Super-Sonic Jazz started out in 2016 as a series of events, shows, and club nights at Paradiso Amsterdam, providing the contemporary Dutch jazz scene a platform. Shortly after the success of the events and the realization that there is a new generation of jazz fanatics on the rise, a label followed.
The label bridges gaps between classic and modern scenes by re-releasing long lost gems alongside releases from some of the scene’s newest, underground talents. Super-Sonic Jazz pushes the envelope on what jazz culture means to both listeners, lovers, and artists. With a fertile musical ecosystem, talented musicians can grow and reach their potential, while audiences feel more engaged with the scene. With experimental programming mixing traditional jazz with contemporary genres such as hip hop, neo-soul, r&b, and electronic music during the annual six-day festival, year-round events, and the label’s focus on the local scene, Super-Sonic Jazz aspires to maintain its status as the prolific hub for jazz lovers and musicians in the Netherlands and beyond.
The events are hosted in close collaboration with the city council. All of the public health and safety guidelines set by the government are taken into account. We kindly want to ask everyone to follow the guidelines and respect the rules that have been set by the participating venues. Read all about this here. We do not encourage (global) travel to Amsterdam.
This event is cancelled.
