Barcelona International Jazz Festival
From: Saturday, October 13 2007, 1:30 pm
to: Sunday, December 9 2007, 5:30 pm
The Barcelona International Jazz Festival is one of Europe's longest-running and most well-respected events. It takes place in the autumn, a perfect time to visit the city as the summer heat has subsided and there are less tourists. The music comes in a wide variety of styles, from big bands and bebop to gospel and Latin jazz, consistently attracting a great line-up of international performers.
This year's highlights include Jamie Cullum, Madeleine Peyroux, the Big Band de Badalona, the Kyle Eastwood Band and the Christian McBride Quartet. In addition to the numerous concerts, there are a handful of workshops and masterclasses.
