Leipzig Jazz Days
From: Wednesday, October 3 2007, 1:00 pm
to: Saturday, October 6 2007, 6:00 pm
The Leipzig Jazz Days bring together artists from many genres in a festival that mirrors the diversity of the jazz scene. Concerts take place in a number of venues in the town, with the main concerts staged at the Leipzig Opera.
The festival mixes up-and-coming musicians with big names and the eclectic programme underpins the intention of the organisers to feature a range of musical styles and to give an insight into recent developments in jazz. It is a meeting point for musicians from eastern and western Europe and beyond, and always produces exciting and innovative performances.
Highlights of the festival line-up for 2005 include The Dave Holland Quintet, The Tomasz Stanko Quartet, The Branford Marsalis Quartet and the best of the Polish jazz scene.
