In the second grade my mother wouldn’t let me start to play the tambura because I had confused it with the tarambouka.

The teacher gave us a higher grade if we were in the brass band and we got in the cinema for free.

With more effective management Blagoevgrad can become a music centre.

* The tambura is a Balkan lute-like instrument while the tarambouka is a hand-held drum.

A real Hammond organ will sound in the “Zahary Knyazheski” Library Hall on May 26. Special guest is the pianist Oleg Chaly – one of the lead jazz musicians in Greece. Ventzi Blagoev – trumpet, Peter Momtchev – saxophone and Dimitar Dimitrov – drums, are the rest of the quartet, who will challenge the audience in Stara Zagora with mainstream, swing and blues. The concert is a gift to the most loyal jazz fans in the town, who rarely get the chance to listen to their favourite music. The international popularity of the jazzmen is a certain sign, that the audience will hear improvisations

DIXIE JOKERS – не  на шега! 

1994, май.

Почти на шега, непосредствено след завръщането си от обучение в  Линц, Георги Корназов събира в дома си в Горна баня първите сили на традиционния джаз у нас: Венци Благоев – тромпет, Христо Златинов – кларинет, заменен по-късно от Невилиян Гемижев, Александър Куманов (кръстник на бандата) – банджо, Пламен  Жечев – бас, Александър Цветков – ударни, и създават DIXIE JOKERS.
