Vorarlberg's largest jazz festival in public space, curated by the two Bludenz musicians Cenk Dogan and Lukas Morre, will continue for three days after the successes of the past years. "We are glad that with the two curators we have two proven specialists in the city who are constantly coming up with interesting program items," said Stefan Kirisits, head of the cultural office.
This year the festival will take place in front of the coach house (in bad weather in the coach house) and in compliance with the COVID-19 regulations on a smaller scale, i.e. as an outdoor event with seating for a maximum of 150 visitors.
With well-known artists such as Norbert Schneider & Band, Stompin 'Howie & The Voodoo Train or the jazz orchestra Vorarlberg feat. Aja will still get his money's worth. Jazz is combined with other styles of music, thereby reaching a wide audience and making the music style accessible to newcomers to jazz.
6.30 p.m .: Stereo Ida Stereo Ida is Mona Ida (guitar, vocals), Patrick Fahser (guitar, vocals), Alex Vonach (double bass) and Marco Festini (mandolin, guitar). Stylistically founded in summer 2018, Stereo Ida shouldn't be put in a drawer: they play acoustically, unplugged and in two voices. Sometimes it's gypsy without jazz, sometimes folky, sometimes calm, soft tones and one or the other bossa is included.
8:15 p.m .: Stompin 'Howie & The Voodoo Train "Get on the train!" The train is on track and ready to go. But be careful: everyone can get in but getting out is no longer possible! Stompin 'Howie is sitting in the locomotive, driving the voodoo train at full steam in the direction of New Orleans. A pounding foot, a rolling blues piano, a roaring organ, a booming bass, a drummer who plays as if it's about his life are the ingredients with which the Voodoo Train enchants his audience. With Christof Waibel (piano, vocals), Lorenzo Wilson (bass, vocals) and Little Konzett (drums).
7.30 p.m .: Saltbewbbr
"Saltbrennt" is when a schnapps is made by hand in the Tyrolean Oberland from exquisite apples, pears and plums. "Saltbrennt" is also when a blues is distilled by hand from exquisite melodies, chords and rhythms in the Tyrolean Oberland. Driven by funk and with a note of barbershop quartet, the Tyrolean blues band "Saltbrennt" found themselves in a sound they call "self-distilled groove blues according to a traditional recipe" - somewhere between parlor blues and stadium rock, some with a funky touch, but some traditional spheres always true to the roots of the honest, only true blues.
9 p.m .: Norbert Schneider & Band
Norbert Schneider is one of the most versatile singers and musicians that Austria has to offer: his work consists of trying out and musical challenges - formerly in English, today in German in the Viennese dialect. "How it is" is the name of his new album and program, with which the three-time Amadeus Award winner is once again fully dedicated to his own musical work and celebrates the diversity of genres. The headstrong Austropop with different musical influences and the great 8-piece band ensure a unique musical experience.
7.30 p.m .: Friday Night Cadillac Club
The newly founded power formation around the musicians Bastian Berchtold (vocals, piano), Cenk Dogan (sax), Sebastian Lorenz (guitar), Stephan Reinthaler (bass) and Philipp Mayer (drums) present a broadly based program by Funk , Fusion and groovy influences. Their trademark is the fun of exploring their own (musical) limits and the energetic shared game. Five musicians who have searched and found each other and embarked on a journey into new musical spheres - this is the Friday Night Cadillac Club.
9pm: Jazz orchestra Vorarlberg feat. Aja
The Vorarlberg Jazz Orchestra presents a flagship of the Vorarlberg music scene, a voice that has an impact far beyond the national borders: Aja. The songs selected for this project run through all five previously released Aja albums. Her songs have a soulful, jazzy signature. Gospel nuances also shine through, which include A six-month collaboration with a Baptist gospel choir in New York / New Jersey. Arranger Phil Yaeger, in collaboration with the Vorarlberg Jazz Orchestra, transforms these original versions of the songs into an orchestral sound.
