Australia Echoes of the Jazz Age: Gold Coast

Starring John Bell and Simon Tedeschi
And Special Guest Mandy Bishop

The 1920s, or the Jazz Age, was one of the most thrilling decades in history.

In the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald, who invented the term, it was an age of miracles, an age of art, an age of excess and an age of satire. The dazzling events of the era lasted for ten years until, as he put it so evocatively, they leaped to a spectacular death with the Wall Street crash in October 1929. Nowhere is this period better described than in Echoes of the Jazz Age, Fitzgerald’s famous essay on the Roaring Twenties.

And nowhere is the decade’s remarkable aura more brilliantly evoked than in John Bell and Simon Tedeschi’s performance of the same title, in words and music.

Austria Spaced Out on Jazz

10. International Jazz Day activities ran throughout the year at various venues and were conceptualized to respond to lockdowns and restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Madeleine Joel Kaindl, singer, musician and composer expressed the Zeitgeist in this way: “Music takes on the role of energetic reunification. People meet again, look forward to concerts, and look forward to the community.

Music will be healing; music will make people forget the severity and consequences of the pandemic for a few hours. Music means salvation, balm for the soul, joie de vivre, light-heartedness.” Autobiography by was composed by Madeleine during the pandemic.

The UNESCO Club Vienna inaugurated the 1st International Jazz Day in Austria with partner That’s Jazz with the Monday Session to support the next generation of jazz musicians.  We teamed up again this year to commemorate the 10th IJD with The Other Armstrong – The Next Generation of Sound Chapter 2.  The composer Paul Urbanek on piano was joined by Robin Gadermaieer (b,eb) and Lukas Boeck (dr).  Robin and Lukas had both participated in the 1st IJD and are now accomplished musicians on the jazz scene in Austria!

Activities were held throughout 2021 included live concerts, poster exhibit as well as the jazz-inspired action painting series Time Signatures.

Ö1 Dave Brubeck’s 100th birthday radio session The FeMale Jazz Art Quartet play Brubeck at the Kulturpicknick organized by Dorly Kapeller with Barbara Rektenwald piano, Swantje Lampert tenor sax, Peter Strutzenberger contrabass  with Wolfgang Wehner of Jazztrio.at  substituting on drums.

The musical vision of the band is to explore a modern interpretation of masterpieces from those two musical genres through the fusion of acoustic and electric sounds.

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.

Núñez on trumpet and flugelhorn will be accompanied by the well-known musicians and friends, Corey Allen on piano, Pengbian Sang on bass, and Guy Frómeta on drums.

France In the Heart We Trust, In Music We Trust Virtual

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.

Germany Jazzzz Lunch*Break. In memoriam Manu Dibango Virtual

On the occasion of International Jazz Day 2021, the German Commission for UNESCO invites you to 60 Minutes for Eyes and Ears as part of the UNESCO ResiliArt series. This hour will begin with a tribute to Manu Dibango, who, as a UNESCO Artist for Peace, has been passionately committed to the goals of UNESCO with his artistic and personal work since 2004. He succumbed to the Covid 19 virus in March 2020. With a view to the former German capital Bonn as a genius loci, a jazz trip will take you figuratively and musically to places of democracy. We’ll make a foray through Baden-Baden, take the ‘Steamtrain’, and ask how far gender equality has progressed in the German jazz scene. We look forward to your participation!

Im Rahmen des Internationalen Jazz-Tags am Freitag, 30. April präsentieren ab 20 Uhr der Moosacher Kulturverein „DIE LINIE 1“ e.V. und das Kultur- und Bürgerhaus Pelkovenschlössl zwei renommierte Jazz-Musiker*innen via Livestream aus dem Kulturhaus. Zu Besuch sind das TUIJA KOMI DUO und das ANGELA AVETISYAN QUARTET.

