Jazzfietsen van Zuid naar Noord

Stay active as you discover the hidden gems of contemporary Dutch jazz at unconventional concert locations. Experience three remarkable concerts at extraordinary, adventurous locations across the city. What can you expect? Our programmers are known for treating you to a musical tasting. What we can already reveal is that Artist in Focus Alessandro Fongaro has chosen his boxing gym as the location. This year Café Dox is the starting point for Jazzfietsen from South to North. Come and take a trip to special locations through the city with impressive concerts.

It is up to Alessandro Fongaro, North Sea Round Town's Artist in Focus 2024, to deliver a dazzling performance in the boxing gym where he once started taking boxing lessons. His personal interest in boxing gave him the idea to bring together the musicians he works with intensively at this location to create new work: this is a unique opportunity for Fongaro, together with Bo van der Werf and Sun-Mi Hong to enter the boxing ring. Boxing is something that attracted several musicians throughout the history of jazz, with Miles Davis being the most infamous. The essence is the same: rhythm, improvisation, flexibility, etc., are all qualities that are key to both worlds. The idea is to revive the tradition and love for jazz and boxing through a new interpretation of songs from the Great American Songbook, improvisation and original compositions.
