Kick Jazz 2023

Believe it or not: December isn’t nearly as far off as you think it is. On the bright side, that means Kick Jazz is right around the corner! The annual showcase of local jazz talent at the Vienna institution Porgy & Bess will be, ahem, kicking off on December 5th and 6th.

Kick Jazz is a showcase of Austrian (and in one case, Slovenian/Norwegian) jazz talent presented by Austrian Music Export in cooperation with Vienna jazz mecca Porgy & Bess. The first evening, December 5th, will feature a selection of Vienna’s finest: the Anna Anderluh Trio, followed by the duo Preuschl / Valcic and Peter Rom’s Wanting Machine; the music continues on December 6th with a solo set by pianist Simon RaabotherMotherVIRA, and Candlelight Ficus. Both evenings begin at 8:30 p.m. sharp. We can’t imagine why you’d be anywhere besides Vienna on these two evenings – but in case you are, Porgy & Bess live-streams all its concerts, including these two.
