Hungarian vocalist Julia Karosi will perform at London’s 606 Jazz Club on Thursday 1 December as part of the 606 Musician XChange program.
Julia Karosi is one of Hungary’s leading jazz vocalists and a regular at the Budapest Jazz Club. Since the release of her latest album “Hidden Roots” Julia has been touring regularly throughout Europe while her album gained rave reviews and regular radio play. The concert at the 606 Jazz Club will be her London debut.
Generally, the 606 has a policy of only booking musicians who reside in the UK (though they can be of any nationality), however they do make an exception with the Musicians XChange program.
606 Owner Steve Rubie finds the XChange program important as it provides UK musicians who play at the Club the opportunity to work in other countries, particularly Hungary, where the 606 has an ongoing relationship with the Budapest Jazz Club. For more background information read this interview with Peter Pallai, program organiser at the Budapest Jazz Club and Jazz Curator Hungarian Cultural Institute.
The Musician’s XChange program receives no government funding and is a private initiative. Here at Jazz in Europe we applaud this and hope that Steve and Peter will find a way to broaden the program to other clubs throughout Europe.
On Thursday Julia Karosi will perform with UK musicians Gabriel Latchin piano, Flo Moore bass and Matt Fishwick drums.
