Brazilian rhythms and melodies meet jazz harmony and improvisation in the ‘Dani & Debora Gurgel Quartet’. Their sound is an inseparable union between instrumental music and carefully written lyrics, utilizing Dani’s voice as a woodwind instrument in a jazz ambience of improvisation, stitched along the grooves of Brazilian popular music. Their original compositions are accompanied by several daring arrangements of carefully selected songs from the Brazilian, jazz and pop repertoire. This family-style Quartet has its roots in the musical mother-daughter relationship of Debora and Dani, which started when Dani was a three-year-old music pupil. But it wasn’t until drummer and producer Thiago Rabello came along that the Quartet’s current sound got its shape. The Quartet records ‘live’ in studio: the 4 of them interacting and having fun together. The Quartet’s recent album ‘Garra’ featuring guitar player Romero Lubambo brings mostly Dani & Debora’s own compositions, all written after returning from a tour of Japan. The remainder is made up of by select covers of the music of Sting, Toninho Horta, Brad Mehldau, and Elis Regina.

The phrase ‘jam session’ came about in the 1920s, when white and black musicians would congregate in smoky bars after their regular paying gigs to play the jazz they couldn't in the ‘Paul Whiteman’ style bands. Bing Crosby would often attend these sessions. Musicians would say he was ‘jammin' the beat’, as he clapped on the first and the third beat, rather than the second and the fourth. Now, in the 21th century, DJAZZ takes this ‘jamming’ into a whole new dimension with Seine Sessions. The cr

What happens if you ask a jazz artist to just sit down and play in front of a camera, without any further ado? Some of the greatest jazz musicians in any style - from blues and boogie-woogie to bebop and beyond - rise to the challenge, in these intimate and exciting jazz solo sessions. In today’s broadcast, Ethan Iverson plays his own post-modern piano jazz. Iverson, best known as the bald pianist with the black moustache of the Minneapolitan trio The Bad Plus, is always at the frontier of music – not just in the notoriously humorous titles he assigns the group’s compositions. Apart from his work with old hands such as Lee Konitz and Albert "Tootie" Heath, Iverson regularly shifts his focus from the rock jazz idiom of The Bad Plus to the classics. The man who performed with Yo Yo Ma has tried his hand, successfully, at his own adaptation of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. Iverson has taken on the challenge to play a SOLO session, in which he gets the chance to show his considerable chops as solo pianist.

The Dutch Hammond organ player Rob Mostert develops, in cooperation with DJAZZ, the programme ‘Mostert Meets’. In this series, the Hammond B3 organ takes centre stage. Rob Mostert invites the world’s finest jazz musicians for a musical collaboration, in which the Hammond Organ plays a major role. The Hammond B3 is an electric organ, which generates sound by creating an electric current from rotating a metal tonewheel near an electromagnetic pickup. Initially, the Hammond B3 was at home in churches, until it entered the jazz scene in the mid-20th century. In this episode, Mostert performs with his band ‘The Preacher Men’, consisting of saxophonist Efraim Trujillo, drummer Chris Strik, and of course Hammon organist Rob Mostert himself!

The guitar virtuoso, himself a fan of fellow guitarist Bill Frisell, is known for his trio and quartet work, plays on custom-made 7- and 8-string-guitars. These instruments allow him to freely play bass lines, rhythm guitar, and solos all at once. Combined with the deep well of ideas from which he draws, this informal solo set does not feel "solo" at all.

Three generations of listeners have been turned on to the music of mystic singer/ songwriter Terry Callier. During the 1960s, concerts in New York, made him a leading figure in the early folk boom. In the 1970s, recordings crystallised his style- a unique brand of soul, folk, jazz and a deeply moving poetry. It gained him an impassioned following among R&B hipsters and reinforced his reputation as a vocal legend. Following a series of disillusioning experiences amid the disco-craze in the early 1980s, Callier took his leave from the music business. For 15 years, Terry Callier led his life unnoticed. In the mid 1990s, the blossoming Clubs in Britain are looking for outstanding musical inspirations. London based DJ Gilles Peterson happens to find a single that blows his mind and that is soon to reach cult status in the clubs. The man who has written music history in the 1960s and 1970s, returns to the stage after a 15 year break, literally talked into a comeback by an audience that had kept on asking for his music. "Terry Callier - Live in Concert" covers the unique work of this legendary singer/songwriter.

