Jazz à Juan - Juan Les Pins jazz festival 2015

The Riviera Times has reported that  "One of Europe’s oldest and most stylish jazz festival will once again return to Antibes and Juan les Pins in 2015. Four of jazz’s stars have been announced for the event with organisers promising many more surprise additions before the festival begins on 10th July.
One of the main acts for this year will be the American jazz pianist Tigran Hamasayan.

The artist is known throughout the world as someone who mixes different influences to create his music. His Armenian roots play an important role however he also fuses elements of traditional Asian music during performances. Also performing is the New-York based Israeli jazz musician Avishai Cohen. Cohen continuously searches for ways to bend the boundaries between the different genres of jazz and was the long-time protégé of Chick Corea
One of the true veterans of the Jazz a Juan festival is Marcus Miller who returns year after year to delight the audiences. In 2009, Miller performed with Staley Clarke and Victor Wooten and returned the following year to play with the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra. All in all, Miller has been providing exciting, musical surprises since his debut at the festival in 1996.
Carlos Santana is another famous name who will be performing at the 55th anniversary of the Jazz à Juan festival. The Mexican and American musician has been exciting fans for decades and will be playing some of his classic music as well as some new sounds for the event in July.
The festival will begin on 10th July and continue until 19th."
