Christmas is just around the corner. For you who celebrate it, you should be really excited right now. There would be no Santa to bring you beautifully wrapped gifts, but hey, you can have a lot of JAZZ goodies whether you’ve been good or bad! While we are preparing seriously to launch our first ever Christmas event titled Jazzuality Christmas Jazz in Bandung which will come on December 22 at Bandung Indah Plaza (check all the info in this following article: http://jazzuality.com/jazz-events/jazzuality-christmas-jazz-at-bandung-indah-plaza/), for you who live in Jakarta there’s a FREE Christmas event that you can attend, featuring some of the best jazz players that can turn the game differently.
Interested? Now let’s see more infos. The Puri International Jazznight, better known as PuriJazz is going to launch its special segment to celebrate Christmas tomorrow (Wednesday, Dec 19, 2012) with the title of “DD Celebrates A Puri Jazzy Christmas).” The show will start at 8:00 pm, located at Double Doors Bar & Restaurant, Puri Indah, opposite the Puri Indah Hospital and Puri Indah Mall, Jakarta.
If you still haven’t heard about the PuriJazz yet, this is the new face of the legendary Jazznights at Eastern Promise which used to be Jakarta’s leading jazz jam session and colored up Jakarta jazz scene some years ago. They were in silence for three years, but now it’s back in action as PuriJazz. The first show was launched on September 5, 2012 and have been running as a regular event every Wednesday night ever since.
Back to the Puri Jazzy Christmas, this special Christmas edition West Beat (note the new name of the house band of West Jakarta’s only Jazznight) features the soulful lady with classic ‘old school’ jazz singing style Nesia Ardi and Steve Wilson on vocals, back up by nobody less than Sandy Winarta on drums, Doni Sundjoyo on bass and the host Stefan Thiele himself on piano. Guest star will be Ian Ingram from the UK, the trumpetist you might recognize from many ESQI:EF (Syaharani and the QueenFireworks)’s gigs that you have attended. This is a lovely formation that could give lots of joyful surprises to make your Christmas celebration merrier than ever.
If you still have no plan to go anywhere tomorrow night, why don’t you come to the Double Doors and have a jazzy Christmas celebration together? On behalf of the PuriJazz we invite you to this event. Have Yourself a Puri Jazzy Christmas… and celebrate at PuriJazz in Double Doors!
