Live Music with edite Štrausa

Our next Wednesday night Live Music is here on February 28 pl. 19:00 for a concert of jazz standards and original music. This time we will offer a unique line-up – Edīte Štrauss, a jazz singer who obtained a master’s degree at the Jāzeps Vītols Academy of Music of Latvia and improved her skills during her studies in the exchange program at the Antwerp Royal Conservatory, Belgium and L. Refice Conservatory, Italy. Participated in the international “Great Plains “(USA) “Refice Jazz” (IT) and local festivals “Starptautikas Opereta Festival”. “Ventspils Groove”, “Saulkrasti Jazz”, “deciBels”, etc. Performed at the Embassy of Latvia in Finland. Performed together with the University of Nebraska UNO big band, Ventspils big band, JVLMA & RKDS joint big band and the National Armed Forces big band.

In this concert with piano accompaniment, we will be delighted by jazz pianist, improviser and composer Matīss Žilinskis, who has been a musician for the 4th generation and is the great-grandson of the great composer and pianist Arvīds Žilinskis. Matīss grandfather Valts and father Gints also grew up around the piano and are excellent pianists. But despite his genes, Matīss combines exceptional talent with great work ability, as a result of which Matīss not only plays, but also composes and improvises in real time. At the end of last year, Matīss debut album and concert program “Childhood Memories” was released, which was created by painting children’s days, adventures of that time, smells, tastes, feelings, moods and observations in sounds. His 12 different compositions are united by melodiousness and easily perceptible harmonic language, as well as lightness and lightness of expression.

Andris Grunte is one of the most sought-after musicians in Latvia and it can be said unequivocally that he is the best Latvian jazz bassist, who has participated in countless recordings with all the leading and also European musicians, plays in the Māris Briežkalns quintet, Lauris Amantovs jazz quartet and other projects.

This evening, we will offer the Demon’s Share Vacation cocktail (€6) to concert attendees, as well as, of course, all drinks and snacks from the Lounge Fenikss drink menu.
