A great showcase concert of Tamara Obrovac quartet at Jazzahead Bremen - European Jazz Night
Among few hundred applications, the expert jury chose Tamara Obrovac quartet to play at this year's Jazzahead, trade fair for jazz professionals, within European jazz Night.
Tony Duddley Evans, the jury member who announced the concert, said that the choice was not easy, but "this band stood up".
Here are his words after the showcase:
I was most impressed by Tamara Obrovac's performance at the Jazzahead showcase.
Tamara draws on the folk traditions of Istria but puts them in the context of a jazz trio and the resulting music is a very original and attractive blend of jazz and traditional music.
The quartet played four of Tamara's songs, inspired by her homeland Istria; check the video footage on following link.
