Stream: Winterjazz in Space

Neue Webisoden Serie vom 7. – 12. Januar 2022

The 11th edition of the "Winterjazz Köln" festival, which was to take place from 7 to 8 January 2022 in cooperation with the artist development programme NICA artist development in the Stadtgarten Cologne, unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the current Corona situation. Since then, we have been working flat out to make the music of the programme audible to the public in all its freshness and exploratory spirit despite the circumstances. This resulted in the new webisode series "Winterjazz in Space", which will feature a total of 6 broadcasts of 3 bands each from 7 to 12 January 2022 on and the Stadtgarten's Facebook channels.

All details are subject to change. Short-term program changes are possible.

Matthew Halpin - Frown Town
After the successful release of his debut album "Agreements", Matthew Halpin (living in Cologne and Ireland) continues his journey as a composer and bandleader, this time with a new band of long-time friends and colleagues. The musical charac-ters of this band are mixed and each of them has the flexibility to change direction and enter new territories - with powerful grooves and melodies.

Elisabeth Coudoux - violoncello solo
For Elisabeth Coudoux, exploring the spectrum of sounds on the cello is an ever-expanding search for the inner voice. Piece by piece, learned norms are dismantled, layer by layer Coudoux arrives at an inner language that is not formed with the mouth, but in the interplay of ear, hands and intuition. She understands her instrument as an orchestral body of sound, whose weights are constantly shifting between individual expression and free collective energy.

The quartet around the terrific Cologne bassist Oliver Lutz promises "a little more of everything": more joy of playing, more energy, more passion. The band includes Pablo Held, one of Europe's most successful jazz pianists - he inspires as a sideman with a never-ending spiral of new thoughts and motifs. Also part of the band are the award-winning saxophone virtuoso Wanja Slavin and Andi Haberl, who appears as the drummer of "The Notwist", among others, and enriches the music with his versatile and furious drumming. Together these four outstanding musicians release an incomparable power.
