Country Jazz Festival

Some days ago I've assisted to a rare jazz concert right in my city, it has been great! I hope there will be more initiatives like this one in my country, there were at least 100 people including many strangers, but music was without doubt brillant, just as I thought. The concert lasted about four hours.

Relative music sounds: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Chick Corea, George Gershwin, Pat Metheny.
Artists of the event: U.S. Naval Forces Europe Band, E. A. Group, Simone Clarelli, jam session with various musicians.

Some latest listening: Autechre, Dead Can Dance "Anastasis", Swans "The Seer", Boards of Canada "Peel Session", Soen "Cognitive", Jarboe "Sacrifical Cake", Pelican "City of Echoes", Herbie Hancock, etc.
