Gourmands are anxiously awaiting the Ri Gastro Days in October/November, which offer innovative menus in honour of squid.

The native coastal populace usually hunts for squid during autumn and winter, when they are scarce in number, but are also larger and more succulent than those that are caught in the summer. Also, fresh squid is very healthy since it is rich in high-quality proteins, fats, and other valuable micronutrients. Squid are a mainstay of Mediterranean cuisine and can be prepared in numerous different ways – raw, grilled, sautéed, or fried. You can even stuff them, which is made easier by their unique shape.

If you want to see for yourself what creative ways chefs have utilised the popular and beneficial squid, then visit one of the partner establishments of Ri Gastro. Check out the official website of Ri Gastro to find out who will be cooking and what tasty programmes are being offered during this gastronomic week. Bon appétit!

Festival Jazz.hr

The 27th anniversary of Jazz.hr festival will take place from 18-21 October in the „Blagoje Bersa“ Concert Hall at the Academy of Music in Zagreb while presenting a series of prominent jazz musicians and bands. This festival already hosted many jazz stars such as Maria Schneider, Vienna Art Orchestra, Miroslav Vitous, James Carter, Charles Lloyd, Monty Alexander, James Morrison, Jon Faddis, New York Voices, Jean Luc Ponty, Richard Bona, Michel Camilo, Charles Tolliver, Randy Brecker, Vijay Iyer and Lee Konitz. The organizer, Croatian Composers’ Society insists on their concept of promoting of the current Croatian and European jazz scene.

The unconventional septet of Austrian musicians Shake Stew that consists of interesting improvisers and personalities of the new European jazz scene will be the opening the festival. They are currently promoting their new album „The Golden Fang“ which is based on the rich sound, a wide range of musical ideas and influences that include various forms of art.

Polish Tomas Chyla Quintet, counting the best young Polish musicians who have collaborated with famous artists, redefines mainstream jazz by giving it an honest and romantic air. The audience in Zagreb will be able to hear their songs from the album „Eternal Entropy“, published this year.

This year's edition of Elvis Stanić project Jazz Ex Tempore will be exploring the sounds of „Northern Silence“. Musicians with two completely different, but in some segments very similar musical traditions, will tell and exchange their stories in order to create entirely new music on the spot and on the trail of the best traditions of both worlds. The musicians are connected through the common language of jazz, used by all, differing in accent.

Eric Reed Trio's performance will be the closing the festival. During his career, Reed has collaborated with renowned jazz musicians such as Wynton Marsalis, Clark Terry, Elvin Jones, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Ron Carter, Christian McBride, Dianne Reeves and Cassandra Wilson. He recorded approximately 30 albums with his own and other bands. Reed also works as a composer and writes music for the film industry. As is his music for the comedy “Life” with Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence.

The Jazz Ex Tempore is an intercultural and educational project which deals with traditional music heritage.

The starting point is the search for similarities and differences in traditional music expression that later merge into modern jazz music, with key idea being the one on preservation of cultural heritage and cultural identity.

Jazz Ex Tempore is a meeting of the significant artists from several countries which compose, rehearse and play along the new and original repertoire during a one-week event. Each of them brings their own traditional music idioms and original compositions, that are going to be explored together, interactively rearranged, rehearsed, and performed at the end of the meeting.

This year's edition of the Jazz Ex Tempore project explores sounds of the "Northern Silence" - it deals and compares a Croatian and Norwegian music tradition, interpreted by the language of Jazz.

Musicisans from two completely different (even in some segments also very similar) music tradition, will tell their story, share it together and will create a new music, on the spot - combining the best from both worlds.

The connecting factor is a common language, the language of the jazz - which they all speak fluently, everyone with their own accent - creating a colorful difference in a common expression and creation of the new music.
