Dear friends,

Amongst us, we have many people who can speak Russian and this information is mostly for them but also for all those who search a link about a jazz artist, his music, info…

There is a great site called “Jazz Calendar” and it is a mine of gold ! You can discover talented jazz musicians, vocalists, composers from all over the world. The plus is that some of the videos shared are well hidden on the web but they are here, thanks to a team of jazz fans/researchers/collectors who work daily for our pleasure.

It is with pure joy that I share this link with you and I’m sure you will enjoy it !

Jazz Club in Helsinki (Finland): Happy Jazz Club Storyville

In Jazz Clubs on March 20, 2013 at 10:16 pm

Dear friends,

What a pleasure I had last week to discover this Jazz Club in Helsinki. On a corner, you get in, then go downstairs and surprise ! Live jazz from 10 pm until…… and in front of the band, a dance floor waits for your steps. After looking at the menu (made as a vinyl record sleeve) I took a diner which was a mix between Italian-Creole-Cajun food. Excellent. You know that this blog wants to promote jazz clubs where you feel like home. This place is one of them ! For sure ! People who are working in this club are very kind and welcome you as they know you for years. The music manager is a musician and the bands are chosen following a high sense of quality and entertainment.

The site of Happy Jazz Storyville is in Finnish but if you want to know the program, do not hesitate to ask !

club@storyville.fi

It is one of my warmest recommendations of the year ! You only have to travel to Finland 🙂 !

Enjoy
