Jazzland Vienna

Back in 1972, when Jazzland first opened its doors, the local jazz scene was small and, largely, underground. From the start, our policy of teaming international stars and our own home-grown jazz talent had a decidedly fertilizing effect on Austria's jazz scene, helping establish jazz, a decidedly twentieth centry form, as a key feature in Viennese cultural life.

In addition to just about every Austrian musician of note, more than three hundred American stars have appeared in the Jazz cellar under the Ruprechtskirche: blues legends Roosevelt “The Honeydripper” Sykes, Memphis Slim, Big Joe Williams and Little Brother Montgomery; classic jazz names Wild Bill Davison, Bud Freeman, Max Kaminsky and Jimmy McPartland; swing greats Teddy Wilson, Clark Terry, Harry “Sweets” Edison and Benny Carter; modernists Art Farmer, Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, Ray Brown and Herb Ellis;even such out-and-out avant-gardists as Dave Liebman, Lee Konitz, Paul Motian and Bob Brookmeyer.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
