Get ready, get set, Go! …Because if you don’t move it, you’ll be caught without tickets for the XXVII (yes, that’s the 27th edition – gosh have we been here that long?) of the the International Festival of Jazz on the Coast. Running from the 19th through to the 26th of July, in the unique setting of our very own Parque Majuelo, this is an event not to be missed!
To kick off the Festival on the Saturday, pianist Chano Dominguez will join forces with guitarist Niño Josele, promising a spectacular night of jazz and Flamenco fusion.
On the 20th, we’ll be delighted by the dulcet poetic tones of Dhaffer Youssef (who joins us from Tunisia, across the other side of our ‘pond’ AKA the Mediterranean), with Arabic blends and offerings from traditional Islamic music.
Monday 21st is when we get to understand why ‘Papa Americano’ is just so true when it comes to natural rhythm, jazz and the U.S.A. as we welcome (direct from San Francisco) Joshua Redman, Aaron Goldberg, Reuben Rogers and Gregory Hutchinson, to our southern shores.
Tuesday 22nd is where we turn our attention back to the Northern lights of Europe, specifically to pianist Tord Gustavsen from Norway, who already boasts 6 hit albums with prestigious label ECM, as well as numerous prizes.
Wednesday 23rd, the exciting sounds of Italian trumpet player Enrico Rava will delight us with a group of talented young musicians, to present his new project, ‘Tribe.’
Double bass guru, Dave Holland appears with his inimitable group of composers and musicians, including Kevin Eubanks, Craig Taborn and Eric Harland on Thursday 24th, promising a special evening indeed!
The latest diva in the European Jazz circuit, singer and composer Zara McFarlane, will grace the event on Friday 25th. Take a look at ‘If You Knew Her’ on ‘youtube’ to get a flavour of what’s in store!
Everything comes to a climax on Saturday evening with the talents of exceptional saxophonist, flautist and composer, Charles Lloyd, one of the living legends of jazz! A testimony to his 40 years in jazz, he is a reference point in the music industry, rivalling even the most adamant rock stars.
The only way to enjoy this truly special occasion, is to get moving and get your tickets, either on sale directly from the Tour/” rel=”nofollow”>www.jazzgranada.es
