The sound of jazz

Like jazz? Forget New Orleans, come to Barcelona. This month the city will celebrate the 40 Voll-Damm Barcelona Jazz Festival.

There will be 41 days with the best european jazz groups and soloists like Porgy and Bess, the Herbie Hancock quintet, Marc Copland, the Nicholas Payton quintet, the Ingrid Jensen quartet, the Matthew Herbert big band, Brad Mehldau - the Joshua Redman duet, and many others.

There will be venues for all tastes: beautiful and fun bars like the Harlem Jazz Club or the Zac Jazz Club; large halls like the Paulau de la Musica Catalana or L'Auditori; theatres like Teatre Zorrilla; open spaces like Parc Central del Poblenou.

Night, day, family outings, jazz is for everybody, just like Barcelona.
