It seems like a great place to be in a few days, Jazzahead! is an annual exhibition, the most important meeting spot for the international jazz scene taking place in Bremen, Germany. The numbers are pretty impressive, the bands have to apply for the showcase festival. This year there were 587 applications from 42 different countries. Four juries had to select the jazzahead! showcase programme – they have reached the final selection – 40 bands from 16 countries. The bands will present themselves on the three stages of Exhibition Center Bremen and Kulturzentrum Schlachhof at jazzahead! (21 – 24 April, 2016). I have posted many jazzahead showcases before, some of them are unforgettable, check the playlist below for some surprises!
