Exclusively as part of XJAZZ Festival, there will be a unique opportunity to see the shows of two giants of jazz with just one pass. Both Monika Roscher’s concert with the Berlin JugendJazzOrchester and the performance of the JBBG are included in the price of a single ticket.
As a conceptual indie big band, Echo Jazz winner Monika Roscher and the Berlin JugendJazzOrchester will redefine the boundaries of jazz. With their open, innovative playing which in places is reminiscent of danceable electronics, bold indie or mesmerizing trip hop, the formation has already received acclaimed reviews that have completely convinced even the American jazz institution DownBeat.
Afterwards the Jazz Big Band Graz, JBBG for short, will bring the Festsaal to boiling point. Under the direction of trumpeter and singer Horst-Michael Schaffer and saxophonist Heinrich von Kalnein, the group has positioned itself in recent years as one of the leading voices within the European orchestral landscape. The diverse incomparable sound is characterized by selective electronic influences as well as minimalist and African currents. With some of the best musicians and soloists of the German-speaking region, a contemporary orchestral approach to jazz is realized, always open to fresh and catchy grooves.
