Burghausen has been a byword for jazz since 1970. For one week every March, the small town on the Salzach river turns into the German New Orleans. Ella Fitzgerald, Chris Barber, Roy Hargrove, Chick Corea and Dave Brubeck have all performed in Burghausen. The annual jazz week is one of the biggest festivals of its kind in the world. EuroArts presents a series of live recordings as well as a documentary about the legendary Jazz festival.
Explosive artistic engergy, experimental solos and beats, that'll make you dance: That's the Leon Betzl Trio (short: LBT)!
Rooted in Munich, Germany, pianist Leo Betzl, bass player Maximilian Hirning and drummer Sebastian Wolfgruber play their own version of acoustic techno and jazz fusion, that transcends genres. With their open and experimental style of music, they turn every concert hall into a dancefloor. Since the band was founded in 2016, they already won several prices, such as the Neuen Deutschen Jazzpreis 2018.
