Messe Basel

Thursday, 10 November

After a two-year pandemic break, the fabulous Baloise Session is back! At these concerts, you can listen to your favorite stars in an intimate and unique New York-style club setting with round tables, candlelight, and even a drink in hand. The Baloise Sessions are also unique in that all concerts are double headers, with two main performers who have something in common—be it a similar style, history, geographical background, or some other link or shared characteristic that is often surprising.
On this evening entitled “Grammy Jazz,” the artists of the two concerts will present two very different sides of the same music category—jazz. Gregory Porter represents the sensual and profound, while Snarky Puppy embodies pure energy and improvisation.
Both Gregory Porter, the giant with the black cap and the soft-yet-powerful voice, and Michael League with his power-troupe, call their music “jazz.” But while Porter plumbs the roots, gospel, and blues, Snarky Puppy play themselves into the future, flirting with funk and soul. Yet both uphold the jazz tradition, improvise their way through their repertoire, swinging and grooving, and never forget that jazz is also entertainment. The Grammys they both have received prove them right!
Tickets are CHF 90-130.
