Ballad Session presented by Pablo Held

"Ballads only" – that's the motto of this session, which is presented, moderated & led by NICA Artist Pablo Held at JAKI. At his side, the excellent rhythm section with bassist Christian Ramond and Leif Berger on drums will show us the various possibilities of interpreting ballads and invite all those who'd like to play to join in. The special thing about a session: an unrehearsed meeting of musicians, who together surrender to the moment.

With NICA artist development, a pilot project for the promotion of jazz musicians* has started in autumn 2019 at the European Centre for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Starting in January, the four artists in residence Elisabeth Coudoux, Pablo Giw, Pablo Held and Tamara Lukasheva will regularly present their musical ideas, visions, cooperations or discoveries under their names in the monthly concert series "NICA presents" at the in-house club JAKI.
