The «Jazz Recitals»™ concert series regularly presented the world's best jazz musicians, the masters of jazz, unamplified in a classical concert hall setting to a wide public in the best possible condition. The concerts were presented unamplified and acoustically pure, to give emphasis to the chamber music aspect of jazz.
The setting of the «Jazz Recitals»™ was worthy of the importance of these musician personalities - they were presented only in the large classical concert halls.
The series featured mostly pianists. The unaccompanied piano solo is considered the "high art" of jazz and was therefore the natural choice for unamplified concerts. Brilliant soloists of other sections and singers were often included in the line-up of that series as well.
This series we have organized in cooperation with
