Friends, welcome to the official site of Baku jazz festivals that started here since 2005. Here and only here you can get the most complete information about participating musicians and time of their performance.

The new Baku International Jazz Festival 2007 will be held from June 7 to 14 and will be incredibly intensive - thus, the most difficult will be to choose between groups and musicians participating in the Festival.

Schedule

Intensity of the program of Baku International Jazz Festival 2007 exceeded the previous two Festivals: for the first time the program of the Festival includes 11 groups and musicians coming to Baku from abroad and their performances will be packed into 6 working days of the Festival. And there is one more factor that differs this Festival from the previous one: the last year accent was made on star names, but this year even groups unknown to Bakunians include very much callable musicians. Besides, for the first time musicians from ex-social countries - Hungary and Poland - will take part in the Festival. A special attention shall be paid to performance of Bakunian who presently lives in USA, graduate of famous Berkley jazz college - Zulfugar Baghirov with his group ZJAZZ. Also, Volcano (USA) group is very much interesting.
And naturally, the most attention of Bakunians will be paid to concerts of a great drummer Billy Cobham, funk guitarist Hiram Bullock, vocalist from Holland Denise Jannah and impatiently expected by all Bakunians daughter of the great Vagif - Aziza...>>>
