After the jazzmen Milcho Leviev, Billy Cobham and Vicky Almazidou have raised the two-thousand-people audience in the Thessaloniki Open-air Theatre to their feet, we will be able to enjoy Milcho Leviev?s music in Plovdiv once again.  Two weeks ago an ethno-jazz festival in Thessaloniki gathered musicians from all over the world. There, after a break of 28 years, Milcho Leviev and the virtuoso jazzman Billy Cobham played on one stage again. The two musicians have three mutual albums released. There also performed another Bulgarian jazz musician ? the jazz singer Vicky Almazidou. All Bulgarian jazz fens will be able to see Billy Cobham in Plovdiv in the spring of next year.
But Milcho Leviev and Vicky Almazidou will perform for the Plovdiv jazz fens at their concert on October 4th (Saturday), at 7 pm, in the concert hall of the City Culture Centre. The entrance is free. The program of the festival includes:
Part One: Zhivko Petrov ? piano, Dimitar Semov ? percussions, Stavros Apsys ? bass.
Part Two: Vicky Almazidou ? vocal, Simeon Shterev ? flute, Milcho Leviev ? piano.
The sound synchronizing is supervised by the Bouditel KPD. The concert is organized with the kind cooperation of the Plovdiv Municipality and the Plovdiv Opera-and-Philharmonic Society.
