European Jazz Party... err Festival

There is music too

Both on Thursday and Friday evening I passed by the 10th European Jazz Festival in Athens. I say "passed by", since in difference to the last years, I wasn't there for more than half an hour each time.

One reason was that both times the band currently playing wasn't playing on my bandwidth. I'm not too much into the experimental, modern kind of jazz. If you can't be too sure if what you're hearing is the actual performance or they're still sound checking their instruments, it's not too groovy for me. Possibly just tough luck, another time I might have hit on something great like in other years.

Apart from that, the festival is so much just a big party. Hey, it's free, it's summer, everybody is there. It does not leave me with the impression that people are there for the music. In fact, any music would probably do. I would not be surprised if someone brought a ghetto blaster. To put it short, an event to pass by from.

"If you can't be too sure if what you're hearing is the actual performance or they're still sound checking their instruments..." ROFL. I can see (and even hear) exactly what you mean. Such a good quote man.
