Live Foyn Friis Quintet (NOR/CZ/SK)
Norwegian Live Foyn Friis lives in Denmark. From here, she has exploded onto the international stage with her personal type of indie-jazz. Jazz Special’s critic was, to put it mildly, excited over her most recent album, Live Foyn Friis with Strings, where the string section gently becomes part of her sound. Already her debut release, Joy Visible, was nominated for The Best Danish Jazz Album at the Danish Music Awards. Soon after, she climbed all the way to the top and won awards for Young Jazz Composer of the Year and Denmark’s New Jazz Star. Live Foyn Friis has toured in Europe, USA, Africa and South America, and has been selected for Denmark’s musical export shipment to Germany, where her concerts have been completely sold out. The emerging singer has performed with artists such as Brian Blade, John Scofield Überjam Band, Thomas Morgan and Bobby McFerrin. She will perform with guitarist Stian Swensson and front Czech and Slovak jazzmen: saxophonist Luboš Soukup (Points), bassist Rastislav Uhrík (Vertigo) and drummer Matin Novák (Lanugo, Lenka Dusilová).
Admission: seating CZK 250, standing CZK 180.
