On July 20 the Trad Jazz Band ensemble will open the series of jazz summer evenings. The ensemble is a supporter of acoustic tradition in jazz or a harbinger of a new non-electronic movement.

A week later, on July 27 the audience will listen to a vivid program of 1/2 Orchestra – a Moscow music band consisting of brass, wind and percussion instruments and playing music at the confluence of styles: jazz, funk, hip-hop, and drum'n'bass. Musicians perform their own compositions aspiring to bring the sound of wind instruments closer to modern electronic music.

The concert program includes world famous musical compositions and hits by Luís Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and other famous jazz musicians. "Moscow Jazz" is a young group, but already very popular among jazz fans in Russia.

On August 10 the pianist, composer and arranger Dmitry Yakovlev and his quintet "In Time" will present a program of author's compositions, original versions of jazz standards, as well as jazz adaptations of famous classical music pieces. Jazz singer Valentina Neugodnikova will also perform I the concert on August 10.

On August 17 the series will be crowned with the retro jazz band "Real Jam", one of Moscow’s best jazz bands with its retro style created under the influence of musical jazz traditions of the first half of the 20th century. Three women vocalists and seven instrumentalists (percussions, contrabass, guitar, piano, saxophone, pipe and trombone) revive old jazz traditions and take the audience to a fine era of black-and-white cinema, big bands, and swing dance and vinyl records.