This 1998 recording features the late French pianist Michel Petrucciani and his trio of drummer Steve Gadd and bassist Anthony Jackson in performance in Stuttgart. The musicians might seem an unlikely team. Petrucciani (who died in January 1999) was an unabashed romantic in the lyrical piano tradition that extends from Duke Ellington through Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, while Gadd and Jackson are best known as masters of the contemporary studio groove. Yet they achieve an organic sense of swing, even if Jackson's bass guitar lacks the rich wooden timbre of an acoustic instrument.

The mere mention of the name John Coltrane evokes a deeply emotional, often spiritual response from even the most casual jazz fan. Dexter Gordon was a fantastic saxophonist. Miles Davis was a genius. Coltrane stood above - he was a visionary, a saint-like figure. By the standards of most jazz musicians, his life was uneventful. Sure, he had a heroin habit for a while, and Miles Davis punched him, but once he'd experienced the "spiritual awakening" described in the liner notes of his 1965 album A Love Supreme, he dedicated himself to his music with extreme single-mindedness. This broadcast of Coltrane's 1965 performance at the short-lived Belgian jazz festival in Comblain-la-Tour features Trane's classic quartet with Elvin Jones (drums), Jimmy Garrison (bass) and McCoy Tyner (piano).

During every late July since 1998, the French Gironde swings to the rhythms of reggae when the Reggae Sun Ska Festival takes place near Bordeaux. The ever-growing festival contributes to the fact that the reggae genre, which has roots in Jamaica, has become inseparable from the popular music of today. Reggae has roots in ska and rocksteady, two music genres that in turn derive from soul and rhythm-and-blues. The bass and drum provide ‘riddim’, the typical drum and bass accent that’s such an instantly recognizable element of reggae music. Reggae is closely related to the Rastafari belief of Jamaica. Each year, the French festival presents the biggest names in reggae - and DJAZZ brings the special rhythms of reggae to your living room!

Grammy Award winning trumpeter and composer Roy Hargrove has established himself a solid reputation as one of the most versatile and hardest working players in jazz. In this Montréal International Jazz Festival performance, Hargrove’s magical trumpet stylings seep into the night and captivate the audience with velvety smooth cadence. A combination of Cuban rhythms, jazz, groove and funk are skillfully exuded from the musician whose technique is magical. This performance, though mainly focused on Hargrove’s trumpet playing, also lends itself to compelling and dynamic solos from an excellent pool of musicians.

This might come unexpected, but the Brussels Jazz Orchestra (BJO) is not the kind of jazz orchestra that sticks to standards. They prefer to achieve the highest level by composing original music, creating unique arrangements, and playing inventively as well as passionately. In fact, it really is jazz with a dynamic orchestral sound, with a classic strength in which each musician is also a brilliant soloist. Call it an ‘orchestrated passion for jazz’ that incites BJO to create world-class music. Founded in 1993 by Frank Vaganée, Serge Plume and Marc Godfroid, the Brussels Jazz Orchestra is recognised and has been subsidised by the Flemish Government since. Brussels Jazz Orchestra is orchestra in residence at Flagey in Brussels. During this project the BJO performs with David Linx. The Belgian jazz singer will resort to any idiom, any language, any time signature. Occasionally he seems to dispense with bar lines altogether, or he will go beyond lyrics, as he abandons his own words for some free-wheeling scat.

