JazzFest.Wien 2020: First Highlights!
Jazz pianist legend Herbie Hancock has expressed himself artistically in a variety of ways throughout his long career. He wrote jazz classics such as “Watermelon Man”, “Cantaloupe Island” and “Maiden Voyage”.→
Paolo Conte, a trained lawyer and musical superstar from Piemont first only composed for other singers before becoming an entertainer himself with his trademark voice and existentialistic poetry lyrics.→
The Manhattan Transfer shaped the 1970s and 1980s with their soulful acapella style.
Simone Kopmajer’s voice is of that natural grace that is perfect for effortlessly switching between jazz and pop music.→
As an artist and musician, Bryan Ferry possesses the rare distinction of being regarded as both classic and timelessly contemporary – an accomplishment achieved by both his recordings with Roxy Music and the range and intensity of his solo albums.→
Pink Martini perfectly combine easy listening and world music in their always elegantly melancholic songs. The band aims to be romantic, sexy and inspiring.→
American pianist Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox project has become a concert hall-filling phenomenon with swing and ragtime interpretations of hits as diverse as Gloria Gaynor’s „I Will Survive“ and Rihanna’s „Umbrella“. A wonderful show!→
Beth Hart has one of the most charismatic voices of the present. Her songs tell of the dark sides of life, but there’s always a chance of happiness too.→
