"Flamingos and Other Birds of Paradise - 40 Years of the Leipzig Jazz Days".

On 368 pages, numerous stories about the Leipzig Jazz Days come to life, from personal memories and anecdotes to questions such as: What role(s) did the Jazztage play in the cultural landscape of the city of Leipzig? How was the festival able to continue and reposition itself with the political and economic changes from 1991 onwards? And how does the festival stand today? The texts as well as the numerous photos and illustrations of posters, programs and much more have never been published before. Thus, for the first time, a kaleidoscope of the most important jazz festival in the new German states is created, which was an international meeting place even before 1989 and which today reaches a younger audience like hardly any other jazz festival in Germany.
With text contributions by Ketil Bjørnstad, Wolfram Dix, Stefan Heilig, Wolf Kampmann, Andreas Kolb, Peter Korfmacher, Joachim Kühn, Rolf Kühn, Dr. Heinz-Jürgen Lindner, Dr. Bert Noglik, Detlef A. Ott, Steffen Pohle, Friedemann Richter, Samuel Rohrer, Helmut 'Joe' Sachse, Friedhelm Schönfeld, Gerhard Schulz, Dr. Oliver Schwerdt, Michael Sell, Günter 'Baby' Sommer, Dr. Ulrich Steinmetzger, Erika Stucky, Nils Wogram and many more, as well as photos by Matthias Hildebrand, Susann Jehnichen, Andreas Liebich, Steffen Pohle, Arne Reimer, Falk Wenzel and others.
Admission is not charged.
