Jazz Voyeur Festival XII

Genre bending Jazz

The 2019 Jazz Voyeur Festival to be held in Palma in a couple of months promises to be another cracker with a wide ranging and diverse collection of artists coming from near but mostly far to entertain us. Styles range from classic to Flamenco to Celtic to Latin jazz and a great big dollop of funk to keep everyone happy.

So who can you see, when and where?

The fest kicks off with German singer and actress Ute Lemper – a frequent visitor to Mallorca – performing a show dedicated to the ultimate diva, Marlene Dietrich at the Trui Theatre on 27th October.

Next up is Kyle Eastwood, son of Clint, who's also performed in Mallorca before, will bring his quintet – bass, drums, piano, sax and trumpet – playing classics by Basie, Monk and Mingus. Trui Theatre 2nd November.

Third in line are The Yellowjackets, the US Jazz Fusion quartet who have been knocking out tunes on 22 albums since 1977. Es Gremi Theatre 13th November.

Now for some Funk, The Wooten Brothers band – yes, they really are brothers – who normally play in different combos with the likes of Bela Fleck and Steve Miller join up with one of the best bass players in the world, brother Victor Wooten at the Gremi on 16th November.

On 22nd November, the Trui hosts two big names from Spanish 'world' jazz; Javier Ruibal, the guitarist and singer from Cadiz and Galician band Luar Na Lubre delving into their Celtic roots.

The last concert of all, on 7th December at Palma Auditorium features the Spanish Flamenco Jazz pianist Chano Dominguez and singer Matirio (photo) pay tribute to Cuban composer Ignacio Villa with 'Bola de Nieve.'

Tickets for all concerts, with prices ranging between 25 and 45 euros, will be on sale next Monday, through the Mallorcatickets.com website.
