Barka Fabianova tells us with images and words the last evening of the festival and of the photo contest.
A Festival with unique atmosphere and exceptionally friendly and educated audience — this is the most common description of Jazzinec by musicians who took part in it. Founded in 1999, it is one of the oldest in the Czech Republic, is held in the small town of Trutnov, and is organized by the Association “Alternative for Culture” supported by the City of Trutnov, the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and the Office of Hradec Králové Region, together with The Cultural Centre Uffo of Trutnov.
The festival hosted such world legends of music as Al Di Meola, John Medeski, Richard Bona or Bill Evans and, over the years it has grown by hosting many events, such as the Jazz World Photo competition and various exhibitions, as well as workshops for musicians and listening evenings. Jazzinec also runs its own internet radio. The festival offers the chance for Czech and Slovak musicians to meet with many world stars.
The final evening took place on March 24 in UFFO Cultural Centre with performances by the Jazzinec Band, a quartet of young musicians who performed two Lars Danielsson’s tunes from the Liberetto project, by the young Czech pianist Kristina Barta, that took her distinctive and fresh approach to the arrangement, and to her own compositions, and by string quintet Vołosi.
The Jazz World Photo competition winners were also announced. The third place went to the Polish Anna Rezulak, the second place to the Austrian Markus Lackinger and the winner was the French Didier Jallais.
Swedish bassist, cellist, composer and arranger Lars Danielsson is well-known and admired for his lyrical playing and strong groove. At Jazzinec Festival he presented the Liberetto project (featuring Gregory Privat on piano, Magnus Öström on drums and guitarist John Paricelli), that discovers new musical spaces through various music genres. The All-stars band led by the Slovak saxophone musketeer Radovan Tariska focuses on a spectacular sound and a trembling adaptation of standards. In the center of attention of the band was an extraordinary 7-years old bass player, Aron Hodek, who has been invited to NAMM in Los Angeles and has taken on Boots Collins or Victor Wooten.