The November Music festival in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands is the ultimate event for experiencing a broad range of music. It features a wonderful variety of contemporary and experimental pop, sound art, non-Western music, jazz and free improvisation. The closing concert for the 2016 edition offers a great example of this musical wealth - Dutch composer and pianist Rembrandt Frerichs’ fantastic trio play a wonderful set with Cello8ctet Amsterdam and renowned Iranian tar player Hossein Alizâdeh. Rembrandt Frerichs studied in New York and lived in Cairo for several years. His music has the drive of American jazz, the lyricism of Middle-Eastern music, and the sensitivity of the chamber music of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. The combination of Frerichs’ trio with Cello8ctet and Alizâdeh is unique. Their music is a miracle of organic creativity, and a shining fusion of old and new world music.

The Dutch world-class jazz pianist Peter Beets has shared the stage with jazz greats like Chick Corea, Wynton Marsalis, "Toots" Thielemans, Elvin Jones, George Coleman, Johnny Griffin, Benny Golson and John Clayton. From birth, Beets was surrounded by music: he heard classical music from his mother, who is a music pedagogue, and he heard jazz from his father, who has a great fan of Oscar Peterson and Art Blakey. Although Beets’ parents originally did not associate the word "musician" with the word "career", music is definitely in the family’s blood. At this concert at the Kurhaus in Scheveningen, the Netherlands, Peter Beets teams up with the world-famous guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. With a career spanning almost twenty-five years and including collaborating with dynamic peers like Brad Mehldau, Brian Blade, Mark Turner, Joshua Redman, Chris Potter, as well as esteemed jazz legends like Joe Henderson, Paul Motian and Gary Burton, Rosenwinkel’s indelible mark in music is the consummation of being steeped in the rich and deep traditions of jazz, springing off of the shoulders of such vital underpinnings to elevate his own art to new heights, evolving the language in a way no other guitarist has since his arrival. This collaboration between Beets and Rosenwinkel guarantees brilliant music.

With the exception of DJAZZ.tv, there is hardly any jazz on television. Jazz pianist and broadcaster Ramsey Lewis has addressed this vacuum with his programme series ‘Legends of Jazz’. This interesting series brings together musicians who are not usually paired. Almost more than any other instrument, the tenor seems to be able to encompass all infinite shades of jazz. Veteran sax man Benny Golson (who has performed with Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie and Art Blakey); and Chris Potter, the fiery young horn player who has performed with everyone from the Mingus Big Band to Steely Dan; as well as rising young star Marcus Strickland play individually and together and talk about their lives in music and influences such as Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Sonny Rollins, Coltrane and Stan Getz. The legendary Benny Golson's tenor saxophone performance demonstrates that he is quite at home playing with the young lions. Chris Potter, the ever dependable innovator, and the surprisingly fresh Marcus Strickland gave us performances to remind us that jazz continues to be in good hands.

Olivier Manoury, born in Tulle (France), started his career as a maker of musical instruments. His love for musical instruments grows even larger when he discovers the bandoneon. Manoury masters the instrument, both as a musician and as a maker. Manoury, who refers to Astor Piazzolla and Miles Davis as his main sources of inspiration, starts to focus more and more on playing the instrument; and from 1979 onwards he abandons the manufacturing of instruments altogether. In his Quartet, Manoury surrounds himself with musicians from the warmer parts of the Americas. In 2007, the bandoneonist performed at the New Morning in Paris alongside his fully electric Quartet. His group consists of the Cuban drummer Lukmil Perez, the Brazilian bassist Ruben Santana, and the Brazilian-Irish pianist Leonardo Montana.

Since then, many jazz and blues giants have made their appearance on the stage, with Chet Baker, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon and Kenny Clarke among them. Tonight’s concert features Al Foster. Foster, master drummer, has been a major innovator in the world of jazz for several decades. As a member of the Miles Davis band for thirteen years, Foster's influence on Davis' music is great. Respected and admired for his keen sensitivity, Foster is known for his unique ability to listen to and playoff others in an almost telepathic way, responding to them with a style that is at once both charismatic and understated. He is a magnificent all-round drummer, and his rhythmic chops are renowned in musical styles ranging from bebop to free form to jazz/rock. This performance in the New Morning Club is great example of Foster’s all-round qualities.

