Malta Jazz Festival 2022 – July 11th – July 16th, 2022

“Considered by the international jazz community as a ‘true’ jazz festival and a beacon of artistic integrity, the Malta Jazz Festival presents a panorama of jazz music in all its facets. In a climate where jazz festivals increasingly water down their line-ups with non-jazz elements, the Malta Jazz Festival stands out as an event that achieves a perfect balance between the savant and more popular elements of jazz. This year we proudly present another eclectic line up featuring John Scofield « Yankee Go Home », Richard Bona & Alfredo Rodriguez sextet, Joel Ross « Good Vibes », Danny Grissett Trio, Francesco Ciniglio « The Locomotive Suite », YUSAN, Blue Tangerine, Daniele Cordisco quintet featuring Stjepko Gut and Gregory Hutchinson, Clark Tracey & Dominic Galea Legacy Quintet, and Warren Galea trio.”
