About the event
This February, Delhi will swing to the strings of the guitar played by the great Stanley Jordan as the iconic Jazz Utsav will be back bringing the legendary musician to the city on 19th February 2017. In association with Capital Jazz, the Jazz Utsav returns to the city as part of Teamwork Arts’ Jazz India Circuit. A definitive event for jazz-lovers all through the 70s and 80s, the forthcoming Jazz Utsav brings yet another of the jazz maestros to captivate Delhi audiences with the soundscapes of classic jazz wafting through the crisp winter air.
The festival will ‘put the classic back into jazz’, recreating the raw energy, passion, and sheer genius of the analog times through performances by Indian and international artistes. For more than three decades, Jazz Utsav has experienced performances by maestros such as Max Roach, Freddie Hubbard and Eric Truffaz Quartet. And this year, with Stanley Jordan lighting up the bill, the celebration is set to live up to its legacy.
Jazz Utsav is, in association with Capital Jazz, a part of Teamwork Arts& Jazz India Circuit - an endeavour to spread the word and sound of jazz across the country through various concerts that span the spectrum of the fascinating genre.
Earlier, in November 2016, Jazz India Circuit gave aficionados in Goa a taste of new-age contemporary artistes from the genre with the Goa International Jazz Live Festival (GIJLF) which celebrated ‘the joy of the experiment’ -- experimental jams of jazz filled with punk, funk, and other edgy styles.
