KUBIQUE - World Jazz Day Festival

Time loading

T I P

The Jazzkollektiv Leipzig invites two friendly collectives to organize a festival for UNESCO's World Jazz Day. The musicians from Leipzig, Cologne and Berlin want to show young people in particular what jazz can be. Free admission for everyone under 18 and tickets starting at 3 euros are intended to achieve this, as are numerous concerts at Leipzig schools on the same day.
The international Berlin-based Wabi-Sabi Orchestra, led by Austrian singer Laura Winkler, is a twelve-piece string ensemble chamber music big band. All pieces refer to the work of author Haruki Murakami, the band name to the Japanese concept of the beauty of the imperfect.
Expressway Sketches plays "Love Surf Music." Twang guitars, tons of spring reverb and the odd boom-chak-chak-chak rhythm are put through the modern-jazz wringer here. Tarantino-familiar instrumental 60s rock meets far-from-retro contemporary jazz improvisation.
Two saxophones, drums, bass: the Leipzig quartet Konglomerat interweaves music with lived stories (whatever that means). Experimental sounds here, anything but clean. After a German tour with the New York band VAX, their first album is now due - in September 2015 on the Leipzig label Resistant Mindz.
Silent Thought just played its premiere concert (on 4.2. at Horns). The (of course) brand new tracks take you into electronic soundscapes with homogeneous grooves. Progressive bands like Jaga Jazzist and Bonobo are here as well declared role models as the New York composer David Binney.
