This summer jazz fans are in luck in the Region of Valencia. Following on from a frenetic week in Peñíscola, with the International Jazz Festival, the show continues this week with two great events on offer. The XVII Festival de Jazz del Palau de la Música, taking place from 8 to 16 July, and Elx Jazz Festival, running all month until 27 July and entertaining locals and tourists with the best jazz in magical settings, such as Palacio de Altamira and Huerto del Cura.

This year's Elx Jazz Festival is running a packed programme of performances by world-famous artists like Janice Harrington and Chila Lynn, plus leading names from the Spanish scene such as Neus Ferri and Carolina Andrada. On 5, 13, 14, 19 and 27 July from 10.30 pm, the best musicians on the national and international jazz scene will be taking to the stage to play their latest sounds. They'll be performing against the unique and spectacular backdrop of Palacio de Altamira and Huerto del Cura.

 

 

Meanwhile, in Valencia, the XVII Festival de Jazz del Palau de la Música is once again scheduling performances in this attractive venue. Now in its seventeenth year, this popular festival continues to attract audiences keen to hear good jazz. Especially when they have the chance to see leading figures in the jazz world, such as Wynton Marsalis, Madeleine Peyroux, Chick Corea and Arturo Sandoval, plus other great musicians.

The Palau is on Paseo de la Alameda 30, next to the Turia riverbed park, and is the perfect setting for listening to fantastic jazz music, both in the concert halls and at the free open-air concert held every year in the surrounding gardens.

Maybe it's the originality, maybe it's the improvisation. But the fact is that jazz is full of surprises.
