To celebrate their anniversary, the colleagues of LeipJAZZig are treating themselves to five festival days: first three big evenings with big lineups at UT Connewitz, and finally two double concerts at Plan B.
The Leipzig Big Band with its guest singer Pascal von Wrobllewsky will kick off the festival. The big band, founded in 1999 by David Timm and Frank Nowicky, will present arrangements written especially for the festival (March 17).
As at the 15th LeipJAZZig Festival, the LeipJAZZig Orchestra led by Stephan König will meet Thomas Morgenstern, considered by many to be one of Germany's leading accordion players in tango, jazz and world music (March 18).
Then, on the third day of the festival, Swiss clarinetist Claudio Puntin and the Spielvereinigung Sued want to "move mountains." Folk music and texts by Lucerne lyricist Sabina Naef flow here into creative contemporary sounds (19.3.).
On the fourth day of the festival, the move to Plan B takes place: the piano trio around Johannes Bigge plays sophisticated, profound "new jazz from Leipzig", Nypon Syskon & Erik Leuthäuser present their very personal arrangements of traditional German melodies (20.3.).
Jörg Leistner's quartet Four Steps has a similar approach, opening the last evening before the Jazzwerkstatt Leipzig, newly assembled by Michael Breitenbach, concludes the 20th LeipJAZZig Festival by improvising freely and conceptually (21.3.).
