Defining Jazz

He often swears, rarely shaves, wears what he likes, stamps his feet during concerts… In classical music circles, he is still occasionally frowned upon for his loose interpretation of traditions. But Nigel Kennedy never strived for attention from just those circles, preferring instead to look beyond and work on interpretations of other genres, including rock and jazz. He has described his philosophy by saying “I just play what I feel like playing at the time.” During the concert opening the 24th Summer Jazz Festival Kraków, we will hear the premiere of his latest genre-spanning project Nigel Kennedy Plays Jimi Hendrix. On 28 June, the British (and somewhat Polish) violin virtuoso is supported by the American guitar maestro Mike Stern at the Auditorium Maximum of the Jagiellonian University. And the concert is just a taster of the feast awaiting us in July – you will find the detailed menu in the next edition of “Karnet”. (Bartosz Suchecki, “Karnet”)
