Jazz in Lithuania

Updated on August 30, 2012

In 1988 I went to Lithuania for the first time where I attended the first Vilnius Jazz Festival. I went there with a band who performed at this festival. It was a great experience, I fell in love with Lithuania, a country still under Soviet occupation at that time. I went back to Lithuania again and again, I made a lot of friends there, and in 1998 I decided to live there. During that time I wrote this article about Jazz in Lithuania, which was published in several magazines around the world.

      I have listened to all types of jazz music and am a collector. I did not know about Dutch Jazz and some serious Spannish Guitarists from Spain. I an glad to hear about jazz in Lithuania. I will track down all the artists you have mentioned above. I also have people from Lithuania listen to my Internet radio station called FASTTRACKS found on It will be fun if you checked it out and hung around to make out the depth and dearth of music played there. I have learned something and am going to collect these artists you mentioned in your hub. Great stuff!

      A most informative piece. I'm with TonyMac; it's always interesting to hear about jazz in other countries. I'm going to check out your reference to Youtube. Thank you.

      Thanks for this very interesting Hub. I am always fascinated to hear about jazz in other, unusual, places. Some years ago I met some jazz musicians from Finland and have their CD which is great. Also of course Polish jazz - there are some great musicians there, including Tomasz Stanko. I would love to hear some of these Lithuanian players.

      Love and peace
