All that jazz

jazzfestThe Malta Jazz Festival will this year be held between the 17 and the 19th of July, 2014. Since its inception 22 years, it has ago attracted true, international greats of the jazz scene to Malta.  Past performers include Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, Mike Stern, John Scofield, Diana Krall, Brecker Brothers, Michel Petrucciani, Al di Meola, Tuck & Patti, Herbie Hancock, Joao Bosco, Yellowjackets, Michel Camilo and Wayne Shorter, and the Brad Mehldau Trio.

 

The festival has over the years created an impact on the local cultural scene.  The 2009 edition, which saw the event return to its pure jazz roots and original location at historic Ta’ Liesse wharf, Grand Harbour, was one of the most successful. The magnificent setting alone makes Malta Jazz a uniquely memorable event for audience and musicians alike.

 

The Artistic Director is Sandro Zerafa, a Paris-based Maltese jazz musician, who took over in 2009 from the event’s originator and fellow musician Charles ‘City’ Gatt, who set up the first festival in 1990.
