The ‘Jazzification’ series enters its fifth season at the Tata Theatre, NCPA. This year, ‘Jazz Goes Retro’ will feature the most popular hits of all time featuring the tunes of Michael Jackson, Elton John, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, amongst many others.

In its endeavour to promote jazz and appeal to wider audiences, the NCPA has commissioned renowned musician and flautist Rajeev Raja to create a series of concerts showcasing typical jazz elements in a format that has an easy frame of reference for audiences. Thus was born the idea of ‘Jazzification’ which features popular and well known melodies of yesteryears interpreted in the style and expression of the jazz genre.

Over the years, sold-out concerts included the inaugural ‘Jazzification’ performance in which classic rock tunes were jazzified. The second season included the ‘Beatles Jazzified’ concert in which the timeless melodies of the world’s most popular band were featured. ‘Jazz Goes to the Movies’ was the theme of the third season, with hits from Hollywood movies scores being the focus. In the fourth season, the audience was transported to new heights at the ‘Jazz Goes Broadway’ concert. The concerts invariably end with a standing ovation and the unforgettable experiences of hearing familiar tunes arranged in a whole new way. So, roll in and jazzify your soul.
