London Jazz Festival 2013

United Kingdom(Great Britain)

London Jazz Festival is one of the greatest events in the UK capital where many different musicians gather to present their skills and music. It is definitely an event that you can’t miss. This year I went to the Barbican Centre, where apart from other artists Archie Shepp’s Attica Blues Orchestra was playing that brought the event to the conclusion. The repertoire is the collision of Afro-American music.  Apart from the tracks from his  Attica Blues album (1972) commemorating the victims of Attica Prison riots such as “Attica Blues” or “Blues For Brother George Jackson” there were other great songs like “Open arms”. Definitely music for the soul!

W tym roku postanowiłam wybrać się na zakończenie festiwalu jazzowego w Londynie, który jest jedną z największych imprez w stolicy Wielkiej Brytanii, której nie można przeoczyć. Udałam sie na koncert Attica Blues Orchestra Archie’go Sheppa w Barbican Centre i muszę przyznać, że był wyborowy. Oprócz kawałków z albumu Attica Blues (1972) upamiętniającego ofiary buntu w więzieniu Attica w USA w 1971 takich jak  “Attica Blues” czy “Blues For Brother George Jackson” usłyszeć można było inne świetne utwory jak piękna ballada “Open Ams”. Po prostu uczta dla duszy!
