Caught Up In Jazz

Following last year Jazzin It Up success that gathered together all the jazz music lovers during the coldest month of the year, the same production team is extending another invitation for the second edition entitled Caught Up In Jazz.

This Jazz Concert which is being organized in collaboration with the five-start Grand Hotel Excelsior, will feature Malta leading jazz trumpeter Adrian Brincat more affectionately known as ir-Russu together with three other pioneers in the Jazz music scene namely Lino Cauchi on piano, Joe Bibi Camilleri on percussion and Simon Sammut on bass. Accompanying them for the night are two voices connected to the local Jazz and Blues music scene Daniel Cauchi and Petra Zammit.

This year edition is taking place on Saturday, 3 March 2012 at 20.00 hours in the renowned Ballroom Suite of the Grand Hotel Excelsior in Floriana.
