the content

Founded by Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, two German-Jewish emigrants in New York in 1939, the jazz label, which was named after the famous Blue Note of swing, jazz and blues, quickly gained significant importance. This is because the crème de la crème of jazz musicians were all over the recording studios. Experience the greatest hits of "hot jazz" and "boogie-woogie". Speeches between the various songs and standards will introduce you to the players, the era and the musicians.


“Since jazz is one of the most intriguing languages out there, it’s natural to want to combine it with texts and poetry.”

In its new series of jazz events in the Tischlerei the Big Band of the Deutsche Oper Berlin presents six themed concerts featuring smaller formations of the Big Band and guests. The concerts focus on a particular subject or composer, amalgamating music and poetry. Texts, biographical information, poetry and background information on the evening’s unifying theme combine to produce a unique experience for the audience.
