Algeria BLUES N’ SOUL – JEAN-JACQUES MILTEAU

Jean-Jacques Milteau, pape incontesté de l’harmonica, possède une technique époustouflante et une inventivité sans borne qui le voient naviguer dans les univers les plus éclectiques, valsant allègrement du blues à la country, des rythmes sud-africains aux mélodies celtiques. Sa virtuosité est éblouissante, mais limiter ses qualités à celles d’un Paganini du diatonique serait réducteur. Ici comme là, ni envolées gratuites, ni effets de manches, mais une émotion pure, habitée et sensible.

###

Jean-Jacques Milteau, undisputed pope of the harmonica, has a breathtaking technique and inventiveness without limits, sailing him into the most eclectic worlds: blithely blues of the country from South African rhythms to Celtic melodies. His virtuosity is dazzling, but limiting his qualities to those of a diatonic Paganini would be reductive. Here as there, neither free flights nor sleeves, but a pure emotion, inhabited and sensitive.

Band created in Brussels, the “Amicale of New Orleans” swings without restraint through this hundred-year-old inheritance. Far from the surges of free and more technical styles that  jazz will develop later, the New Orleans style is dancing and accessible. Sometimes fervent, sometimes romantic, it is this diversity and this energy that enthuses the group. Song, humor and interactions with the public are also an integral part of this universe which they play brilliantly.

Olivier Defays & Philippe Chagne (saxophones ténor), Philippe Petit (orgue Hammond) & Yves Nahon (batterie)

Quoi de plus beau qu’un son de saxophone ténor ? Deux sons de saxophones ténors (!) qui dialoguent, s’interpellent en joutes amicales ou sonnent en chœur… et cette formule a inspiré de nombreux grands saxophonistes au cours de l’histoire du jazz.
L’esthétique de Men In Bop est bien ancrée dans la tradition du jazz des années 50/60, un jazz qui privilégie le « groove » et une virtuosité

###

Olivier Defays & Philippe Chagne (tenor saxophones), Philippe Petit (Hammond organ) & Yves Nahon (drums)

What is more beautiful than the sound of a tenor saxophone? Two tenor saxophones (!) which converse, challenge each other to friendly jousts or play in chorus…this formula has inspired numerous great saxophonists over the course of jazz history.
The aesthetic of “Men in Bop” is anchored in the jazz tradition of the 50’s and 60’s–jazz that favors the virtuosity and “the groove.”

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.

Hungary Nemzetközi JazzNap | Barabás Lőrinc Quartet

Barabás Lőrinc Quartet

A Barabás Lőrinc Quartet pop-os jazz világa izgalmas instrumentális zene, elektronikus fűszerezéssel. Groove-os ritmusok, lüktető basszusfutamok, a szintetizátor és a trombita megannyi hangszíne a 70-es évek improvizatív jazzrock stílusjegyeivel átitatott sajátos zenei irányt teremt.

A zenekar tagjai:
Barabás Lőrinc – trombita, elektronika
Cséry Zoltán – billentyűk
Herr Attila – basszusgitár
Nagy Zsolt– dob

###

The Barabás Lőrinc Quartet’s pop-jazz style is an exciting instrumental music with electronic seasonings. Groove rhythms, pulsating bass guitars, synthesizer and trumpet evoke the peculiar musical direction of the 1970’s improvised “jazzrock” style.

Members of the band:
Lőrinc Barabás – trumpet, electronics
Zoltán Cséry – keys
Attila Herr – bass guitar
Great Zsolt – drums

Giornata internazionale Jazz 2018
Il Circolo delle Quinte
Il Linguaggio Universale del Jazz

29 Aprile Auditorium RAI Palermo – ore 18.00

Gli artisti narrano il proprio vissuto e la propria personalità attraverso forme artistiche e culturali come:
Teatro, utilizzando combinazioni variabili di parola, suono, gestualità, musica, danza e vocalità;
Musica, con l’improvvisazione e la sorpresa, elementi senza i quali nessun concetto melodico-armonico potrebbe essere definito Jazz;
Yoga, l’ascolto e il contatto profondo con la nostra essenza. L’espressione esteriore del sentire interiore. La trasmissione di qualcosa di autentico che rivela la nostra vera natura.
La concretizzazione di un’esperienza in cui si vuole condividere con il pubblico la libertà dello spirito e del pensiero, alla ricerca della propria vera natura; un ritorno a quello che siamo sempre stati.

Kyrgyzstan Not Black and White: Lost Recordings … In Gratitude to Louis Armstrong

“Not Black and White: Lost Recordings … In Gratitude to Louis Armstrong” is a jazz-musical, written and performed by Clyde R. Forsberg Jr., now a professor of history and cultural studies at the American University of Central Asia (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan). The play was first performed in Canada. His personal story of growing up in an abusive, patriarchal, racist home underscores the idea of jazz as deliverance. The Central Asian production will add to this ethno-jazz and transnational elements.

As an International institution, our school calendar includes all year round celebrations that are taking place around the world. We have decided that our participation in the International Jazz Day would be of a high importance to our school community.
We considered that this event should take place at a bigger scale and that is the reason of its inclusion in our Annual Concert 2018. Students from different classes would be performing a Jazz Song in a choir.

Russia International Jazz Day Easy Winners Ragtime Band in JFC Jazz Club

Совершенно уникальный состав. В России существует великое множество коллективов, исполняющих джаз 40-х -70-х, но почти никто не обращается в своём творчестве к истокам и корням. Easy Winners – исключение из правил. Помимо оригинальности музыкального репертуара (джаз 20-х – 30-х и его истоки), “Easy Winners” выделяется самобытностью своего музыкального инструментария: вместо привычных широкой публике барабанов – стиральная доска, вместо контрабаса – уникальный самодельный инструмент.

###

Absolutely unique composition. In Russia, there are a great number of bands performing jazz from the 40s to the 70s, but almost no one turns to their sources and roots in their work. Easy Winners is an exception to the rules. In addition to the originality of the musical repertoire (jazz of the 20’s and 30’s and its origins), “Easy Winners” stands out for the originality of their musical instruments: instead of the drums that are customary for the general public, a washboard, instead of a double bass, a unique homemade instrument.

Simon Wyrsch setzt der Klarinette im modernen Jazz ein Denkmal. Kaum einer hierzulande gibt in vergleichlich spannender, virtuoser und kreativer Manier der Klarinette eine Stimme im Jazz. Die bisweilen aufkommende Assoziation zum Dixieland ist im Nu verflogen, wenn man seinem ausdrucksstarken und vielseitigen Spiel zuhört.
www.simonwyrsch.ch

###

Simon Wyrsch commemorates the clarinet in modern jazz. Hardly anyone in this country gives a voice in jazz in a similarly exciting, virtuoso and creative manner to the clarinet. The occasional association with Dixieland disappears in no time, listening to his expressive and eclectic play.

The perfect balance of liquor and bubbles, the French 75 has been a staple since it first made an appearance at the famous New York Bar in Paris in the 20’s.

• “Diva” – In 1995, Ella Fitzgerald, The Queen of Jazz was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. She was a diva in the best way possible and so is this cocktail which was one of her favorites. Chivas Regal, Lychee Juice, Raspberry Puree, Fresh Lemon Juice, Dash of Simple Syrup.
