44. Internationales Jazzfestival Bern

Während des Internationalen Jazzfestivals Bern treten in über
200 Einzelkonzerten in dem sehr persönlichen Rahmen des
Marians Jazzroom internationale Musiker auf, die ganz offensichtlich zur Weltklasse zählen.

Musikstudenten aus der Schweiz und New York erhalten im Jazzzelt eine Plattform für erste Bühnenerfahrungen. Das Festival ist in der Schweiz fest etabliert. Es wird jährlich von mehr als 30'000 Jazzfreunden besucht.

Vom 16. - 20. April 2019 «Jane Bunnett And Maqueque»

Interview der Woche mit Jane Bunnett

1. Jane, what does Jazz mean to you?

Jazz means freedom of expression...Jazz has been a gift to me, that was founded my African Americans and generously shared ...this beautiful art form...with the world. I am very proud and honored to be part of this artistic life.

2. You're in the music business for quite a while. During this time - what has changed for you personally?

What I realize now is that it is a long journey...of discovery and creation...and that there are many times that you plateau.That things do not always move quickly...that you have to be patience...and that you must savour the beautiful moments that come up because it is sometimes a difficult road you are travelling.It is important to try to enjoy the ride and that everyone moments come up.Sometimes you feel ignored...that everyone else is getting the breaks...that you are working so hard ..and that nothing is happening in your career...which then takes you in a negative direction.
Everybody gets a chance in this music shine..and you must try to keep things in perspective.Now...I could not have imagined...even last year…that I am going to be with THE BERN JAZZ FESTIVAL...a real dream come true.
To try always to put the Music FIRST!!!!!! And good things will follow...its the law of Nature ...and you must try to take the good times with the many of our musical Heroes have rode and paved this way for us.

3. How many weeks a year are you on tour - and away from home?

Maybe 30 or 40 weeks a year with different groups but mainly with Jane Bunnett and MAQUEQUE ...the group I am performing with in BERN.

4. What is your relationship to Switzerland in general - and to Berne in particular?

I have performed various times in Switzerland and love the people and the land. But MOST importantly my partner in music and life, trumpeter Larry Cramer played with his University group, the first year we were dating...1978 at the Montreaux Jazz exciting and exotic that was ...I think it was the first year Cuban Band IRAKERE played outside of Cuba..and shocked Jazz fans with their virtuosity. Finally,more recently,our good friend Swiss pianist/composer and broadcaster Bardia Charaf produced a wonderful 1 hour show on my career for Swiss National Radio....

SEE YOU ALL IN APRIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So Excited!!!!!!!
