Band created in Brussels, the “Amicale of New Orleans” swings without restraint through this hundred-year-old inheritance. Far from the surges of free and more technical styles that jazz will develop later, the New Orleans style is dancing and accessible. Sometimes fervent, sometimes romantic, it is this diversity and this energy that enthuses the group. Song, humor and interactions with the public are also an integral part of this universe which they play brilliantly.

France Elina Duni + Arthur Henry (Carte blanche Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation)

La chanteuse Elina Duni présente “Partir”, album chanté en neuf langues dans lequel elle s’accompagne à la guitare, au piano et aux percussions. Elle y traverse les abîmes de la douleur, avant de déboucher sur « l’ultime refuge » qu’est la joie.
Fleuron de la scène beatbox, Arthur Henry produit un électro-hip hop percutant, duquel s’échappent des notes délicates. Enregistrant son chant dans une loopstation, il superpose des couches de sons instrumentaux, et notamment de cor des Alpes.

###

The singer Elina Duni presents “Partir,” an album sung in nine languages ​​in which she accompanies herself on guitar, piano and percussion. It crosses the abyss of pain, before coming to “the ultimate refuge” that is joy.

The epitome of the beatbox scene, Arthur Henry produces a percussive electro-hip hop, from which delicate notes escape. Recording his song in a loopstation, he superimposes layers of instrumental sounds, including Alpine horn.

La harpiste Julia Campiche s’entoure de Leo Fumagalli au saxophone, Manu Hagmann à la contrebasse et Clemens Kuratle à la batterie. Teintées d’une étrange mélancolie, leurs mélodies évoquent une génération baignée dans le flux médiatique et les déchets radioactifs.
Schnellertollermeier : Andi Schnellmann (basse), Manuel Troller (guitare) et David Meier (batterie), délivrent une psyché-expérimentale sans compromis. Le groupe oscille entre minimale et rock brut, dans des nuances arachnéennes.

France Jazzaudehore : Men in Bop

Olivier Defays & Philippe Chagne (saxophones ténor), Philippe Petit (orgue Hammond) & Yves Nahon (batterie)

Quoi de plus beau qu’un son de saxophone ténor ? Deux sons de saxophones ténors (!) qui dialoguent, s’interpellent en joutes amicales ou sonnent en chœur… et cette formule a inspiré de nombreux grands saxophonistes au cours de l’histoire du jazz.
L’esthétique de Men In Bop est bien ancrée dans la tradition du jazz des années 50/60, un jazz qui privilégie le « groove » et une virtuosité

###

Olivier Defays & Philippe Chagne (tenor saxophones), Philippe Petit (Hammond organ) & Yves Nahon (drums)

What is more beautiful than the sound of a tenor saxophone? Two tenor saxophones (!) which converse, challenge each other to friendly jousts or play in chorus…this formula has inspired numerous great saxophonists over the course of jazz history.
The aesthetic of “Men in Bop” is anchored in the jazz tradition of the 50’s and 60’s–jazz that favors the virtuosity and “the groove.”

SOG – innovative Musik feiert der Welttag des Jazz -wie gewohnt mit einem ganz persönlichen Blick auf dem Genre. Obwohl ihre Ursprünge irgendwo im Jazz und Punk zu verorten sind, hat sich die Musik des Trios Kurws längst in experimentellere Bereiche bewegt. Die 2008 gegründete Breslauer Band, dekonstruiert mittels Gitarre, Schlagzeug und Bass vertraute Motive und liebgewonnene Hörgewohnheiten zu Geräuschen und Emotionen, um diese schließlich zu rauen, hypnotisierenden Gefügen zu verschmelzen.

The Breslauer Band, founded in 2008, deconstructed by means of guitar, drums and bass familiar motives and cherished listening habits to sounds and emotions, to finally merge these into rough, hypnotizing structures.

Giornata internazionale Jazz 2018
Il Circolo delle Quinte
Il Linguaggio Universale del Jazz

29 Aprile Auditorium RAI Palermo – ore 18.00

Gli artisti narrano il proprio vissuto e la propria personalità attraverso forme artistiche e culturali come:
Teatro, utilizzando combinazioni variabili di parola, suono, gestualità, musica, danza e vocalità;
Musica, con l’improvvisazione e la sorpresa, elementi senza i quali nessun concetto melodico-armonico potrebbe essere definito Jazz;
Yoga, l’ascolto e il contatto profondo con la nostra essenza. L’espressione esteriore del sentire interiore. La trasmissione di qualcosa di autentico che rivela la nostra vera natura.
La concretizzazione di un’esperienza in cui si vuole condividere con il pubblico la libertà dello spirito e del pensiero, alla ricerca della propria vera natura; un ritorno a quello che siamo sempre stati.

Introduzione:
da Colombo a New Orleans

La Swing Era in Italia

Kyrgyzstan Not Black and White: Lost Recordings … In Gratitude to Louis Armstrong

“Not Black and White: Lost Recordings … In Gratitude to Louis Armstrong” is a jazz-musical, written and performed by Clyde R. Forsberg Jr., now a professor of history and cultural studies at the American University of Central Asia (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan). The play was first performed in Canada. His personal story of growing up in an abusive, patriarchal, racist home underscores the idea of jazz as deliverance. The Central Asian production will add to this ethno-jazz and transnational elements.
