Due to the requirements of the Health Ministry, the concerts will be held online. It will be possible to watch the broadcast. We'll inform about time and links. The program includes five concerts, performances by ten ensembles, 37 musicians, including the famous Argentine pianist Gabriel Palatchi, the virtuoso guitarist from Brazil Marcelo Nami, as well as the new repatriates – debutants of the festival, vocalist Hassid Lidan, flutist Lena Folk, pianist Stanislav Chumakov, drummer and percussionist Vladimir (Big) Glushko and the musicians from the elite of Israeli jazz: saxophonists Yuval Cohen, Albert Beger and Lenny Sendersky, trumpeter Grigory Rivkin, drummers Yogev Shitrit and Chaim Peskof, percussionist Gilad Dobretsky, bassists Ehud Ettun and Tal Gamlieli. The founder and the art director of the festival is the world known musician, one of the leading masters of free improvisation, Slava Ganelin. Jazz-Globus will be the world's first festival dedicated to one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century, saxophonist Charlie Parker. August 29 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of a musician who revolutionized jazz and transformed it from light entertainment music into serious art. Founded by Parker and his associates Gillespie, Monk and Clarke, the jazz bebop style involved small bands of top-class musicians who played long solo improvisations. This style attracted serious music lovers and academic musicians, who were amazed at the skill of boppers, to jazz clubs in New York in the 40s. The festival will be opened by Bebop Quintet, an ensemble of Israeli traditional jazz stars. The program includes music from Parker and his era. Other festival concerts will feature different styles of jazz music, but each of the ensembles will express in music their correlation to the bebop style and its great founder.