"Le Freak, c'est chic". Words that are enough to fill up a dance floor. By the time Chic appeared in the late '70s, disco was already slipping into the excess that eventually caused its downfall. Chic bucked the trend by stripping disco's sound down to its basic elements. The band’s sound was anchored by the scratchy, James Brown-style rhythm guitar of Nile Rodgers and the indelible bass lines of Bernard Edwards. As producers, they used keyboard and string embellishments economically, which kept the emphasis on rhythm. There can be little argument that Chic was disco's greatest band – their funky grooves, stylish detailing and overall sense of rhythm and simplicity in a time of campy excess made many of their songs memorable as well as danceable. During this show recorded at one of Europe’s top venues, Paradiso Amsterdam, the members of Chic play their all-time classics!

During every late July since 1998, the French Gironde swings to the rhythms of reggae when the Reggae Sun Ska Festival takes place near Bordeaux. The ever-growing festival contributes to the fact that the reggae genre, which has roots in Jamaica, has become inseparable from the popular music of today. Reggae has roots in ska and rocksteady, two music genres that in turn derive from soul and rhythm-and-blues. The bass and drum provide ‘riddim’, the typical drum and bass accent that’s such an instantly recognizable element of reggae music. Reggae is closely related to the Rastafari belief of Jamaica. Each year, the French festival presents the biggest names in reggae - and DJAZZ brings the special rhythms of reggae to your living room!

The series offers an eye-witness account of the incredible inventiveness and diversity of New York City’s jazz scene. The German-born vocalist Theo Bleckmann has made his name in the United States traversing the fields of jazz, cabaret and contemporary classical music. His work has been described as ‘from another planet’, ’futuristic’ and ‘limitless’. This recorded gig at Joe’s Pub on Lafayette Street is irrefutable proof for these statements.

To call Omar Sosa an Afro-Cuban jazz pianist would only capture part of his true style. Because while he has always kept one foot firmly within the traditions of his native isle, this citizen of the world also shows an insatiable curiosity, tirelessly exploring music from around the world: from the Caribbean to India and from West Africa to the Arab World. Nothing seems to escape his thirst for discovery. This breadth of experience and sense of openness is clearly reflected in the music the quartet plays. A celebration of rhythm in all its forms - he began his musical life as a percussionist - an Omar Sosa concert always gives the audience an intense, some would say mystical, experience.

During every late July since 1998, the French Gironde swings to the rhythms of reggae when the Reggae Sun Ska Festival takes place near Bordeaux. The ever-growing festival contributes to the fact that the reggae genre, which has roots in Jamaica, has become inseparable from the popular music of today. Reggae has roots in ska and rocksteady, two music genres that in turn derive from soul and rhythm-and-blues. The bass and drum provide ‘riddim’, the typical drum and bass accent that’s such an instantly recognizable element of reggae music. Reggae is closely related to the Rastafari belief of Jamaica. Each year, the French festival presents the biggest names in reggae - and DJAZZ brings the special rhythms of reggae to your living room! In this episode, DJAZZ broadcasts a concert of the French reggae band Mystical Faya, winner of the ‘Découverte 2013 Zion Garden’ Award.

With the exception of DJAZZ.tv, there is hardly any jazz on television. Jazz pianist and broadcaster Ramsey Lewis has addressed this vacuum with his programme series ‘Legends of Jazz’. This interesting series brings together musicians who are not usually paired. This episode we’ll see performances of the two great guitar players Pat Metheny and Jim Hall. Pat Metheny (1954) has been one of the most unique forces in jazz guitar for more than 20 years. His music - with its blend of jazz, rock, folk and electronic elements - is highly original and enormously popular, allowing him to sell out arena venues. He appears in this episode with NEA Jazz Master Jim Hall (1930-2013), a musician of understated elegance who is considered one of the greatest jazz guitarists. Although the wonderful contemporary guitarist Pat Metheny says he has always looked up to Jim Hall, you will witness this episode as simply a musical love affair between two great artists.

