Jazz and blues thrive brilliantly in the world's capital city of music and there are so many small clubs with exquisite acts. Once a year, the scene celebrates the ViennaJazzFloor festival, to which it invites internationally renowned jazz players to perform in nine of the city's clubs, including Jazzland, Davis, and Miles Smiles.
The Austrian and international greats of the scene present themselves at the more than 100 concerts. The spectrum ranges from jazz to related genres such as blues, funk and soul.
Legends and shooting stars
One of the highlights of the ViennaJazzFloor 2016 is without doubt the appearance of the legendary Billy Cobham at the Reigen on 11 November. No less fantastic: The American jazz quartet Oregon at the Sargfabrik (24 November). The Dutch band Nikitov will also perform there with the impressive singer Niki Jacobs (17 November, photo).
The Dusco Goykovich Quartet makes a guest appearance at Jazzland from 17 to 19 November. The jazz café Miles Smiles celebrates its 35th anniversary. An "Arabian Autumn" is on the program there on four evenings, with the Austrian accordion player Otto Lechner and the Moroccan Kadero Rai.
The line-up continues in this way evening after evening for the whole of November - a festival for fans of live music.
