###Bird’s Nest
A jazz
Tonights line-up:
Amanda Sedgwick – alto sax, clarinet
Dwayne Clemons (New York) – trumpet
Alexander Brott – guitar
Björn Lundén, base
Mattias Puttonen, drums

This new sextet joined forces through their mutual love for modern jazz. The term ”bebop” has often been ill-fated, but this group puts exuberance back into this classic American style. Tunes by Tadd Dameron, Bud Powell, Arnett Cobb and Dizzy Gillespie are played in the three part harmony of the frontline, often in the original beautiful arrangements. Consisting of Amanda Sedgwick on alto sax and clarinet, Alexander Brott on guitar, Dwayne Clemons on trumpet, Carl Orrje on piano, Björn Lundén on bass and Mattias Puttonen on drums, this group has played at jazz clubs in Sweden, and also the occasional dance gig, disproving the fact that this music was constructed for the exclusive enjoyment of a concert audience.

Balboa

The term Balboa originally referred to a dance characterized by its close embrace and full body connection. It emphasizes rhythmic weight shifts and lead-follow partnership. Different dancers in the same region at the same time also danced “swing,” a dance characterized by twists, turns, and open-position movement. Over time, these two dances merged and became collectively known as Balboa. The original Balboa dance is now referred to as Pure Balboa, and the original “Swing” dance is now referred to as Bal-Swing or L.A. Swing to differentiate it from other types of swing. Because of its emphasis on subtlety and partnering rather than flashy tricks, Balboa (Pure Balboa in particular) is considered more of a “dancer’s dance” than a “spectator’s dance.”

LINDY HOP

SHAG

The Collegiate Shag (or “Shag”) is a partner dance done primarily to uptempo swing and pre-swing jazz music (185-200+ beats per minute). It belongs to the swing family of American vernacular dances that arose in the 1920s and 30s. It is believed that the dance originated within the African American community of the Carolinas in the 1920s, later spreading across the United States during the 1930s. The shag is still danced today by swing dance enthusiasts worldwide.
