copenhagen jazzhouse needs help

Nov.20, 2014

the danish “jazzpolice” and media…. is critizising copenhagen jazzhouse for not making enough ” jazz” concerts.
they need your help in fighting this!
the new programming is amazing – highly creative – and it atrracts a younger and mixed audience to JAZZ, the way I see it.
we need copenhagen jazzhouse – and we need them to work the creative path they are doing!

 

we need more places like jazzhouse!!!
