Born and raised in Barbados, Elan Trotman started piano lessons at 7, picking up the saxophone five years later. Educated at the Berklee College Of Music in Boston, he has quickly become one of jazz’s most thrilling and emotive performers as he continues to stand out and push boundaries as a composer, performer, teacher and recording artist. Though inspired by Grover Washington, Jr., Kirk Whalum and Arturo Tappin, he approaches jazz in his own way with fresh ideas and distinctive tone and by blending Caribbean rhythms from his roots with skillful horn textures. The New England Urban Music Awards, and The Barbados Music Awards both named him Jazz Artist of The Year on multiple occasions. Trotman has recorded and performed with a number of world-class musicians, including Roberta Flack, Jonathan Butler, Keiko Matsui, Earl Klugh, Jeff Lorber, Peter White, Brian Simpson and many others. A huge sports fan, he has performed the National Anthem on numerous occasions for such teams as the Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks, Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Dodgers. In 2016, Elan also created a non-profit organization – the Never Lose Your Drive Foundation, which brings entertainment and sports celebrities together on the golf course to raise funds for educational programs on the island. As a recording artist, he has already been credited with 10-top 25 Billboard Radio singles from his own albums as well as from several collaborations.

Another year is coming to an end. Do you also feel like celebrating the old and the new properly? For our part: We are absolutely in the mood for a big event! That’s the reason why, for the second time, we are presenting our four days Soul-, Funk- and Jazz Party around New Year’s Eve. With the SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL AUGSBURG we bring as usual absolute top names, as well as outstanding young guns of the international Smooth Jazz Scene to Augsburg. Three festival evenings we celebrate in the stunning and evocative atmosphere of the Parktheater at Kurhaus Göggingen. The program includes two live concerts and an after-show party per day – on Thursday Shakatak and Jeannette Harris as well as on Friday Brian Bromberg and Oli Silk & JJ Sansaverino. The fantastic highlight at the Parktheater is the big New Year’s Eve: Euge Groove’s show is followed by a year-end countdown on stage and subsequent Allstar Jam.
Our partner location this year is again the “Dorint Hotel” at Wittelsbacher Park, which provides shuttle busses to the Parktheater on all festival evenings. The hotel itself does not only host the New Year’s Concert feat. singer Lindsey Webster and saxophonist Elan Trotman, which ends the festival smoothly, but also the gala dinner before the New Year’s Eve show. Together with the Dorint Team we have newly conceived the dinner. Be surprised!
The official sale for festival packages starts on September 1, 2016 in our online-shop: www.smoothjazzshop.eu/augsburg
