Jazz for the planet

We are happy to show a concert recorded by Tällberg Foundation with a stellar line-up including Joe Lovano. Watch and enjoy.

Jazz defies convention through adaptability and improvisation, generating that special
sense of surprise and melodic invention that is similar to what we urgently need to
bend the dramatic arc of climate change. These amazing, world class artists are
dedicating their talents to help shape a message of hope towards a sustainable future
for humanity and our planet through their music,” said Fiorenzo Omenetto, who
conceived and is leading the initiative for the Tällberg Foundation.
Omenetto added, “Climate change” isn’t really about climate. It’s about people,
migration, food, water, access, health, education, and fairness of opportunity. It’s
about our world as we know it, and our social fabric as we live it. And if we don’t fix
our climate now, there will be too much to fix”.
Boston’s GBH, one of America’s most recognizable media brands, which operates in
television, radio, and online streaming and creates a vast array of cultural and news
content, is a core partner in this initiative. Additional support is provided by Mori
whose mission is the reduction of food waste with sustainable materials. The Stavros
Niarchos Foundation (SNF), one of the world’s leading private, international
philanthropic organizations, is the Tällberg Foundation’s lead supporter.
