The Enjoy Jazz Programme 2018

At the successful press conference on 27 June at the Europäischer Hof, festival director Rainer Kern announced the 2018 festival programme! This year's artists also show that the Enjoy Jazz Festival values tradition but also promotes innovation and creativity. The festival will be opened this year by the West African collective Les Amazones d'Afrique. The Beirut-based Mashrou' Leila will close the festival. There will also be a world premiere with the first live performance of Archie Shepp 's album Fire Music. Shepp will also join the festival as artist in residence for other concerts, such as his duo concert with Jason Moran. But the Enjoy Jazz anniversary programme is also great as usual: In addition to well-known Enjoy Jazz regulars such as James Farm and the award-winning Michael Wollny, who will be performing with his trio, you can look forward to the experimental sounds of Radian , or the collective The Anarchist Republic of Bzzz , which combines tradition and experimentation. Other programme highlights include the Aaron Parks Trio feat. Ben Street & Billy Hart, Avery*Sunshine, Punch Brothers as well as Josef Leimberg and many other exciting guests.
