Six years have been enough so that the Festival JAS, Jazz Antic of Sitges, has become one of the events of reference in the tight cultural calendar of our city. Not only has it been confirmed its continuity, in an edition that will feature seventy musicians, but we have seen it sow seeds that begin to bear fruit.
During the four days that the city will be filled with the best of jazz rhythms, Dixieland and Swing, we can see, indeed, how the commitment to the local talent of the organizers of the contest is full of sense when some Sitgesian musicians who have grown to The JAS shadow participates in jam sessions, concerts or on Saturday afternoon parade.
In a contest in which the local quarry and international values come together, one of the attractions of this edition is La Locomotora Negra, an historic group of traditional jazz of Catalonia that, surely, will give the finishing touches to the JAS . We have to celebrate that they are there, for a reputation that will also be taking place in Sitges this year’s guests like the Potato Head Jazz Band, from the south of the peninsula; the trio of the French guitarist Adrien Moignard, and especially the internationally renowned English clarinetist Pete Allen.
If you are one of those who have not yet discovered the charm of the Sitges Old Jazz, I invite you to come and enjoy yourself. The JAS is an obvious proof that ours is a town with its own denomination of origin, capable of generating special events in which the stars that come from beyond with the values of our house are merged with harmony.
