01 July – A Night of Original Jazz
An energetic jazz concert with the award-winning pianist Tigran Hamasyan awaits you as part of the Istanbul Jazz Festival. Moved by the sounds of Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker and Miles Davis, young Hamasyan joined the Yerevan Jazz Festival in 2000. In just a few years he would go on to win a number of contests, one of which was at the 2003 Montreux Jazz Festival. Frequently likened to indie-rock musicians for his stage energy, Tigran Hamasyan will be accompanied by Sam Minaie on bass and Arthur Hnatek on drums in this concert at 7 p.m. at Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall.
