17 Days Of International Jazz Festival To Embrace Denmark In February
The Winter Jazz Festival (or in Danish: Vinterjazz) is set to sweep all over Denmark for the 13th time on February 1-17. Vinterjazz is once more pushing its boundaries further with a record breaking number of concerts totaling approximately 300 concerts all over Denmark.

This festival was founded by the Danish jazz association JazzDanmark in 2001 and is a unique celebration of live jazz and an annual kick start of the jazz season. Not only is this a nationwide festival with high quality jazz, Danish as well as international stars: It also brings together more than 60 venues ranging from local organizers, experimental labels, re-known jazz clubs to the concert halls of the like of The Royal Library, Jazzhouse, The National Art Gallery and The Royal Play House in Copenhagen. Vinterjazz is organized by Copenhagen Jazz Festival.
This year’s program features a number of international jazz meetings: Polish superstar pianist Leszek Moždžer teams up with Swedish bassist Lars Danielsson for two concerts, Marc Johnson
(NO), while Reuben Rogers and Greg Hutchinson is playing with their new setting feat. Tomas Franck (US/SE/DK).
Transcending the core of modern jazz this edition of Vinterjazz also draws lines to folk, world, electronic, rock and classical music. Electronic jazz outfit Get The Blessing (UK) features members of Portishead, Becca Stevens
