STINGRAY DJAZZ PRESENTS: BACK TO SCHOOL
FRIDAYS THROUGHOUT SEPTEMBER AT 21:00 CEST
For many around the world, September represents the start of the new school year, be it at school, college, or university. Therefore, every Friday evening in September, Stingray DJAZZ invites you to watch a series of concerts dedicated to the start of the new academic year. And which music reflects more accurately that peculiar back-to-school mood than bebop? Bebop's trailblazing pioneers studied tirelessly to master their trade, sending their more traditionally minded colleagues back to school and passing on their musical philosophies to countless generations of music students, all the way up to the present day! Revel at pianist Thelonious Monk's revolutionary music on September 3 at 21:00 CEST and tune in for trumpeter and bebop professor Dizzy Gillespie on September 10 at 21:00 CEST. Saxophone colossus Sonny Rollins will blow you away on September 17 at 21:00 CEST, followed by powerhouse bassist Charles Mingus on September 24 - all on Stingray DJAZZ.
