Fabiana Striffler - Hot Jazz Violin


THE VIOLIN is often underrepresented in Jazz music - and we intend to rectify that. Drawing inspiration for the repertoires of Stuff Smith and Ray Nance, here we present the violin in all its swinging glory. This is not a concert to be missed; performing music both subtle and danceable. “And now Something Completely Different “, as Monty Pythons used to say. I didn’t quote that without reason however. The mix of gags, skills, techniques and endless looking for a way to expand self-expression results it creating recording which challenges the listener by constant shift of gears and moods. (HIFI Critic)
”Fabiana is one of the most exciting violinists to emerge onto the jazz scene in years! Her playing is the perfect combination of soulfulness, surprise, a beautiful sound and great technique.” (Ken Peplowski)

The Zig Zag is proud to announce a brand new and fresh Sunday concert series that showcases a community of jazz artists responsible for bringing about an explosion of energy and life into the Berlin jazz scene. The series will feature some of the most in demand, highly skilled and exciting young jazz talents in the scene today. Going against the trend of complexity, abstraction and the “academization” of the arts, these young masters have taken the jazz scene by surprise by packing in the clubs and bringing back to life a love and passion for hard swinging music. Performances are completely acoustic with little to no amplification. Subtle interaction, melodic focus and soulful virtuosity is at play here. If you’re interested in listening to some of the finest swinging sounds of jazz this is not an event to miss out on.
