Lost in Genre: JAZZ for the rest of your life

Jazz music doesn`t have an expiration date. Get dressed in fancy clothes and go enjoy some cool jazz.

50s jazz music with Deniss Pashkevich

On 22nd April at “HAPPY DAYS & NIGHTS” nightclub there`s a dance party going on! Deniss Pashkevich (saxophone), Stanislavs Judins (bass), Janis Jaunalksnis (drums) and Atis Andersons (piano) will play 50s/60s jazz music – “hard bop”. “Hard bop” is called the last genre to dance to in the jazz history.

The difference between “hard bop” and other jazz genres, such as swing or “be bop” is in its harmonic and rhythmic style. The music focuses on more blues and gospel traditions, therefore making the audience “swing” along.

You`ll hear John Coltrane, Clifford Brown, Dexter Gordon and other 50s “hard bop” star`s music.
