The sixth and final concert in the 2007 JazzArt concert series put together by the JZ School featured Coco Zhao and his Possicobilities band yesterday afternoon at ifa village, a huge gallery at M50 on Moganshan lu. We thought the space, which is quite large and very concrete, would make the sound echo way too much; however, when it filled up with people it actually sounded pretty balanced. Only when the band got to their very loudest parts did it all sort of wash into each other and create a rumbling mass of sound. But that was kind of cool, too.
Unfortunately, we didn’t bring our camera, but another blogger posted their own set of pictures from the event as well, so you can check them out too.
We probably say this after every one of these concerts, but the JazzArt shows are always our favorite concerts in town. The vibe is always so nice in these great galleries to begin with, and then to have people show up who just want to listen to some excellent jazz on a Sunday afternoon makes it so special. Not to mention exceptional wine, and all for free! It all really conspires to create an atmosphere of utmost creativity for the musicians, so they really put their soul into it. It’s sad to know that they won’t continue every month, but at least next year will see the series start up again anew. It gives us something to look forward to next spring.
