Jazz Phenomenon Perpetuum Jazzile at the Paramount Center for the Arts

February 25, 2013

One thing about Bristol, we tend to be music connoisseurs. Bristolians like all types of music as long as it is good and done well. Walk around the music venues and festivals, and you’ll hear old time country, bluegrass, today’s country, old rock and roll, Celtic, jazz, hip hop, reggae, show tunes, classical, and pop all being played and enjoyed by huge crowds. Bristol is about to be witness to a group that has never performed in the region before and are here for one night one performance only. The XL vocal group Perpetuum Jazzile is currently the biggest Slovenian pop and jazz vocal ensemble. The performance is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 7:00 PM in the historic Paramount Center for the Arts.

The repertoire offers an attractive selection of vocal jazz and pop, Brazilian bossa nova, gospel, close harmony style and funk and is mostly sung a cappella, yet sometimes also accompanied by remarkable jazz instrumentalists. The listener is given an alluring combination of vocal jazz harmonies and extraordinary rhythms, touched with spectacular soloists, ease and glowing youth. “We are most privileged to have such an amazing group come to Bristol. When our staff heard them, we couldn’t believe what we heard. The harmony, the jazz sound, it was just extraordinary,” said Darlene Cole from her Viking Hall office, hours after confirming the group’s March date. “We have worked with their U.S. management company for almost two years trying to set the date in their U.S. tour schedule and finally it came together. We are so excited.”
