Vienna Jazz Festival 2006 dates

Vienna is famous for classical music but I want to talk about the Vienna Jazz Festival from June 29 – July 16 2006. It’s not that I don’t like classical music (I’ve even seen the Vienna Boys Choir) – it’s just that jazz festivals are so much fun.

Some of the highlights of the 2006 Vienna Jazz Festival:

On June 29, the “Insen” project by Japan’s Ryuichi Sakamoto and the Berlin-based electronics musician Alva Noto.

On July 1, Chick Corea and his 30-member Chick Corea Chamber Orchestra participate in the “In the Spirit of Mozart” program. Chick Corea will premiere his Piano Concerto No. 2. He’ll also perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24.

On July 7, the Neville Brothers perform.

The wife and I had been thinking of a little trip to Japan, and summer is an expensive time to visit Europe but we may just reconsider…

And on a totally different note, what do you think of Elmer? He has blogged about Tokyo, Japan and traveling around the world so far. If you like his voice and think it’s a good addition to this blog, please let me know at Of course all feedback is welcome and you can also submit your vacation plans for the travel writing contest. If you’d like a weekly blog, we can discuss that as well. I invited Elmer to join me, because I thought this blog might be more interesting if there were a few different writers.
