— As of March 2020 during the first COVID-19 lockdown, Ach’s Saturday Jazz at The Filmbar clubnight was closed, as were all the other nightclubs in Vienna. Today the clubs are still closed. The whole year might have gone by without any of the Saturday Jazz DJs bringing their brilliant selection of music to the Filmbar’s public. We can not let this happen! For a little bit of Filmbar Jazz to brighten the mood at home we’re bringing you a 12-hour mix for better times. —
