No modern jazz here, only contemporary. Since the 1970s, jazz has been constantly changing, becoming increasingly diverse. It has evolved under the influence of different musical styles such as electronic music. Talented musicians—saxophonists, bassists, pianists, and others—compose new works using harmonies hitherto little heard. It is these groups that make the night sky of Athens vibrate to their compelling music, in a neo-industrial decor perfectly suited to the occasion. This year, guest artists, all from Europe, include The Wonderfall Quartet and Nicole Conte.
