The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam proudly presents its twelve act of the JF Garage Concert, “The Reborn” by JumpforJazz in Hanoi on Saturday 5.11.2016.
JumpforJazz is back! After the very successful and well received ‘Chronology of Jazz’ series, JumpforJazz continues to surprise its audience by introducing a unique self composed fusion of Jazz and Vietnamese folksong.
Following its aim to support and encourage young and talented Vietnamese musicians to perform and participate in a wide variety of concerts, this time the JumpforJazz-band includes four well know musicians: Nguyen Huu Vuong on Piano, Nguyen Minh Duc on Double&Electric-Bass, Hoang Ha on Drums, and Nguyen Bao Long as leader on Saxophone.
‘The Reborn’ is new composition by JumpforJazz and will be introduced for the first time to the world at the Japan foundation Vietnam.
‘I love Jazz and strongly believe this music, like any, is a gift to everyone. This is how I came up with the idea for ‘JumpforJazz’, a production company that not only aims to bring Jazz to as big and diverse an audience as possible, through a wide variety of concerts, but more over strives to inspire and support young Vietnamese music students with a love for and a desire to play Jazz, by giving them a platform to play, learn and grow. I sincerely hope Viet Nam will soon be filled with many inspired and inspiring Jazz musicians.’ _Nguyen Bao Long, JumpforJazz, Music Director & Band Leader.
The concert starts at 8pm on Saturday 5 November 2016 in the courtyard (open stage) of the Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam (27 Quang Trung, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi).
