Since 1986, the small town of Sant'Anna Arresi on the large island of Sardinia off the western coast of Italy has been home to the festival Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz (On the Border Between Sardinia and Jazz), presenting an array of International innovative jazz artists. The September 2016 edition was no exception, when 20 performances occurred over a 10-day period featuring musicians from numerous countries, including many noted New York and Chicago players. The amphitheater-style venue, Piazza del Nuraghe, is situated on the grounds of a historic nuraghe, a surviving stone dwelling that housed the original island inhabitants whose civilization lasted from the 18th century B.C. to the 2nd century A.D. When one can enjoy a musical holiday that offers exciting improvised jazz combined with white sandy beaches, fabulous food, fantastic wine, historical significance, gracious hosts, and a thoroughly delightful ambiance, it makes for an unforgettable experience.
