Germans, including the folks in Düsseldorf, adore jazz. And some those that do become quite fanatical. Jazz musicians from across the globe thoroughly enjoy playing in front of enthusiastic audiences in the Rhine Ruhr region.
Several opportunities are on offer to enjoy local names and guest performances by musicians from farther afield. Localities in Düsseldorf possess long and strong traditions. Possibly the most renowned is “Dr Jazz” but the Jazz Schmiede and Em Pöötzke are too.
The styles of music packed under the label of jazz is quite extraordinary with most genres able to be heard somewhere, sometime. The annual Jazz Rally is unequalled in atmosphere and quality of national and international performers.
