Jazzing up Granada city

THE narrow streets of Granada are set to be filled with the sounds of the saxophone throughout November.

Each year Granada’s International Jazz Festival – one of the oldest and most important Jazz festivals in Europe – brings the finest international musicians to the city.

Some of the notable performers to enchant the crowds over in its 30 year history include Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, and Dizzy Gillespie.

And with an exciting programme of events lined up for this year, Granada – the only Spanish city to be a member of the European Jazz Network – is the perfect setting to sit back, relax, and take in some Sketches of Spain.
