With 3 concerts in the main venue Dom Omladine, the Belgrade Jazz fest 2015 has started. Although the official opening will take place tonight with for example James Brandon Lewis (USA), this pre-opening was a good way to get acquainted with the Serbian Jazz Scene.
All 3 concerts were different. Hashima was more free jazz and conceptual with much improvisation while Naked had more Balkan influences and their music brought a small uptempo party to the scene. The last concert of Vladimir Kostadinov and his quartet was more classical jazz with nice compositions and good pianoplay. Entertaining evening of good quality jazzmusic.
