International Jazz Festival in Israel

Thursday, 18 June 2009

Caesarea, the ancient Herodian port on the Mediterranean coast. Every summer, the amphitheatre at Caesarea comes to life once again with concerts of a huge range of artists from Israeli classics to modern international acts.

Every summer, the port also hosts a jazz festival. This takes place not in the amphitheatre but along the promenade and attracts people from across Israel.

This years festival features world-class jazz troupes, including the Four Saxophones Octet, the Harry Allen Quartet, the International Swing Quintet with clarinetist Antti Sarpila and the Chris Barber Jazz and Blues Big Band, as well as Israeli jazz group, Swing de Gitanes, who will recreate the sound of Django Reinhardt’s Hot Club de France Quintet every evening on the harbor promenade.

The festival started today, and runs tomorrow and Saturday, at 6:30pm at the Caesarea Harbor Promenade.
