We will give the audience the chance of a lifetime, absolutely beautiful show, where you can feel with your heart and hear the history of jazzmusic from the start when the African slaves’ drumming and work songs that led to the Blues – the basic of all Jazz.
Jazz – The Story will be a 90-minute multimedia performance of live music, narration, and historic images. A 10-piece ensemble consisting of some of the top jazz musicians on the scene today will perform musical examples of each style. Great international starmusicians are performing this show, the line up is confirmed.The band is guiding you through the history of jazz from Blues to Ragtime to Swing to Bebop to Cool. The 1950s and 60s were a particularly fertile time for jazz, with many genres emerging. There was Louis Armstrong, the most influential figures in Jazz, the Hard Bop of Miles Davis and Art Blakey; the Modal Jazz of Miles and John Coltrane; Soul Jazz, with many Hard Bop musicians adopting this style; and the Bossa Nova craze. Latin Jazz and Free or Avant-Garde Jazz, pioneered by Ornette Coleman, also developed during this period. After delving into these earlier jazz movements, the program moves on to Fusion and Post-Bop, and finally, reflects on the many different styles of jazz being played today. The band is going with you through a long travel, giving you also the opportunity to understand the history of this amazing music which has doing many steps. 1917 was recorded in New York the first album with a band from New Orleans, over 100 years we have the music covered.

Sangoma Everett Trio & special guest Enrico Rava and Grégoire Maret or Olivier Ker Ourio
Drummer Sangoma Everett recorded his new Trio with Bastien Brison Brison - piano & Christophe Lincontang - bass
Now he has decided to show case his new group with 2 amazing guest: Enrico Rava & Gregoire Maret, harmonica, or Olivier Ker Ourio, harmonica.

"This hugely popular trumpet player almost single-handedly brought Italian jazz to international attention. He began playing Dixieland trombone in Turin, but after hearing Miles Davis http://www.allmusic.com/artist/miles-davis-mn0000423829 , switched instruments and embraced the modern style. Other key meetings were with Gato Barber http://www.allmusic.com/artist/gato-barbieri-mn0000191680 , with whom he recorded movie soundtracks in 1962, and Chet Baker http://www.allmusic.com/artist/chet-baker-mn0000094210

Gregoire Maret is one of the most sought after harmonica players in the world: often compared to legends Toots Thielemans and Stevie Wonder, he has been asked to play with an incredible number of famous musicians including Youssn’Dour, Me' Shell Ndegeocello, Pete Seeger, David Sanborn, George Benson, Cassandra Wilson, to name a few. Grégoire toured with the Pat Metheny Group Pat http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Metheny_Grou , receiving a Grammy for Best Contemporary Jazz Album for their album The Way Up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Way_Up . He also won the Jazz Journalists Association ‘Player of the Year Award’.

Enrico Rava 4tet, Wild Dance
Enrico Rava, tp , flgh; Francesco Dioti, guit; Gabriele Evangelista, bass; Enrico Morello, dm

Enrico Rava, tireless as usual, no matter he’s 75, is leading a brand new quartet calling by his side three very young talents and giving life to the “RAVA NEW 4ET” project.
WILD DANCE. Enrico Rava's brand new ECM album, was out on september 2015 and it's already became a success.
Francesco Diodati belongs to the large crowd of young italian jazz musicians in rising (not only national) success.
The most peculiar aspects of his “artistic way of living music” are: strogly clear ideas and a strict desire to share his musical language with other musicians belonging to his generation.What Diodati gives to jazz music is a contemporary approach in which the sense of history and a huge auditory universe live side by side.
Electronic effects, wisely used and built on skillfully technical competence of acustic and electric guitar, reflect a new idea of music that expand “six strings” physical
research, from jazz to the rest of musical universe.

All four members compose for the group. Mario Canonge, Michel Alibo, and Jean Philippe Fanfant are masters of the traditional music of Martinique and Guadeloupe, add to that the spice of Andy Narell’s steel pans, and you have a unique blend of jazz and groove. Like their name says – ‘It’s gonna be hot!’
Sakésho recorded two albums for Heads Up International – the self titled ‘Sakésho – It’s Gonna Be Hot,’ and ‘We Want You to Say,’ and has played concerts and festivals throughout the USA, Europe, and the Caribbean.

Jasper van’t Hof – Reto Weber Duo with special guest
Musically they understand each other blind ! In conjunction with borderless instrumental mastery, breathtaking sounds and rhythms. A mix of van't Hof his meditative warmmelodyfeel in connection with heavey grooves and Weber as a big contrast with shillings income and sharp percussion instruments plus virtuoso technique. The rapid interaction's with huge contrasts give the audience to sit on one occasion a feeling of being in a carousel which high speed drastically goes out the other direction..... than to slip on a cloud through a peaceful sky.
Visuality's all over. Brainwash.
The new CD FEATURING will be out the end of this year. We have 20 musicians on our list, they have agreed to play with the Duo. It is after your choice with whom you will have the Duo
