Top jazz in Dortmund

People of­ten for­get that for many dec­ades, Dortmund has been one of the great jazz centres in the coun­try. There are few cit­ies where the pas­sion for jazz began so early and where it has been sus­tained for so long as here, as the reg­u­lar In­ter­na­tion­al Jazz Days in Dortmund show. Between 1949 and 1962, there was the Hot Club Dortmund, which be­came an im­port­ant ven­ue for many young jazz mu­si­cians through­out the re­gion. It was fol­lowed in 1969 by dom­i­cil. Over its dec­ades of ex­ist­ence, this cel­lar ven­ue be­came one of the most im­port­ant jazz clubs in Ger­many. If you look at the ?dom­i­cil His­tory? on the web­site, you?ll get goose­bumps look­ing at the list of great artists who played here. The dom­i­cil also be­came a win­dow in which the Ruhr re­gion could ex­per­i­ence the jazz acts from Wup­per­tal, Co­logne or Ber­lin live on stage. A unique fea­ture is the mu­sic­al open­ness with which the op­er­at­ors of the club - which is now a pub­lic as­so­ci­ation - cre­ate the pro­gramme. Jazz, world mu­sic and av­ant-garde mu­sic form the fo­cus, and there are also pop and rock per­form­ances and read­ings. As long as the act is in­ter­est­ing, there are no blinkers here. In 2005, the dom­i­cil moved from the Leo­pold­strasse in the north­ern in­ner city to the city centre. The new dom­i­cil has two con­cert halls and is a fant­ast­ic ven­ue for mu­sic fans. The ex­perts are of the same opin­ion. The dom­i­cil has been se­lec­ted as one of the best ven­ues in the coun­try. The highly re­spec­ted US jazz magazine Down Beat reg­u­larly lists the dom­i­cil as one of the ?100 best jazz ven­ues world­wide?.
