On 27 April 2022, the German Jazz Prize was awarded for the second time. Directly after the award event at the Metropol Theater Bremen, the big concert night for the German Jazz Prize took place, with Jazzrausch Bigband and Nubya Garcia, two nominated live acts on stage, as well as the award winners Sylvie Courvoisier and Fola Dada.

The singer Fola Dada from Stuttgart moves musically in a spectrum between big band jazz, neo soul and electronic pop music, while the jazz musician and composer Nubya Garcia from London takes the audience on a rousing sound journey with her saxophone. Other highlights of the concert night are the performances of New York-based pianist and composer Sylvie Courvoisier and the Jazzrausch Bigband from Munich, which formed in 2014 and has been artist in residence at the renowned techno club “Harry Klein” since the following year. Like no other, the ensemble manages to fuse big band sound with techno music and inspires the audience.
