L'Hora del Jazz 2012The annual Catalan jazz-fest returns with a range of local groups playing including the Joan Vidal Sextet, who perform on September 20th at the Centre Cívic Can Deu
Barcelona is a city of jazz lovers and one of the leading annual events for afficionados of the genre is the L'Hora del Jazz festival, which returns this month for its 22nd edition. As ever, it focuses on home-grown talent, with jazz and modern music performers from around Cataluyna, new and established, taking part in the event that has concerts in both Barcelona and Vilafranca del Penedès.
A mix of daytime and night-time concerts is programmed, with the former focused on Plaça de la Vila de Gràcia; concerts there will take place on the three middle Sundays of the month (9th, 16th and 23rd). The night-time venues will this year expand to include the Milano Cocktail Bar, which hosts the final concert of the festival featuring Ignasi Terraza Trio (8:30pm, €8 including a drink)
