JAZZ, FUNK and soul legend George Benson was the stand out name, when the list of artists performing at the prestigious San Javier Jazz Festival this summer was announced.
The poster for the event, which lands on the shores of the Mar Menor between June 30 and July 29, was released last week along with the line-up of performers already confirmed.
Now in its 20th year, the San Javier Jazz Festival has cemented itself as the premier event of its kind in Spain, with a tradition of attracting top artists to their stages.
In addition to George Benson, other artists include Taj Mahal & Keb Mo, The Charles Lloyd Quartet, Ramsey Lewis and his Electric Band, Stacey Kent with saxophonist husband Jim Tomlinson, current top European Jazz Artist of the Year Jorge Pardo and Daniel Jobim, grandson of the samba king Antonio Carlos Jobim.
