8th European Jazz Festival

28 May - 1 June 2008.. already underway

Another "calendar" type post: The 8th European Jazz Festival is already running here in Athens. Last evening this Sunday, concerts seem to start at 21:00 each night, they're in the "Technopolis" (Gazi). Here's a long description of what's going on at xpatathens-site and a short rundown at monsieurlu.

There's also a free downloadable album from Ειρήσθω εν Παρόδω (Iristho En Parodo), a Greek group performing at the event (thanx to monsieurlu for the tip). Just started to listen to it, and the fusion of Jazz and oriental sounds totally r0xx!

Greek Oriental Fusion Jazz

There probably isn't a Jazz festival anywhere with so many people and so little Jazz. Don't get
me wrong, the 8th European Jazz Festival is a wonderful event. I went there yesterday evening
with friends and I had a great time and listened to some very good Jazz. But the first thought
that formed in my head was: "All those people do not really have any interest in Jazz!"
