Jam Session - Carl Zinsius Project

Free admission

Every Tuesday: Jam Session at the Jazz-Schmiede. As always, opened by an opener set, followed by an open session - anyone can come and join in.

Opener: A Tribute to Carla Bley The artist, who died in October 2023, was certainly one of the most important, if not the most important jazz composer of our time. Bley wrote pieces for the pianist & her first husband Paul Bley as early as the 1960s and thus became part of the avant-garde jazz movement. As conductor & arranger for Charlie Haden's "Liberation Music Orchestra", composer of the jazz opera "Escalator Over The Hill", founder of her own label and leading woman in a male domain, Bley has always been an unrivalled role model. The four young musicians present Bley's pieces anew with a lot of joy of playing and room for improvisation. Strange, intimate and humorous compositions meet beautiful, simple yet surprising melodies and give an insight into the work of this unique composer.
