Posted on November 4th, 2009 by Samar Kai

The Jazz Lounge in Achrafieh presents on the stage of «Olympia» in Kaslik on 5 and 6 November 2009 a Jazz concert, during which the real and original jazz will be played by Ziad Rahbani along with Charles Davis and other 10 musicians. The concert will feature for the first time, special music compositions written in the 80’s by Ziad Rahbani and which has not see the light before. Tickets for Ziad Rahbani concert range from $ 75, $ 100 and $ 125

They all came from several countries to pay tribute to jazz: Charles Davis, Ziad Rahbani on the piano, Avo Tutunjian, Nidal Abou Samra and Bassil Rajoub on the saxophone, Amadis Dunkel on the trombone, Yervant Margaryan and Nizar Omran on the Trumpet, Amr Hammour on acoustic guitar, Samer Zgher on the drums and Andre Segone

Ziad Rahbani - Charles Davis

Charles Davis, speaking to the press gathered at the Olympia Theater said “Nine years ago, I met Ziad Rahbani and I admired his work, today and thanks to Avo Tutunjian, saxophonist, the contact was established again, and I am happy to be here”. Ziad Rahbani presents Charles Davis to the media by saying: He may not be an international player such as the notorious stars who are paid high to revive concerts in Lebanon and who spread of what might be called commercial jazz; but Charles Davis is a serious person who even in his home country is not known much since he is one of those who suffer from the absence of good production

Ziad Rahbani is known for spontaneous actions and the way he talks with no formalities, he commented on the tie he was wearing, he simply chose the red color because it goes well with the grey, and stated he will wear a dark blue tie in a concert at the American University in Beirut….however, we noticed that when he visited the Lebanese president with Charles Davis, he didn’t even wear a tie. Shoudn’t it be the other way around! Well….in short, this is Ziad Rahbani, as we have always known him
