A Dignified Autumnal Festival
The ninth international festival Nõmme Jazz is taking place in autumn. After several years when trying to fit it in to the early summer season we finally came to the conclusion that the audience prefers to spend the dusky summer evenings outside and to enjoy the cozy atmosphere of the jazz mood in the autumn.
It’s the first time that the visual sides of the concerts will be designed as well using the light decorations by our partners ”AS Adam” and “Hektor Light”.
For the first time we have the honour to feature such legendary name as Raimonds Pauls. Most people here know Pauls as the song writer and are less are aware that he is a jazz and classical music pianist. In the festival we have a rare opportunity to listen to the Maestro's interpretations.
The concert of Raimonds Pauls and youth choir “Kamer” with a programme of Bach and Pauls music is the main concert of the festival.
Organizing the festival in Tallinn Nõmme district, we have set a goal to enliven the cultural life in Nõmme and to bring together different musicians in international projects where nearly all the combos include Estonian musicians.
The cultural exchange continues at the late night jam sessions where elder and younger musicians meet on the stage to derive inspiration, get experiences and to offer the audience the opportunity to blend in with the distinctive atmosphere of jam session.
As a small festival Nõmme Jazz has put emphasis on exclusiveness. The audience size to every concert is limited, however, a special bond between the performer and listener can be created.
It is our wish to offer you the best sensations both on the artistic and organizational side of the festival
