intensità primordiale.

###

“Penta Blues”, created by Roy Paci and Mauro Ottolini, is a journey along the musical footsteps of William Christopher Handy (1873-1958), who with his prolific musical talents helped define the form of the blues as we know it today.

“Born in Mexico City, Marco Durán studied at the National Conservatory of Music in Mexico between 1984 and 1995 and was part of BIN (Berklee International Network), from 1999 to 2007.
MARCO DURÁN (REVIEWS)
‘Marco Durán is an innovator and a creative guitar player… One of the best i heard in Mexico!!!’
LARRY CARLTON
‘Marco Duran album, “Al Otro Lado”, can be the most outstanding phenomenon of Mexican Jazz in a good time, besides of being a significant contribution to the world history of jazz guitar’
EL ECONOMISTA
‘It is important to remember, from time to time, that the quantity of sounds that can be extracted from a musical instrument, is inexhaustible. That is what Marco Duran does with his acoustic guitar; accompanied by Aaron Cruz on the double bass, on “Al Otro Lado”. It includes ten themes, oscillating between contemporary music and jazz. The album keeps a high quality.’
MILENIO
‘His debut album is just splendid and it’s about something simple and thankful: listen the guitar, its audible skin semi-covered by a good bass, letting his depth become the owner of our ears. Simple and complicate. That’s why this album is worth it.’
LA REVISTA
‘Marco Durán is a complete musician who performs his work, not only as an excellent guitar player, but also, as a very refined and mature composer…’
EUGENIO TOUSSAINT”

Turkey Flapper Swing feat. Antti Sarpila

Nevin Hetmanek (vo), Antti Sarpila (clt), Tamer Temel (s), Tomas Hetmanek (g), Erhan Erbelger (g), Volkan Topakoğlu (b).

Flapper Swing is a quintet following in the footsteps of famous french jazz artists Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and New Orleans’s expatriate Sidney Bechet. These five musicians were brought together by their passion for the taunting acoustic sounds of gypsy swing . Flapper Swing’s music is a sweet blend of manouche guitars, wild soprano saxophone, and sensitive silklike vocals, supported by deep woody hum of double bass. For more intimate settings, the band can also perform as a trio of two guitars and a vocalist. In their performances, Flapper Swing is striving to bring the audience an atmosphere of the roaring twenties and ballroom parties, the time when jazz was still fun. The band on April 30 is going to feature a great clarinetist from Finland, Antti Sarpila.

Many overlook the more subtle sonic contributions that jazz musicians made to this cause.

Tickets available by phone, or from our website.
FREE VALET PARKING!

Johnny O’Neal, born October 10, 1956 in Detroit, Michigan, is an American neo-bop jazz pianist and vocalist. His playing ranges from the technically virtuosic to the tenderest of ballad interpretations. Though unique in style, he is influenced by many jazz elders, including Oscar Peterson and Art Tatum. He has performed with Art Blakey, Russell Malone, Clark Terry, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Brown, Nancy Wilson, Joe Pass and Kenny Burrell. On the recommendation of Oscar Peterson, O’Neal portrayed Art Tatum in the 2004 movie Ray, convincingly recreating Tatum’s sound on the song “Yesterdays”. In an interview, pianist Mulgrew Miller said, “In my generation of musicians there are two artists who are probably the most naturally talented. One is Kenny Garrett, the saxophonist. The other is pianist Johnny O’Neal. This concert is in the beautiful Capital Room and food and drink are available in the cabaret setting.
