October jazz calendar jazz calendar

From the editorial of Jazzkalender number 256, which as always is available in full here '''
Do you know this? You go to the attic and at first you don't see through at all, between all the stuff from the past. Finally you open an old suitcase, rummage around in it a bit, discover this and that, forget the time and everything around you. And suddenly you realize that you are flying around with the suitcase and that a jazz band is playing! And then, to top it all off, you've fallen in love with the princess!
Shortly before we finish the new jazz calendar, LU:V and the GewandhausKinderchor set the film "The Suitcase" to music live in a pre-concert of the 39th Leipzig Jazz Days. The audience follows the moving images and the moving music - and the anticipation for 10 days of "Cinematic Jazz" rises and rises. Live soundtracks, film music jazz, concerts with live visuals and head cinema concerts: it's going to be a feast!
Michael Wollny and Eric Schaefer will set the creepy classic "Nosferatu" to music with Norway's oldest ensemble, French double bassist Renaud García-Fons will perform the fairy-tale "Adventures of Prince Achmed," and saxophonist Basti Wehle will perform two animated films by Schwarwel. Maciej Fortuna returns to the Jazztage stage with a Krzysztof Penderecki project. Philipp Rohmer reworks Ennio Morricone pieces, and the New York quartet Sex Mob combines James Bond melodies with Nino Rota's music for Fellini films like "8 1/2." The great Nils Petter Molvær brings visual artist Tord Knudsen to the Schauspielhaus, and Johanna Borchert and Omer Klein also perform with band and live images. The artists' collective shortfilmlivemusic deals with guest work and migration in the GDR in its film concert. Klima Kallima takes Aki Kaurismaeki into rock jazz. Great cinema at the Leipzig Jazz Days!

Reaching into your inner popcorn bag: your Jazzkalender editors.
PS: We didn't invite Brad Mehldau to the cinema, but to a solo concert in the Thomaskirche. Because you only live to be 1000 once and we don't get together that young anymore!
PPS: After the Jazz Days there will be no breathing space - in Jazzclub Live we present Melanoia, i.e. Dejan Terzic, Haryden Chisholm, Ronny Graupe and the freshly minted Mangelsdorff Prize winner Achim Kaufmann.
