Hot and swinging jazz from the Great American Songbook

The hot swing and jazz music of the 1930s and 1940s America is the source of inspiration for the jazz ensemble JazzVegaz. This music was created for intense listening and dancing in night and jazz clubs, cafes, and restaurants, as well as at festivals.

After educational trips to New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, and Las Vegas, The Great American Songbook has been thoroughly examined, resulting in a unique repertoire of hot jazz songs as well as a remarkable orchestral sound.

Audiences can hear Ellington compositions such as Black & Tan Fantasy, Stompy Jones, Rockin 'in Rythm and The Moose played in arrangements made for JazzVegaz – and with a sound close to the original American swing style.

Throughout their respective jazz careers, the musicians of JazzVegaz have played with big and well-known jazz names in both Europe and the USA – including Wild Bill Davidson, Clark Terry, Charlie Shavers, and Ben Webster. As dedicated jazz musicians, they have also been active in the creation and development of the Danish jazz scene, particularly in Aarhus.
