April 16, 2016 in KUK Aarau
The Swiss Youth Jazz Orchestra (SYJO) will be directed by Fritz K Renold, who is also the musical director of Jazzaar Festival accompanied by featured guests such as Frank Greene (Ltp), Marques Young (tb), Tony Lakatos (ts), Oli Rockberger (voc, keys), Neil Jason (b) and Billy Cobham (d). These international artistes are chosen as mentors and masters for the youth orchestra for their versatility in Jazz and Soul music and their experience in other fusion influences. Together they will explore a combination of standards and original music to present a night of authentic Soul music. The work highlighting a variety of spectrums of that style by composers and prolific arrangers will fill a 2-set performance (45 min per set with 20-min break between sets) to entertain a capacity audience.
The Soul Night at Jazzaar will also feature some vocals by Oli Rockberger, Neil Jason and Sharon Renold.
For the mentors and the SYJO it would be a mutually enriching experience as they work together during rehearsals, jam sessions and workshops in mastering the performance during the Jazzaar week.
