Jazz-Club

King Georg in Cologne, Germany’s first digital straight-ahead Jazz Club, was always one of the finest to offer live music. But recently the club has reinvented itself as a pioneer in the space of live digital music in Germany, and wider Europe, with several concerts per week distributed via live stream over the internet. They range from world-famous acts like the New York Emmet Cohen Trio to Young Talents, a series of concerts for up-and-coming artists, which offers young musicians not only a stage but also financial support in these difficult times. Overseeing the musical program is Martin Sasse, who is counted as one of the most exceptional pianists Germany has to offer, and who can often be heard at the Steinway grand piano that stands on the stage at King Georg. A high-fidelity live concert experience brought to your living room is guaranteed by our production team, who have at their disposal the finest standard of live streaming technology found in Germany. There are dozens of concerts in the archives of our club, for which a subscription can be ordered at a small fee.

Whether traditional or innovative, modern classics or avant-garde, jazz as such is an exciting exchange between musicians and a never-ending inspiration for the listeners. And on top of that, jazz as a worldwide sound provides an important and stimulating dialogue of cultures. At its center, there is always a tone of mutual respect. Numerous series at KING GEORG express the huge range of creativity in straight-ahead jazz and the accompanying awareness of life: ‘female jazz’ emphasizes the role of female performers, who in the past were often reduced to the role of the singer. “Young talents” blow the winds of change through the recently renovated interior of the club.

The house band of highly qualified musicians showcases their talents at King Georg’s All Stars evenings, whereas legendary Jazz heroes contribute to the international flair. An important part of our program is the King Georg sessions – a monthly jam session conducted by WDR Big Band trumpeter Andy Haderer.

All of us just wish that our guests agree with comedian Helge Schneider who said: Jazz makes you happy! I hope you all agree.

Let’s go! Let’s swing – at the King!