Das erste Set um 20 Uhr spielen Tuija Komi und Stephan Weiser und das Publikum darf sich auf „Those Fantastic Songs“ freuen. Wenn die großartige finnische Sängerin und Wahlmünchnerin Tuija Komi die Bühne betritt, dann tut sie das mit ungeheurer Präsenz. Allein die Kraft ihrer Stimme schafft eine Atmosphäre, die dem Publikum Zugang zu der Welt des nordischen Landes der Mitternachtssonne gewährt. Tuija Komi tritt im Duo mit dem sympathischen und versierten Musikerkollegen Stephan Weiser auf.

Um ca. 20.50 Uhr startet das 2. Set mit dem Angela Avetisyan Quartet. Die armenische Trompeterin bringt ihren eigenen Klang auf die Bühne. Mit ihrer Musik spielt sie sich in die Herzen der Zuhörer, mit höchster Virtuosität und klarer Einfachheit verwischt sie die Grenzen zwischen Menschen und Musikrichtungen. Misha Antonov, Maximilian Hirning und Simon Popp komplettieren das Quartet.

2011 ernannte die Organisation der Vereinten Nationen (UNESCO) den 30. April offiziell zum Internationalen Jazz-Tag, um den Jazz und seine diplomatische Rolle bei der Vereinigung von Menschen in allen Teilen der Welt hervorzuheben. Der Kulturverein „DIE LINIE 1“ e.V.  und das Pelkovenschlössl beteiligen sich erstmals am Internationalen Jazz-Tag.

Der Eintritt kostet 15 € (ermäßigt 10€ – für Schüler*innen, Student*innen und München Pass Besitzer*innen) pro Link – gerne auch pro Person.

The TUIJA KOMI DUO and the ANGELA AVETISYAN QUARTET are visiting.
Tuija Komi and Stephan Weiser play the first set at 8 p.m. and the audience can look forward to “Those Fantastic Songs”. When the great Finnish singer and Munich resident Tuija Komi takes the stage, she does it with a tremendous presence. The power of her voice alone creates an atmosphere that gives the audience access to the world of the Nordic land of the midnight sun. Tuija Komi appears in a duo with the sympathetic and accomplished musician Stephan Weiser.
The 2nd set with the Angela Avetisyan Quartet starts at around 8:50 pm. The Armenian trumpeter brings her own sound to the stage. With her music she plays her way into the hearts of the audience, with the highest virtuosity and clear simplicity she blurs the boundaries between people and styles of music. Misha Antonov, Maximilian Hirning and Simon Popp complete the quartet.
In 2011, the United Nations Organization (UNESCO) officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role in bringing people together in all parts of the world. The cultural association “DIE LINIE 1” e.V. and the Pelkovenschlössl take part in the International Jazz Day for the first time.

Still in organizing the project the idea it´s born to to emphasise the connection between the two passions of yoga and jazz, highlighting the forces generated by one hour of yoga and one hour of listening to jazz. The combination of the two opens up frontiers in the heart and soul and leads us to a healthy inner world, which is expressed in the realisation of an equally healthy outer world… Jazz represents music where each musician is closely connected in a domino cascade with the sound of the others, each time creating a different version of the same music, it sustains a unique and profound rhythm that opens sound barriers for the listener. Jazz tempos caress the deepest emotions, supporting the performer, the sound, the listening…

Il trio, che comprende il giovane e talentuoso alto sassofonista Tommaso Profeta più il contrabbassista Stefano Profeta ed il sassofonista tenore Claudio Bianzino, è lieto di celebrare il decimo anniversario dell’International Jazz Day con un breve evento che si terrà alle ore 9:00 am (GMT+2).
Green Dolphin Street è un brano musicale del 1947 scritto come tema portante per la colonna sonora dell’omonimo film del compositore polacco Bronislaw Kaper. Anche se già reinterpretato nel 1956 da Ahmad Jamal, non è stato un brano di grande successo fino alla sua rivisitazione da parte di Miles Davis nel 1958.
Buon ascolto e buon #JazzDay!

Postacchini is the regular baritoneist of the orchestra, but his mastery extends to the whole family of reeds and the flute. Both have a deep knowledge of jazz and its history, which translates into countless collaborations, even stylistically different, and in constant didactic activity. With these assumptions, the idea of ​​recreating the tonal impact of two champions such as Pepper Adams and Jimmy Knepper had immediate and enthusiastic support. The two marked the evolution of their respective instruments; Adams & Knepper: both Masters of baritone sax & trombone!

