The program is as unique as the artists themselves - modern and classic, young or older, powerful and calm, lively and relaxed. The musicians travel from all over the world to inspire Trier and its visitors with their multifaceted jazz sounds. In addition to the individual concerts on six Thursdays in July and August, there is also the traditional "regional evening" where an established jazz ensemble from the Trier region or the surrounding area can prove itself.

We’re looking forward to having her here and welcoming her to enjoy the finest of jazz music with us in the splendid ambience of our Brunnenhof!

Trilok Gurtu / Florian Weber / Frederik Köster - 07/15/2021
At the beginning of the concert series there is a trio on stage whose members are not only known in the world of jazz, but are also masters of their instruments: the drummer Trikol Gurtu, known for his precision and cosmopolitan music, stands with the celebrated jazz pianist Florian Weber and the award-winning trumpeter Frederik Köster on stage. The guests in the Brunnenhof can not only look forward to the virtuoso playing style of the three, but also to an insight into the diversity of jazz, when on this evening classical jazz mixes with funk, Indian influences as well as African and Brazilian musical traditions and the diverse Kidnapped the world of jazz.

Ida Nielsen & The Funkbots - 07/22/2021
As is well known, Trier as the former capital of the Imperium Romanum knows its way around emperors. Royal visit came in 2018 with the Dutch royal couple in front of the Porta Nigra. At the second concert of the “Jazz im Brunnenhof” series in 2021, a majestic wind is blowing through the city again. At least if you take it literally: Ida Nielsen was already on stage with “Prince”. Together with her band, she will play on Thursday, June 22nd, 2021 in the historic ambience of the Brunnenhof and will also let the great legacy of the pop legend resonate in her music. The Danish bassist experiments impressively with old-school funk, hip-hop and nusoul, with rhythm-laden party songs and soulful ballads that she composes and produces herself. The full range of jazz instruments is allowed on the wild ride, but without forgetting the strings that make them up: the rich and soft strings of their bass that pick up on Prince's great legacy. Trier can look forward to a majestic music evening.

Mayito Rivera & Sons of Cuba - 07/29/2021
Mario "Mayito" Rivera is one of the most important contemporary singers in Cuba. For over 20 years he was the face of the successful band Los Van Van, with whom he won the Grammy for best salsa album. Mayito Rivera left the group in 2011 and has since broken new ground in music with his band “Sons of Cuba”. There are six young top musicians, all of whom come from the Cuban homeland of the successful singer. So it is not surprising that her music, which now sounds in the shadow of the Porta Nigra, is characterized by perfect arrangements and rhythmic styles. Their sonorous mixture of modern salsa, rumba, afro and timbar rhythms as well as jazz and funk brings the Cuban attitude to life to Trier.

Markus Burger Trio feat. Jan van Klewitz - 08/05/2021
Jazz sounds of a different kind: The Markus Burger Trio feat. Jan van Klewitz the audience in the Brunnenhof. The quartet casts a spell over the audience with their energetic playing style and powerful chords, but also sophisticated melodies and rhythms. The musicians Markus Burger (piano), Uwe Ecker (drums), Martin Gjakonovski (bass) and Jan von Klewitz (saxophone) have been working together since 1994 and inspire jazz lovers in Europe and Russia with their concerts. At “Jazz im Brunnenhof”, too, this year they show their rousing interaction and enchant with their unique jazz interpretations.

Sandra Klinkhammer and band - 08/12/2021
On August 12th, the motto is: sit back and just enjoy. Sandra Klinkhammer and her band are guests at “Jazz im Brunnenhof”. Her soulful, German songs are accompanied by a mixture of double bass, guitar, piano and drums, but sometimes also trombone and clarinet. Music that invites you to leave the world behind and listen. Singer and clarinetist Sandra Klinkhammer does not want to assign her sound adventures to a certain genre. She prefers to be inspired by role models such as John Mayer, Herbert Grönemeyer, Max Herre and other artists and conjures up her very own melodies and songs with her band. This catchy mix together with emotional German lyrics invites you to dream and bob along.

Regional evening: ’round Nils - 08/26/2021
The regional evening is one of the highlights of the “Jazz im Brunnenhof” series. As in 2020, it marks the end of the season this year. The band "'round Nils" with 7 musicians sets a final point that has it all. The band namesake Nils Thoma, saxophonist, composer and president of the Jazz Club Trier, has won long-term companions for his new band project the Trier jazz scene is indispensable. He is supported by trumpeter and arranger Helmut “Daisy” Becker, who has been active in various bands in and around Trier since 1981, and Andreas Haller, known for the bands “Haller Horns”, “Grundfunk”, “The Argosonic” and Funky Drummer of the formation "Black Porta Projekt", Frederik Noll.
