Festival Jazz.hr

The 27th anniversary of Jazz.hr festival will take place from 18-21 October in the „Blagoje Bersa“ Concert Hall at the Academy of Music in Zagreb while presenting a series of prominent jazz musicians and bands. This festival already hosted many jazz stars such as Maria Schneider, Vienna Art Orchestra, Miroslav Vitous, James Carter, Charles Lloyd, Monty Alexander, James Morrison, Jon Faddis, New York Voices, Jean Luc Ponty, Richard Bona, Michel Camilo, Charles Tolliver, Randy Brecker, Vijay Iyer and Lee Konitz. The organizer, Croatian Composers’ Society insists on their concept of promoting of the current Croatian and European jazz scene.

The unconventional septet of Austrian musicians Shake Stew that consists of interesting improvisers and personalities of the new European jazz scene will be the opening the festival. They are currently promoting their new album „The Golden Fang“ which is based on the rich sound, a wide range of musical ideas and influences that include various forms of art.

Polish Tomas Chyla Quintet, counting the best young Polish musicians who have collaborated with famous artists, redefines mainstream jazz by giving it an honest and romantic air. The audience in Zagreb will be able to hear their songs from the album „Eternal Entropy“, published this year.

This year's edition of Elvis Stanić project Jazz Ex Tempore will be exploring the sounds of „Northern Silence“. Musicians with two completely different, but in some segments very similar musical traditions, will tell and exchange their stories in order to create entirely new music on the spot and on the trail of the best traditions of both worlds. The musicians are connected through the common language of jazz, used by all, differing in accent.

Eric Reed Trio's performance will be the closing the festival. During his career, Reed has collaborated with renowned jazz musicians such as Wynton Marsalis, Clark Terry, Elvin Jones, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Ron Carter, Christian McBride, Dianne Reeves and Cassandra Wilson. He recorded approximately 30 albums with his own and other bands. Reed also works as a composer and writes music for the film industry. As is his music for the comedy “Life” with Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence. 


The Jazz Ex Tempore is an intercultural and educational project which deals with traditional music heritage.

The starting point is the search for similarities and differences in traditional music expression that later merge into modern jazz music, with key idea being the one on preservation of cultural heritage and cultural identity.

Jazz Ex Tempore is a meeting of the significant artists from several countries which compose, rehearse and play along the new and original repertoire during a one-week event. Each of them brings their own traditional music idioms and original compositions, that are going to be explored together, interactively rearranged, rehearsed, and performed at the end of the meeting.

This year's edition of the Jazz Ex Tempore project explores sounds of the "Northern Silence" - it deals and compares a Croatian and Norwegian music tradition, interpreted by the language of Jazz.

Musicisans from two completely different (even in some segments also very similar) music tradition, will tell their story, share it together and will create a new music, on the spot - combining the best from both worlds.

The connecting factor is a common language, the language of the jazz - which they all speak fluently, everyone with their own accent - creating a colorful difference in a common expression and creation of the new music.

Jelačić Days is a traditional event in Zaprešić that is held three times per year, to commemorate the birth (October) and death (May) of Ban Josip Jelačić, and on the feast day of St. Joseph (March). Josip Jelačić was a Croatian Ban (viceroy) who symbolised the aspirations of the Croatian peoples for independence from imperial conquerors. After a tumultuous life spent battling for the Croatian interests, he was buried in the Chapel of St. Joseph in Zaprešić in 1859. Therefore, on the Town Day, the people of Zaprešić celebrate the life and work of this great historical figure. The event includes a series of activities, including the Jelačić Ball, equestrian jumping tournament, scooter rally, bicycle rally, International Commercial Fair, and others. Visitors can also see the Jelačić Novi Dvori complex, a valuable example of preserved cultural and historical heritage.
