Echoes of the Jazz Age: Gold Coast

City: Surfers Paradise

04/30
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.

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!

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. The magic of Jazz ... It occurs at its best in jams ... and get the scoop .. live!

YogaLoveJazz

City: Berlin

04/30
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...

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.

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!

Faris Ishaq performing "NAY : Nature Addresses You"

04/30
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.

Jure Praper: Liquid Carpet

04/30
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
