Jazzit – Jazz in Theatre, a culture club regularly offering Jazz concerts in the largest sense at a variety of venues throughout Salzburg since 1981, including such jazz-greats as Lester Bowie, David Murray, Henry Threadgill, Cecil Taylor, Steve Coleman, Marc Ribot, Moondog and Louis Sclavis.
After having been without its own location for a long time, Jazzit finally found a suitable spot at Elisabethstraße 11, - only a few steps away from the Hotel Hohenstauffen - near the main train station. Following renovation work, the Jazzit:Music:Club Salzburg opened its doors in February 2002. Since then, weekly concerts have been taking place in their spacious event hall with a music spectrum ranging from jazz to avant-garde – on to Improvised, electronic and New Music and through to Worldmusic, Klezmer & Co.
National as well as international musicians can be relished here – talented newcomers as well as already well-known acts. On top of it all, Tuesdays feature jam sessions in the Jazzit:Bar – a separate but adjacent hotspot; Wednesdays offer the DJ-Line "Homebase" (admission free).
Particularly attractive for the alternative scene – young and old – the Jazzit is a venue for entertainment in a relaxed atmosphere – a place to enjoy a drink and good music while meeting your friends; one that has developed into something no one in the regional or international culture scene could do anymore without – a place for continuous quality in concerts featuring jazz, avant-garde, electronic music, jam sessions - promoting new talents and its own CD label – the Jazzit:CD-Edition. Constantly expanding – never at a standstill – open to new, innovative, experimental ideas – this is what the Jazzit is all about.
"Now you has jazz"
Read there, what top-of-the-top artists like The Golden Gate Quintett, Greg Koss, René Franc, Sam Woodyard, Pete & Barbara Lancaster, Bob Williams, Embajadores Paraguayos and Barney Kessel wrote into Adi Juestel's guest book, when they visited his jazz clubs:
Golden Gate Quintett
Being inn-keeper and practising jazz-freak (trumpet, piano, organ, vocals) in one person, Adi gave home and meetingplace to well known artists like Monty Alexander, Mal Waldron, Axel Zwingenberger, Fatty George, Oskar Klein. Friedrich Gulda, Wild Bill Davis, Jimmy Woode of the Duke-Ellington Big Band, Blind John Davis, Eroll Dixon, Walace Davenport, The Golden Gate Quartet, The Legends of Jazz, Manitas de Plata, Los Paraguayos, Paul Kuhn, Jose Feliciano, Bireli Lagrene, Art Farmer, Barney Kessel, just to mention some of them ...
