Our good friend Yannick Ilunga from the Jazz Spotlight publishes a monthly guide to the coming jazz festivals around the globe. Starting this month Yannick’s guide will also be available on Jazz In Europe. Our deepest thanks to Yannick and the Jazz Spotlight, as always it’s a pleasure working with you.

This month, Australia celebrates jazz combined with good wine and delicious food. Wangaratta Jazz, which celebrates its 25th anniversary, MilduraGawler and Phillip Island Jazz Festivals, as well as Samoana Jazz and Art Festival and the Sydney International Women Jazz Festival. It’s going to be a month of amazing live jazz.

Top live jazz is going to be very much present in Spain as well, with the incredible lineups presented by various events like Jazz Albacete, Cartagena JazzMálaga JazzZaragoza andGranada Jazz, among other festivals.

The same can be said for France – D’Jazz NeversReims JazzJazz N KlezmerLes Nuits du Jazzand Jazz à Vian – and Italy, which will bring jazz stars such as Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dave Holland and Kenny Barron to the Italian capital, one of the country’s most culturally rich cities and Padova. Speaking of Europe, there’s going to be plenty of incredible festivals around the whole continent highlighted by the EFG London Jazz Festival.

European jazz will meet American jazz in Chicago, while the rest of the month will see some of the very best jazzmen and women performing all around the country, from Florida, New Jersey and New York all the way to Oahu, Hawaii.

Furthermore, jazz will also be played in Africa, from Nigeria – Lagos Jazz Series – all the way to South Africa (Cherry Jazz Festival), and by one of Japan’s landmarks: Mount Fuji. And let’s not forget Central and South America, with coloful jazz festivals taking place in the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Mexico’s Riviera Maya Jazz Festival!

With well over 60 jazz events organized around the world, November is a hot month for jazz enthusiasts – no doubt!
