In the basement of Café Telegraph in Leipzig's city center, in the immediate vicinity of the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Academy of Music and Theater, the market square and St. Thomas Church, has been the main venue of "Jazzclub Live" since 2010. The program there was awarded the venue program award Rock, Pop, Jazz by the German government in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018 (the only one twice in Leipzig). In addition to big names such as The Bad Plus, Aaron Goldberg or Michael Wollny, young bands made up of students from the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy University of Music and Theatre play here every Tuesday for the "HMT Stage Night".

During the Jazztage, the Telegraph has already hosted Das Kapital, Hyperactive Kid, Joe Sache and Heiner Reinhardt. In recent years, the cozy cellar has served as the closing venue, where we celebrated the finale of the Jazztage with the Tobias Hoffman Trio and Christian Kögel's "Queen Jazz", among others. This year we want to dance and close this evening with the young Cologne band SALOMEA.
