The Berlin Jazz scene is constantly looking for new ways to get the music across and to spur interest in this expanding music niche that seems to be growing with each day. Here is a new festival with a pretty interesting theme: four musicians, which have chosen Berlin as their main driving force and which were all born in 1984, created a four-part festival which will start tomorrow, February 2nd.
All four concerts will be staged at the infamous A-Trane, this small, intimate, world-renowned place in the heart of Charlottenburg. First up: drummer Felix Lehrmann with his project “Marriage Material” featuring Raphael Meinhart (vibes), Arto Mäkelä (g), and Thomas Stieger (b).
Internationally known, Zurich-born vocalist Lucia Cadotsch will play part two of the festival on March 2nd. She will perform with Kit Downes (org, p), Phil Donkin (b), and James Maddren (dr). Up next, on April 6th: Regis Molina feat. Kelvin Sholar and Yomar Amdor. Alto and bari saxophonist and flutist Regis meets up with Kelvin on piano and the three bata drummers Yomar Amdor, Alexander Scull, and Angel Candeaux. The final part of this festival will take place on May 4th with the Trio Borel Borghini Lillinger with Pierre Borel on sax, Antonio Borghini on bass, and Christian Lillinger on drums.
