Vienna Jazz Floor 2019, Layla Zoe

21st ViennaJazzFloor

Jazz and blues thrive brilliantly in the world's capital city of music and there are so many small clubs with exquisite acts. Once a year — in November, the "Month of Jazz and Blues" — the scene celebrates the ViennaJazzFloor festival, to which it invites internationally renowned jazz players to perform in eleven Viennese clubs: Blue Tomato, Gemischter Satz, Jazzland, Martinschlössl, Miles Smiles, Reigen, Sargfabrik, Tunnel, Zwe, Local and 1019 Jazzclub.

The Austrian and international greats of the scene present themselves at the more than 150 concerts. The offering at the ViennaJazzFloor festival has never been so big and varied. The pallet ranges from classical jazz via swing to modern, impro and funk. All underpinned by the blues, of course.

Legends and shooting stars

The Jazzland, Vienna's oldest jazz cellar, is an institution. Rossano Sportiello, a jazz pianist in global demand, performs here, as does Rudi Berger, a virtuoso violinist, who is now returning home after many years spent working in South and North America.

The Reigen presents world stars such as Layla Zoe, Adam Holzman & Brave New World, and Popa Chubby.

The Blue Tomato traditionally focuses on modern and free jazz and presents international stars such as Dave Rampis or the US band Goldfinger, as well as Austrian greats such as Kollegium Kalksburg.

The local scene is at home at the Gemischter Satz, while at Jazz im Martinschlössl there's both classical jazz with Blue Note Six as well as free & impro. The Local focuses on blues as well as musical treats from the Tex Mex scene (Shandon Sahm & Douglas Linton). The "living room of jazz" in Vienna, the Miles Smiles, invites musicians from the southern reaches of Austria.

The Tunnel is, as usual, diverse: from the English jazz comedian Earl Okin to Elias and the Yiddish Maidls. World music is at home in the Sargfabrik; from the ever young bedrock Misthaufen to the two editions of the "Long Night of World Music" with Mamadou Diabaté, everything is represented. Impressive: there's live music at Zwe seven days a week. The 1019 Jazzclub is all about light rock heaviness – young musicians find a forum here.

The line-up continues in this way evening after evening for the whole of November – a festival for fans of live music and everyone who appreciates music venues away from the big stages.
