Doesn’t the time until the
next jazzahead! in April 2021 seem endless? We feel the
same way! Which is why we want to be even more in touch
with our participants, visitors and the jazz scene all
year round. On your mark, get set, go – the
new jazzahead! Blog starts today! From now
on, you can read articles and news from the jazz scene on
our blog! The texts, videos and podcasts revolve around
people, topics and regions of the international jazz
scene. For example, Peter Schulze from the artistic
direction interviews musician Pablo Held
in our very first podcast. From his own podcasts, Pablo
Held contributes the interview with Norma Winston.
And for the series “Who is zooming Who”, musicians
Nils Wogram and Glauco Venier
share their views of German jazz and current
recommendations for jazz made in Germany.
Considering the fact that corona is not the first global
crisis that the world (not only jazz) had been
confronted with, we asked experienced Italian historian
Francesco Martinelli to take a closer
look into history how especially jazz had dealt with
disasters of comparable impact and what helped him to
survive. This and much more is now available
