“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

“Non impari molto a stare sempre nello stesso posto”
Il cantautore Jack Grelle questo motto lo ha incarnato sia nel suo approccio alla vita che nella musica.
Per anni Grelle ha viaggiato di straforo sui treni e ha fatto l’autostop attraverso gli Stati Uniti, immerso in storie e scrivendo canzoni basate sulle persone che ha incontrato durante i suoi viaggi.
Il suo spirito selvaggio e stradaiolo ha influenzato la sua musica che combina elementi di tradizione country, folk e rock’n roll. “Volevo essere un moderno ma tradizionale troubadour”.

###

“You don’t learn much to always stay in the same place”
The singer-songwriter Jack Grelle embodied this motto both in his approach to life and in music.
For years Grelle has traveled extensively on trains and hitchhiked across the United States, steeped in stories and writing songs based on the people she met on her travels.
His wild and street spirit has influenced his music which combines elements of country, folk and rock’n roll tradition. “I wanted to be a modern but traditional troubadour.”

“On the bare rocks and the glaciers” is the Francesco Chiapperini new project inspired by the popular music dedicated to alpine and war. The title of the work is taken from an Alpine Prayer.
Its peculiarity lies in the choice to play with a wind-only formation (with the exception of the presence of a violin).
The sextet ranges between original songs, reworkings and repertoires that make the mountain the protagonist of the notes.
Its music wants to recreate the organic nature of a choir, that of the Alpine ones.

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.

United Kingdom Ashley Henry

For this International Jazz Day Special, Turner Sims is delighted to welcome London pianist Ashley Henry with his trio. One of a new generation of musicians that have been raised with a wide range of influences, Ashley is clearly influenced by hip-hop but has his roots firmly in jazz. Following the success of the 26-year-old’s Easter EP, the genre-blurring pianist heads to Turner Sims with music from his debut album Beautiful Vinyl Hunter.

‘My music is a straight-up reflection of who I am; London in all its mixed-up glory. The immigrant in me has musical roots traced back to the 1940’s, so it’s important my music reflects that jazz narrative across different genres and generations.’ Ashley Henry

‘It’s just incredible.’ Gilles Peterson

Named with the word meaning “exchange” in the Antillean Creole language spoken on vocalist Malika Tirolien’s Caribbean home island of Guadeloupe, Bokanté is one of the latest omnivorous conglomerations assembled by bassist and Snarky Puppy mastermind Michael League. Combining the Snarky Puppy guitar line and lap steel virtuoso Roosevelt Collier with a trio of percussionists including longtime Paul Simon hand drummer Jamey Haddad and Banda Magda/Snarky Puppy multi-instrumentalist Keita Ogawa, Bokanté brings a hugely dynamic multicultural musical approach that marries the electric blues of Led Zeppelin with Afropop and folkloric Caribbean styles, unified by the soaring vocals of Tirolien.

United States Carol Steffens-A Journey Through Jazz Artist Opening

Carol Steffens – A Journey Through Jazz
Artist Exhibit Opening 6-8 pm
Mixed Media Collage
Using bits and scrapes of paper and mixed media collage techniques, I have created a collection of visual representations illustrating memories and emotions of my love affair with jazz music. My method involves using pieces of ripped or cut recycled paper from printed material I have saved over the years, and reassemble and glue the pieces back together again in an entirely new way. I draw many of my inspirations from my collection of saved printed material including jazz journals, concert programs, conferences schedules, and a multitude of other mementos from my travels, projects, performances and of course, the musicians and the music.
