Intimate Jazz Concerts
On the last Saturday in August the SummerJazzCycleTour gets underway again. This tour combines cycling through Groningen's lovely Reitdiep valley with listening to intimate jazz concerts in medieval churches and farmer's barns. Jazz buffs can choose from one of five cycling routes. On the way they can stop and enjoy several different concerts, featuring contemporary jazz and improvisational music from at home and abroad. Kaja Draksler (piano) and Lotte Anker (alto saxophone) perform at the church in Klein Wetsinge at 4.30 p.m. and 5.45 p.m.
Kaja Draksler and Lotte Anker
Pianist Kaja Draksler performed to great acclaim at the Moers Festival wit Susana Santos Silva, who plays trumpet with the Lama Trio. When asked which older generation improviser she would like to see at the SummerJazzCycleTour she immediately chose Lotte Anker, with whom she recently shared the stage in Stockholm. Danish saxophonist Lotte Anker (1958) has been playing improvisational music sinds 1980 and has performed with the likes of Marilyn Crispell, Ikue Mori, Graig Taborn and Fred Frith.
