Jazzaar 2014 Press Release

Jazzaar Festival 2014 – Press Release

Jazzaar Festival has the pleasure of presenting 2 fantastic programmes this April 2014 on this 22nd Edition of Bandstand Learning with Role Models. The youth will once again collaborate with master musicians as their peers on the bandstand. Together they will rehearse daily for a whole week starting on April 7 in the Kultur & Kongresshaus Aarau (KUK). There will also be special workshops twice daily and a jam session at a nearby restaurant on April 9 for the youth and public to jam with the professionals! Final performances are held mostly at the KUK at the end of the week with an additional performance in the Würthhaus in Rorschach, SG.

The production Bona Bonanza will feature none other than the acclaimed Jazz/Funk/World-Music Maestro from Cameroon, Richard Bona with his trio in teamwork with the renowned European chamber artists, Chaarts. With these giants of various music genres meeting to merge, the Swiss Youth Chamber Orchestra in their midst will have a time of their life tapping into a variety of rich ores of musical genius for triggering nuggets of creative impulses that week and for years to come. The music presented is a collection of haunting, catchy and intriguing songs from Richard Bona’s past and recent albums, specially arranged for this formation by Gil Goldstein, a multi Grammy winner that also won the 2014 Grammy awards for ‘Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist’. Bona’s trio features Etienne Stadwijk on keyboards (Suriname) and Ludwig Afonso (Cuba) on drums. The Chaarts will comprise of top strings and woodwinds players led by Andreas Fleck (Germany) of ‘Das Künstlerhaus Boswil’.

Bona Bonanza will play 2 performances, one in the Kultur & KongresshausAarau (KUK) on Friday, April 11 at 20:00h and another in the Würthhaus in Rorschach by the lake of Bodensee, in the canton Saint Gallen on Saturday, April 12 likewise at 20:00h.

Future Steps, a production inspired by the jazz fusion group of the 1980s called Steps Ahead will have the honour of having Steps’ brainchild, vibraphonist Mike Mainieri (USA) on board. Besides Mike, other Steps members to commit to this alliance are the drummer Rodney Holmes (USA) and trumpeter Randy Brecker (USA) – 2014 Grammy winner for ‘Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album’. The Swiss Youth Jazz Orchestra once again will take the journey forwards also accompanied by jazz greats such as Ryan Quigley (Scotland) on lead trumpet, Markus Hauser (CH) on tenor sax, Christian Kramer (DE) on trombone, Christian Jacob (USA) on piano and Alphonso Johnson (USA) on bass. The orchestra will be led by Fritz Renold, Jazzaar’s musical director, who also contributes to the Future Steps with original compositions that compliment Mike Mainieri’s master pieces from Steps Ahead.

Future Steps will premier at the Kultur & Kongresshaus Aarau (KUK) on Saturday, April 12 at 20:00h.

With these two productions Jazzaar Festival once again invites youth and audience to discover, enjoy and share in the pleasure of making music that is uplifting, romantic and intellectual all at the same time!
