Saturday, June 27th 2015, UniMensa, Cologne, beginning at 4pm!
The 1st edition of the festival has the title “young european jazz composers”. We invited five composers from Germany, Europe and Brasil to present their music with co musicians in several different groups!

The Background:

Even though Cologne is well known for its jazz scene, hardly anyone outside the scene knows that! There`s a jazz concert every day of the week, but mostly in the backyard of small bars in the side streets. In the underground. The Cologne Summerjazz festival tries to bring that scene out of the underground right in the middle of the student life of Cologne! Organized by the AStA of the Uni Cologne the festival brings the modern jazz to Cologne`s students, who often don`t know about Cologne`s cultural diversity.
The Cologne Summerjazz festival is a no-profit organisation. Financed besides other by the AStA, the city of Cologne, Früh-Kölsch an the HfMT Cologne, the entrance can by free and the all involved musicians and helpers can be paid for their work!
