Besides the annual festival So What’s Next? in early November, throughout the year we present the best and most exciting jazz & beyond at downtown locations like Fifth | NRE. Swiss pianist Colin Vallon and trio are taking us on a musical trip that meanders between minimal music and jazz on Wednesday 4 April at Fifth | NRE.
Before they took the stage and rocked it at the So What’s Next? festival last November, we had the chance to speak with Tank and the Bangas about the reason why they make music, the enormous dedication they put into it and about band members becoming like family members.
This is not an aftermovie but an open invitation to next year’s 6th edition: So What’s Next? 2-3-4 November 2018. Meanwhile enjoy the afterglow of SWN17 with images of this incredibly vibrant music scene and all artists in it.
We hang out with guiratist Matthew Stevens at the banks of the Hudson river. Stevens is named “a singular talent brimming with a strong identity” (DownBeat Magazine). He’s also trying to make sense of life through his music.
Cuban pianist Aruán Ortiz has been called “the latest Cuban wunderkind to arrive in the US” (BET Jazz). So What’s Next Magazine interviewed him in his home in Brooklyn for the 3rd episode of New York Sessions.
So What’s Next? goes New York and meets up with the artists that are coming to the festival. In this first episode we hook up with singer/cello player Gabriel Royal who takes us to his playground: the subway.
