Country/Territory Event Venue
Germany Kurws & Gazzelle of Death

SOG – innovative Musik feiert der Welttag des Jazz -wie gewohnt mit einem ganz persönlichen Blick auf dem Genre. Obwohl ihre Ursprünge irgendwo im Jazz und Punk zu verorten sind, hat sich die Musik des Trios Kurws längst in experimentellere Bereiche bewegt. Die 2008 gegründete Breslauer Band, dekonstruiert mittels Gitarre, Schlagzeug und Bass vertraute Motive und liebgewonnene Hörgewohnheiten zu Geräuschen und Emotionen, um diese schließlich zu rauen, hypnotisierenden Gefügen zu verschmelzen.

SOG – Innovative Music celebrates the International Jazz Day – as usual with a very personal view of the genre. Although their origins are to be found somewhere in jazz and punk, the music of Kurw’s trio has long moved into more experimental areas. The Breslauer Band, founded in 2008, deconstructed by means of guitar, drums and bass familiar motives and cherished listening habits to sounds and emotions, to finally merge these into rough, hypnotizing structures.

Germany International Jazz Day in Niedersachsen

[#jazzdaynds] Jazz – an international art form, diverse, empowering and powerful. Niedersachsen – a northern German state, diverse, engaging and 8 million strong. For International Jazz Day we asked all jazz musicians to come to the streets and celebrate. We asked our venues and festivals to set up events. We asked our big bands to join in. On April, 30th Niedersachsen will celebrate Jazz.

 

To create a memorable UNSECO Jazz Day, John Marcussen-Wulf composed a piece called “Dr. John’s Revenge” for a nationwide Flashmob. Many cities in Lower Saxony take part. Its written for various voices and instruments and can be downloaded under the sent link below. There’s also a recording, played by the composer and his big band called “Fette Hupe” from a concert they gave in March.
