Jazz in Liege is driven by the same principle of offering Jazz for Everybody, for all tastes. This year, too, the festival organisers have drawn up a long list featuring distinguished members of the contemporary jazz scene: just as jazz adopts an inclusive approach toward style, contemporary jazz tends to reflect all styles, or almost all styles. And therein lies the secret to what makes this unique festival such a challenge and so innovative. The aim is to allow seasoned experts, budding jazz fans and enthusiasts eager to become acquainted with jazz to get a taste of a variety of music served up with bluesy spices. All within the space of two evenings.
