Good sound against November blues

Vienna Jazzfloor Festival - with good sound against the November blues

Vienna once more lives up to its name as a world capital of music. A few days ago I found in a newsletter of the Vienna Tourist Board an event that i have to tell you about.

Goodbye November Blues

In the last blogposts I have already shown you that Vienna has also in November a lot of charm, as with the museums and exciting exhibitions or just with a nice walk through the now calmer city and afterwards enjoying a fine tea or coffee to warm up.

Jazz sounds enrich the city

Today I add one more suggestion to those previous ones, as the whole November is filled with the sounds of jazz in Vienna. From 1.11 until 1.12 the Vienna Jazzfloor Festival takes place and the program is more than exquisite.

Vienna is well known as the world capital of music all over the world and so also for this genre many small, fine clubs and a "scene" have established. Once a year this is celebrated and top-class jazz musicians from all over the world give Vienna the honor and will entertain you.

Exquisite concerts and high-profile artists create mood

A total of 90 concerts in 9 Viennese clubs are waiting for you, that is really huge selection. What you can look forward to? For example, in Vienna's best-known and oldest club Jazzland a noble Briton, Dana Gillespie (12.11 to 14.11) or a combination of jazz and flamenco from Alfredo Garcia Navas (19.11).

Austrian artists are represented too like the jazz violinist Zipflo Weinrich with his band (13.11).

The full program can be found on the website of the Vienna Jazzfloor Festival.

No more gray in gray

So who might say now that Vienna in November is only gray in gray? A good sound, unique exhibitions in the museums, a good cup of coffee or tea in the world-famous Viennese coffee houses and a city that just came a bit to rest, before it soon goes on with the Christmas atmosphere.

But that I'll write about next week.
