This is the 20th anniversary of the Heineken Canarias Jazz Festival

with a wonderful line up of musicians from USA & other parts of the globe.

So far there is no programme of events & if like last year most of the concerts were free of charge taking place in Plaza Europa Puerto de la Cruz & outside Auditorio de Santa Cruz.
A couple of the concerts took place inside the Auditorio de Santa Cruz but tickets were a modest €10 - €25
Tickets were sold on generalticket.com but so far there are no details.

This is the website, Image will open up if you click on it.

Thank you for sharing that Jim, I have never heard of John Pizzarelli but will certainly buy a CD or two, I thought he was brilliant, Lee Ritenour and Dave Grusin were on the same bill in Santa Cruz two top U.S. jazzmen both favourites of mine.