Norway Ivan Mazuze Band With Guests – Live stream Virtual

På globusen er det et godt stykke fra Mosambik til Oslo, og det blir ikke noe særlig kortere av å ta turen om Cape Town. Musikalsk sett har distansen likevel vist seg å være forbausende kort. Saksofonisten Ivan Mazuze hadde allerede en lang karriere i hjemlandet da han for mer enn ti år siden fulgte hjertet og reiste nordover.

Her har han blitt en vital del av hovedstadens musikkliv og til markeringen av den internasjonale jazzdagen har Ivan håndplukket tre gjestemusikere, alle bosatt i Oslo, men med ulike kulturelle og musikalske bakgrunner. Sammen vil Ivans kvartett og gjestemusikerne vise at jazz og improvisasjon kommuniserer på tvers av kulturer, og løfte frem det fantastiske mangfoldet vi har i musikk-Oslo i dag, hjemme hos deg!


On the globe, it is a good distance from Mozambique to Oslo, and it will not be much shorter to take the trip around Cape Town. Musically, the distance has nevertheless proved to be surprisingly short. Saxophonist Ivan Mazuze already had a long career in his home country when he followed his heart more than ten years ago and traveled north.

Here, he has become a vital part of the capital’s music life and for the celebration of the international jazz day, Ivan has hand-picked three guest musicians, all living in Oslo, but with different cultural and musical backgrounds. Together, Ivan’s quartet and the guest musicians will show that jazz and improvisation communicate across cultures, and highlight the fantastic diversity we have in music Oslo today, at your home!

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!

Slovenia Jure Praper: Liquid Carpet Virtual

Jure Prapper: Liquid Carpet – closing concert of the 16th Slovenian Jazz Festival.

After twenty years of cooperation in many casts of various musical genres, Jure Praper finally manifested the idea of his entire author’s cast. Liquid Carpet isn’t just a band, it’s Prapper’s media through which it can be musically expressed in the purest, primary form, unbothered with musical genres and guidelines. Spontaneity was the only one when writing music for the first-grader – indulge and give room to the idea, develop and nurture it. The jazz approach was present in open form and improvisation. But music doesn’t go into free jazz, because it’s always backed up with strong rhythmic basics that draw from funk, blues, rock, Balkans,… That’s why experienced musicians coming from the same environment were invited to realize the idea, known each other for years, and performed together in many other characters, recordings, and projects.

Cast: Jure Praper – guitar, music, arrangements, Matja ž Mlakar – saxophones, David Novak – bass, Matic Črešnik – drums
Guests: Alia Cycon (USA) – oud, Timotej Kotnik – trumpet, Sašo Vollmaier – piano, Vid Jamnik – vibraphone

Slovenia Vid Jamnik: Urgent Detergent Virtual

Urgent Detergent – a quartet of vibraphonist Vid Jamnik, which in its newest formulation contains some of the finest young Slovenian musicians, who until recently lived in New York City.

Founded at Berklee College of Music, the band has toured in France, recorded for the compilation CD of Berklee’s Jazz Revelation Records, been featured as the best student compositions and groups, was a finalist of the European Jazz Competition in Holland, and took 2nd place in the 7 Virtual Jazz Competition.

In spite of the changes in the line-up, the quartet stays true to the instrumentation of vibraphone – piano – bass – drums and to playing original music, which, quite contrary to popular belief, bears no similarity to soap opera jingles… most of the time.

