After a hiatus of several years, Jazz à Tabarka, the festival established in 1973 by Mourad Mathari, ran again from July 22-29. As usual it featured a full program of pop, rock and jazz in the heart of Tunisia. On 28 July the festival featured legendary guitarist Stanley Jordan, who mesmerized the audience with his extraordinary technique by which he approaches the guitar as if it were a piano, tapping the strings rather than plucking them and giving the illusion that there are two or more guitars at play simultaneously. Enjoy.
I love jazz because transports me to another reality.
I was first exposed to jazz a concert on the lake many years ago.
I met many musicians at various international jazz festivals.
The best show I ever attended was Jazzascona in Suisse.
The first jazz record I bought was Miles Davis and John Coltrane.
My advice to new listeners is listen to music with an open mind.
Listen, think and share jazz everywhere.
