Lately, I’ve rediscovered my interest in Jazz. I kind of grew up with Jazz music as my dad listened to it all the time when I was a kid but then I’ve lost the connection. But when I accompanied my mum and dad to an “Introduction to Jazz” at The State University of Music and the Performing Arts Stuttgart with the wonderful Alexander ‘Sandi’ Kuhn last December, I was into it again.
When you want to listen to world class Jazz music in Stuttgart, there’s a place you should check out: the BIX Jazzclub at Leonhardsplatz.
It’s an institution in Stuttgart since it opened its doors in 2006. Regional as well as famous international musicians perform at BIX every week and this club also partner of several festivals and events like the jazzopen for example.
I went there for the first time a few weeks ago with some friends to see the group “Soul Diamonds”. My friend Miri has seen them a few times before and recommended them strongly. And what can I say, she was right.
Soul Diamonds are what you call an “All-Stars-Band”, a combination of musicians with different backgrounds. They play well known songs but also impressive improvisations.
At that night, I fell in love with Fola Dadas voice and the magic, Klaus Graf can perform with his saxophone. What a great band.
If you want to see them, too, you’ve got the chance to do so at the 17th of April. Even though you won’t be able to get a table anymore(those are booked out within days!), normal tickets are still available.