South Africa Sagiya International Jazz Day Festival

All the way from South Africa Durban, Sagiya Foundation and Mazisi Kunene Foundation are collaborating with Independent Creatives and organizations locally and Internationally to bring you International Jazz Day Celebration, A Tribute to a living Legend Madala Kunene. Organized in unity to celebrate a living Legend, to preserve the local creative industry, and to help manage the pressure caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

A legend is someone who leaves behind an unforgettable impression on others. They touch lives, they’re remembered, they’re cherished. Madala Kunene, commonly referred to as the king of the Zulu guitar, lives in a house in the middle of a newly gentrified suburb just outside of Durban in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. He is often described as an mbaqanga or maskandi artist—something he personally hates. Kunene is an artist who is constantly shifting between musical habitats. He has no interest in genre specifications and prescriptions. Instead, his brand of blues operates in an opaque space where cool jazz, maskandi, mbaqanga, and a myriad of East Coast blues intersect. “Music that’s one-dimensional never connects with people,” Kunene says. “I grew up listening to a lot of Duke Ellington and The Beatles. Even then, I realized that this music was from elsewhere but that it also had bits and pieces and sounds that I could recognize from my own life. And that was liberating because it allowed me to merge things from different sounds that I liked, giving me ownership of that process.” This merger of sounds is something Kunene has dubbed “The Madalaline.”

Kunene is best known for his 1995 debut album Konko Man (Strong Man). “It was an expression of how I was at the time and my views on a lot of things. I am surprised by how people still look to that album as a blueprint for my sound,” he says. Konko Man sounds and feels like both the start of something (post-Apartheid feelings of isolation) and the end of 1980s Zulu throwaway pop. It’s also the most powerful record in Kunene’s recorded discography. It’s the kind of album that tends to come out when a musician has spent years preparing for it. Kunene was born in 1951 in Mkhumbane, a vibrant mixed community just outside of inner Durban. The son of a carpenter, Kunene was raised by his grandmother—a staunch academic who wanted him to be something of a bookworm. At the age of eight, Kunene and some members of his extended family were trucked off by the Apartheid government to go live in the then relatively new township of KwaMashu. “People can’t imagine what it’s like when you see bulldozers demolish your home in the middle of the night,” recalls Kunene. “The worst thing was that when they moved us, they came at night and packed my family into the back of a truck and then went to another area to pick up another family there and so on. So you were not just separated from your home, you were stripped of your friends and neighbors in the process. It was a very calculated act,” he adds. As a meditation on his history, Kunene recently released 1959. The album explores dense and often melancholic subject matter, especially Kunene’s own history as a victim of forced removal. “I’ve never spoken about those experiences in my music in an earnest way. I wanted to recall them and most importantly make a personal album that was looking internally at my personal history rather than looking out,” says Kunene. 1959 is a blues album with slightly more muscle—a personal catharsis and an attempt to exercise the muscle of memory through music. Insistent and unrelenting, 1959 is Kunene’s urban war cry. It is a portrait of the artist as a not-so-young man of faith, a sonic investigation that tries to make sense of the gradual process of sanitizing history—how the real past is purged for the sake of a historical sound bite. “Music is the best medium to record and tell history. As African people, the way we know and understand our past is very influenced by music,” Kunene says. “So if I can add one layer of context that can help in understanding this period in our history, then that is great.”

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 Jazz en temps de pandèmia
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?


Jazz in times of pandemic
In 2020, a talk was organized to discuss the state of jazz, always in a situation of weakness compared to other musical genres. The meeting was canceled due to the pandemic, and some of the questions we asked ourselves are now more disturbing than ever: is there room for jazz in the programming? Will the clubs survive? 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?

compositions form an exciting mix of nordic roots with a spanish-phrygian flare. Since then the repertoire has expanded and it is now clear that Jonsson has developed her own personal voice as a trumpet player as well as a composer.

In 2013 he recorded his award-winning CD “Le Ngoma” in Basel – a homage to South African jazz and the musicians who shaped Feya Faku, but also a testament to the friendship and long-term collaboration.

The “Embassy Jazz Series” is a multi-cultural, colorfully creative potpourri of artists, countries and music. The series concept was conceived over two decades ago when the United States discontinued their Jazz Ambassadors diplomacy program and began importing overseas jazz artists to America. Over the past two decades these overseas jazz artists have flourished under their own nation’s banners but now we have a rare opportunity to present six embassies and eighteen artists over one night.
