“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 !

When I was growing up it was known for its hard working factorymen, gritty old pubs and the famous Vasas soccer club. Two fantastic guitarists were born here: Béla Radics who brought Jimi Hendrix’s music behind the Iron Curtain, and Tibor Tátrai who is undoubtedly one of the greatest Hungarian guitarists of all time.”

Niki Vörös Quintet concert
“With 2 fantastic albums and 2 brilliantly successful gigs at London’s legendary 606 Club behind her, NIKI VÖRÖS is a true jazz singer, the real thing, who is capable of turning any tune into high quality jazz. She can always be trusted to dream up a refreshingly unusual repertoire. On her first album she sang highly original and fresh jazz interpretations of songs by the late Michel Legrand. Her second album is dedicated to the songs of the African-American singer-songwriter-actress and civil rights activist, Abbey Lincoln. Like Abbey Lincoln, Niki is relentlessly honest and when she projects passion, pain, humour or irony it all comes from the heart.” – Peter Pallai

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.


The second concert in April 2020 is dedicated to the “classical” piano trio with piano, bass and drums. Steve Kuhn, born in Brooklyn in 1938, is one of the outstanding representatives of that trio tradition that Bill Evans founded in the 1950s together with bassist Scott LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian. An introverted and lyrical sensibility finds its place in jazz, characterized by impressionism, cool jazz and an equal balance of instruments.

Wir feiern diesen Tag mit einem innovativen Quartett, das den Geist unserer Zeit atmet und mit viel Inspiration einen von allen denkbaren Musikstilen belebten Sound kreiert. Spoom wurde 2005 als Trio gegründet; seit 2018 wurde dieses durch den Einbezug des Altosaxophons zum Quartett, welches nun die Freiräume und Möglichkeiten der Kompositionen des Bandleaders in den verschiedensten Spielarten virtuos auslotet. Wesentliches Element ist dabei die Improvisation, die das Terrain ausserhalb der komponierten Form erforscht und umsetzt. www.ronnygraupe.com

We celebrate this day with an innovative quartet that breathes the spirit of our time and creates a sound that is alive with all conceivable music styles. Spoom was founded in 2005 as a trio; Since 2018, this has become a quartet through the inclusion of the alto saxophone, which now virtually explores the freedom and possibilities of the band leader’s compositions in a wide variety of variations. An essential element is improvisation, which explores and implements the terrain outside of the composed form. www.ronnygraupe.com
