The Südtirol Jazzfestival hops across the Pyrenees and dives headfirst in exciting soundscapes. Already back in the 60s, English musician and jazz critic Leonard Feather once famously said that Spain is ‘a desert for jazz.’ Fast-forward to our times and you’ll see how the colourful Spanish scene is influenced by international contemporary jazz as well as flamenco, pop and rock, north African ethnical music, and folklore music from Catalonia or the Basque Country.
Take a plunge further east and land on the shores of Portugal where the Hot Clube de Portugal – one of Europe’s first jazz clubs – opened in Lisbon in 1948, a legendary institution which is still alive and kicking to this very day.
