i asked a few friends to join me for this concert of filip jers, a swedish jazz musician and composer being popular for playing jazz with his harmonica, but they weren’t impressed by the idea of jazz with a harmonica. i was and very curious as well. i like jazz, but i am not mad about it, especially free or modern jazz is not my thing. but the idea of jazz with a harmonica sounded really interesting. and it was! not only because of the harmonica, because of the music and the whole band. the concert was fully booked, no place left, it was a great evening and beautiful music thanks to the nordics embassy for that. I am now a fan! and i am sure you will love it too. check out the webpage or youtube for some music. i have never thought about it, but learned yesterday as well, that harmonicas need to be in temperature… so filip jers brought one of theese electric heating pad people use for their rheumatic joins for his harmonicas to make sure they are in the right temperature.
i decided that jazz music had to be photographed in black & white.
i think the guy in front here is someone from their music company, but haven’t listened properly, so not sure
