Here it goes: an appeal and exclamation mark set up JAZZAHEAD, this new type of festival and congress, took place the first time last week in Bremen, Germany.
The global jazz circle has found an ambitious forum in times of change and will, that's the tenor everywhere, push the varied German scene.
JAZZMEDIA was there and build up new contacts and let old ones come to life again. Beside the very informative contributions in the conference sector round about sponsoring, copyrights for musicians, programme structures of festivals and much more, 14 German bands are presenting a concentrate of their music in 3 tracks each group and they saw an interested and expectant audience.
At the evenings concerts of international successful stars are performing: in this connection the BOBO STENSON TRIO convinced decisively with instinctive sureness in the interplay between the musicians, carried in maximum enthusiasm. The young Swedish Jon Fält was a revelation! He played his drum with so much passion and fresh courage, that listeners took away to unreal spheres. This is what great jazz is all about: journeys to experience, that burns into collective minds unforgettably.
It is desirable for the whole JAZZAHEAD festival in the following years.
