Prague will host another famous jazz event - this time the 38th year of one of the oldest jazz festivals in Europe. Many phenomenal concerts can be seen in the Reduta Jazz Club, one of the top ten European jazz clubs and one of the oldest as well.

The audience will be pleased by the intimacy of the club and by the procession of stars, such as Lorenzo Thompson, called The Blues Man, or Walter Phishbacher, a marvelous pianist that will celebrate his birthday in the club. We are also looking forward to seeing Norwegian indie jazz singer Live Foyn Friis and Israeli multigenre guitarist Inbar Fridman. The Czech jazz devotees will be pleased to see the master of all wind instruments Jiří Stivín, or by the excellent trumpeter Jan Hasenhörl, who’ll play the tribute to Herbie Hancock. A highlight of the event will be one of the most famous Italian trumpeter, great Fabrizio Bosso.

Tickets are available online or in Reduta Jazz Club at Národní 116/20, Praha 1.