Take one look at Michel Legrand's extraordinary career, and you start asking yourself the question: ‘what have you been doing the rest of your life’? The French composer, songwriter, pianist, born in 1932, has not only produced around 140 film scores, won three Oscars (out of eleven nominations), worked with Miles Davis, composed songs like ‘What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life’, ‘The Windmills of Your Mind’ and ‘The Summer Knows’ – every one of which trigger the stuck song syndrome in the listener –, he has also recently written his autobiography, and taken on a major touring project. In this broadcast, Legrand performs a concert with opera singer Natalie Dessay. Dessay, taking a 'sabbatical' from opera, is probably the most complete and adaptable French singing actress of her generation. These two icons of French music are playing this very special concert at the Orangerie of the Château de Versailles!

Regarded as the greatest instrumental soloist of all-time, Stanley Gayetzky, famously known as Stan Getz emerged as one of the most significant musical forces in the world of jazz post World War II. With his distinctively warm and lyrical tone, Getz is fondly dubbed as ‘The Sound’ because of his singularity and musical innovations. His commitment to music is evident from his long body of work that includes over 300 pieces of musical compositions. Ranked among America’s top tenor saxophone players, Getz was a gifted saxophonist who could play just about anything on it, a quality that put him on top of the polls. He is accredited for playing some of the best jazz with some of the best jazzmen in the country. However, his personal life was a rollercoaster ride — tumultuous and loused up by abjection, alcohol, addiction and furious flare-ups.

There are some artists who, even at 70, keep exploring. Joachim Kühn has always been an adventurer. Having left his native GDR in 1966, he’s lived in West Germany, France, California and Ibiza. During his musical journey we have seen him with greats like Ornette Coleman, one of the main influences on which Joachim has built his own distinctive style. Drawing on both the classical European tradition and the freedom of jazz form, this great pianist has also been absorbing Eastern influences. His trio is completed by Ramón López on drums, and the Moroccan multi-instrumentalist Majid Bekkas, who infuses the show with the trance-like reverie of the gnawa tradition of North Africa. Together they’ve already been hitting the road, meeting Berber musicians in the heart of the Sahara, playing a gig in an abandoned airport in Berlin, and recording with Archie Shepp. The adventure continues for an evening at Ramatuelle.

hing that would shape 20th century pop music: swing, improvised solos, and the proper use of microphones when singing. Armstrong was a gifted entertainer: the King of Jazz was actually even the King of Pop before ‘pop music’ even existed. It’s about time that someone pays tribute to him. And who could be better suited than Dr. John? The pianist and singer has everything it takes to do justice to the legendary Armstrong. He has that raw, raspy voice, the show talent, the right groove, and the street credibility of a New Orleans bluesman. From jazz heaven, Satchmo must have been listening in to this Baloise Session performance of Dr. John’s band ‘The Nite Trippers’, featuring trombonist Sarah Morrow and trumpeter Arturo Sandoval.

What happens if you ask a jazz artist to just sit down and play in front of a camera, without any further ado? Some of the greatest jazz musicians in any style - from blues and boogie-woogie to bebop and beyond - rise to the challenge, in these intimate and exciting jazz solo sessions. One of them is award-winning drummer Matt Wilson, who has played the drums since his early youth, after seeing Buddy Rich play a drum battle in a 1968 episode of the Lucille Ball Show. Since then, Wilson has arguably become the hardest-working man in jazz: next to being a veteran drummer whose musical versatility, open mind and friendly smile has kept him in high demand in bands led by luminaries such as Charlie Haden, Lee Konitz, Hank Jones, and many others, Wilson is a successful composer, bandleader, producer and teacher. But how will he manage without his legendary colleagues in a solo setting? Watch today’s SOLO session, and learn.
