Does anybody still remember? 1 October 1999: Enjoy Jazz’s first round! Nightmares On Wax made the start at the time, and perhaps not even the Festival founder Rainer Kern, well-known for his visionary ideas, could then imagine that Enjoy Jazz would not only continue but would even grow to become one of the most important jazz festivals in Europe. 15 years’ Enjoy Jazz is a good occasion to look back on the exciting developments, on stories that the Festival has written, onto friendships that were made and concepts that were developed further over long periods of time. In a talk with music journalist Wolfgang Sandner, Rainer Kern will share personal experiences and accompany the memories with selected music: How is it possible to create a six to seven week programme with over 80 concerts in a few months? What actually happens on backstage? Which anecdotes have become lasting memories, which surprises were experienced? How has jazz changed in the last 15 years—and what role does the Festival play in the lively jazz scene? And not last: What are the plans for the next 15 years? The matinee is hence not only a nostalgic retrospective but will also be a prospective outlook. And a celebration for all those who have made Enjoy Jazz possible in the first place—for friends, sponsors and fans.
