Flashback #3

The "Far East Suite" is a musical milestone that would be inconceivable without the encounters between people from East and West. Thus it is also a plea for an open approach to other cultures, for tolerance and humanism.

In the midst of the Cold War, African-American Congressman Adam Clayton Powell Jr. launched the Jazz Ambassadors program, which sent jazz musicians all over the world as cultural ambassadors, including such greats as Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Benny Goodman, and indeed: Duke Ellington. He toured Japan, China, India, Pakistan, Iran, Syria and Egypt in 1963 and processed his musical and cultural travel experiences in the "Far East Suite", which he wrote with Billy Strayhorn (who would have turned 100 at the end of November). This last classic album the two collaborated on was recorded exactly 50 years ago and won a Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance. The "Far East Suite" is a musical milestone that would be inconceivable without the encounters of people from East and West. As such, it is also a plea for an open approach to other cultures, for tolerance and humanism.
The Jazzclub Leipzig, UT Connewitz, HMT Leipzig, Neue Musik Leipzig, Pianofortefabrik Blüthner, RumseiRec, der Kreuzer and Gangart are jointly presenting this Flashback concert, at which refugees have free admission.
