Once again, jazz is given pride of place in Paris for the edition 2019 of the Festival Jazz à la Villette taking place from Thursday August 29 to Tuesday September 10! The lineup? Marcus Miller, Lee Fields & The Expressions and even Guillaume Perret.
Every year, this is the event jazz amateurs and fans impatiently expect; I’m obviously talking about the Festival Jazz à La Villette.
From Thursday August 29 to Tuesday September 10, 2019 jazz artists will go up on different stages at La Villette such as at the Grande Halle de La Villette or the Philharmonie de Paris to amaze you and surprise you with a resolutely modern and contemporary music style.
For over 10 days, jazz will be king in different shapes and sizes and will invite many guests whose names will drop very soon.
For the record, last year, the festival invited artists as talented as Janelle Monae, Avishai Cohen, Salif Keita, Gogo Penguin and even Selah Sue.
The Parisian audience even attended the creation of a concerto for piano by Brad Mahlday with the Orchestre national d’Ile-de-France and a tribute to Bill Withers by soul man José James.
This year, the Festival Jazz à la Villette will deploy once again a whole jazz range and cross genres for a panorama targeting an always changing music thanks to an exceptional lineup. This year then? Marcus Miller, Lee Fields & The Expressions and even Guillaume Perret.
