«...an innovative competition»
(Hrayr Attarian - All About Jazz)
7 Virtual Jazz Club is a non-profit all volunteer association dedicated to the support of jazz music in all its forms.
Our goal is to promote, through a virtual platform, top quality jazz performances and to discover new talents.
«…a great opportunity to listen to musicians you won’t have other wise a chance to listen to»
(Dubi Lenz - Artistic Director of The Red Sea Jazz Festival)
In order to do so, we created a contest that takes place entirely online, which is spread all around the globe and is totally transparent. The Contest is the very first ever held: it is a unique musical competition for solo artists, bands, and singers of any age from all over the world.
«the videos submitted to the contest demonstrate the global reach of jazz, and are helping to shape the future of the music in rich and unexpected ways»
(Marcela Breton - Jazz Journalist Association)
The entries will be judged by a panel of international jazz industry experts.
