Jazz calendar #302


Why not start with Johann "Hans" Hölzel aka Falco? Many a catchy tune falls with unabashed force and haven't we been alone often enough in the past few months, immersed and plunging ourselves into whatever just demanded to be heard? We can't deny it. At home. Waiting. At home. At work. At home. Outside. Only briefly. To be home again. "Count the hours, the seconds, but time seems to stand still" - to the end!

It goes on. Different still, more cautiously than in pre-crisis times, there is no doubt about that. We can finally resume our concert operations in September and from October 15-24 the 44th Leipzig Jazz Days will take place! While the excavators were devouring the road in front of our offices, creating a touch of desert and now slowly making our paths passable again, inside - under high pressure and with growing anticipation - a new festival program has been created. The Jazz Days will open at the Kunstkraftwerk, in Leipzig's West, with the awarding of the City of Leipzig's Jazz Young Talent Prize with the support of the Marion Ermer Foundation, followed by a concert. Just as we would not want to miss an extraordinary closing night at the Opera House, we will again bring concerts to the UT Connewitz in the south of Leipzig and to the naTo. At night, a trip to one or the other church will be worthwhile. And even if dance floors are still not allowed to quake under euphoric footsteps, we will remain faithful to clubs like Werk 2. With this year's festival motto "Transitions", we would like to correspond to the spirit of the times and address transitions from various perspectives, with regional musicians and supra-regional guests. In this context, we are especially happy about cooperations with other organizers and festivals, including XJAZZ, Südtirol Jazzfestival and LeipJAZZig. You can always follow the developments of the festival program on www.jazzclub-leipzig.de/jazztage/.
