Cologne Jazzweek goes into the third round
12-18 August 2023

The journey continues. Also in 2023 unique artists:inside of the Cologne, German and international jazz scene will be experienced on the many stages throughout the city. Whether in the Stadtgarten, LOFT, King Georg, Open Air, the Ehrenfeld-Clubs or our new venues in the Filmhaus, the Klaus von Bismarck Sendesaal in the WDR or the Philharmonie - new encounters will arise and new stories will be written. Be part of the festival summer 2023 and dive into the wonderful world of improvised music!

In 2014, Shannon Barnett moved from New York to Cologne, where the Australian-born trombonist played in the WDR Big Band for five years. In 2019, she left there to take up a professorship in jazz trombone at the Cologne University of Music and Dance. Early on, Barnett stood out for her stylistic versatility and aesthetic nonchalance, and it's now hard to imagine the jazz scene in Cologne and beyond without her. With the same seriousness and fun, she feels equally at home in New Orleans jazz or Dixieland as in jazz modernism and the musical avant-garde. With her quartet without harmony instrument she has released two albums so far, on which she plays a modern jazz music that she herself describes as "fiery to gloomy, focused on rhythmic elements and quirky humorous". Barnett met a "sister in spirit" in saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Aurora Nealand ten years ago in Copenhagen. Much like her, Nealand feels equally at home in many forms of jazz. With her band The Royal Roses, she invokes the original swinging music of African Americans in the southern United States; then again, in drummer John Hollenbeck's current quartet George, she is focused on the contemporary.

The complete program of all participating venues can be found on the Cologne Jazzweek website.
