When jazz came to Aarhus – and what followed

Everybody knows that jazz was born in a wild New Orleans kitchen garden back in the day, but when and how did it come to Aarhus?

Where did it settle, propagate, and branch out into a myriad of genres?

Where has it lived for over 100 years, since it found itself to the city as the "wild kid" and quickly settled in?

What happened when the city's confused citizens and musicians first became acquainted with the king of the jazz instruments, the saxophone?

Where did you find the city's best - springy and swinging - jazz dance floor?

What ups and downs has Aarhus' jazz scene been through, and how is it really today?

Which Danish and foreign jazz stars have, over time, lightened up the Aarhus jazz sky?

On this tour, you will get answers to all this and more.

We start at the mirror pool in front of Musikhuset, walk a street parade on Strøget and continue through the squares in central Aarhus. And we end up meandering down Vestergade.
