Barcelona Jazz Festival
The jazz club is just as you would expect dimly lit, smoky and elbow to elbow. But as the musicians start up you know why you are here, frantic and frenetic rhythms mixed with jangly guitar and saxophone.
This could be any jazz club in Barcelona like the Harlem Jazz Club, an off the beaten track place famous for its jam sessions, or the Jamboree, just off La Rambla and twice as cool. The Barcelona Jazz festival has gigs in venues large and small with all sorts of acts playing like influential jazz drummer Jack DeJohnette, clarinettist Don Byron and singer Andrea Motis.
