It has been twenty years since the death of Miles Davis, one of the greatest musicians of all time and an artist who performed three times at the BJF. In this regard we will be opening the 28th BJF with a performance of a band whose members are musicians Miles played with. They are all authentic stars of contemporary jazz, among which are Wallace Roney, Miles’ only student and the owner of his trumpet; Omar Hakim and Daryl Jones, the unforgettable rhythm section; and Larry Coryell, an unforgettable guitarist. During the whole festival there will be a rhapsody of wind instruments, red-hot trumpets and saxophones, given by performers like the great Dave Douglas and Joe Lovan Quintet, the genius new jazz star Ambrose Akinmusire, the Latin jazz master Jerry Gonzalez, and the radical NYC band Mostly Other People Do the Killing. Together they present the framework of this year’s festival. Other performances include the unique jazz beat poetry of Ursula Rucker, the authentic jazz cabaret of Das Kapital, and the dance grooves of the Danish trio Ibrahim Electric. This year the audience will see a preview of the best Serbian jazz musicians from the diaspora, including Nenad Vasilic, who lives in Austria, and Srdjan Ivanovic’s Blazin’ Quartet from Holland. The Serbian jazz overview will be closed by the impressions of Jovan Maljokovic and his guests. The program will include a special cooperation between Serbia’s prominent alternative rock band Darkwood Dub and singer Bisera Veletanlic, through which we continue the revaluation of our jazz scene.
