Tell us a little about your organization’s mission
We are a restaurant/nightclub established in 2019 that offers good food, drinks and music. Friday nights are focused on jazz gigs (instrumental or singers); Saturday nights we have rock and blues shows. Our mission is to create a music scenery to entertain our community with fun, quality and creativity.
Why does your organization celebrate International Jazz Day?
We think that we must honor the great creators of jazz, remember its black roots and value the musicians that are still carrying on with its free musical approach, that allows us to bond with infinite musical cultures. It promotes multiculturalism and a peace culture that are essential.
Tell us about a favorite memory from International Jazz Day
As a musical director, I brought my own vision to the Gabrielle Jazz Band. As Herbie Hancock is my great musical hero and inspiration, his deep thoughts about jazz and culture have always given me the direction, and I remember how happy I was when he was nominated “jazz ambassador” and created this international event. Jazz can be a light in darker days, and we can be a small part of this light in this great worldwide party.
How do you think jazz can improve people’s lives?
Jazz can be a bridge between cultures. It is a way of thinking music, is totally free, so it establishes a common ground among others, a simple place to start a dialogue, a partnership, or a musical friendship.
