Bologna is very proud of its long Jazz tradition: since 1958 some of the greatest jazz musicians have played within its Jazz Festival: Chet Baker, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Keith Jarrett, Miles Davis…
The Bologna Jazz Festival is the first International Jazz Festival. After a few years of interruption, it’s internal structure was redeveloped in 2006 and now it takes place every year. The Festival is held every year in November in some of the best theatres, clubs and restaurants in Bologna (and in the cities nearby).
Musicians such as Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Stefano Bollani, Dave Holland, Cassandra Wilson, Rachelle Ferrell, Sonny Rollins, Pat Metheny, the Manhattan Transfer have performed in the most recent editions of the festival.
