Dear fans of jazz and great music in general,
This festival season is again varied both in style and ethnic composition. We are pleased to host musicians from fourteen countries covering a variety of genres ranging from avant-garde to electronica. When putting together the line-up, we listened to your inspirations as well as keeping with our continuous search for other talents, sometimes hidden and at other times, obvious. Our philosophy is to represent not only jazz legends and superstars, but also, compelling and inspiring musicians, who have previously not performed enough or even at all in the Czech Republic. We have been thoroughly mapping both domestic and European scenes and we never neglect the wonderful community from the „Jazz Mecca“, New York.
