What time is it?
The beautiful place called Switzerland. If you ever get a chance go there, please do me a favor and take the train. This place will take your breath away. With it's snow cap mountian's( The Alp's) it's one view that I think everyone should view at least one time in their life. Switzerland is truly a Beautiful place.
They have two major Jazz festivals. One is called the Estiva Festival http://www.estivaljazz.ch which is haled in Logano, Switzerland which is on the border of Italy. We refer to it as (Switaly). They hold the festival in the Piazza . Their are many shops to get you going in this town. Remember one thing....and that's Switzerland are famous for Watches so don't go over-broad when you see all that Switzerland has to offer. It's a great place to shop. Not only that it is next to Lake Como which is a beauty by itself.
If you are ever thinking about visiting Switzerland I hope that you go to Lugano it's only 90 km from Milan Malpensa airport
Now let's not forget about the Montreux Jazz festival. This is one of the most important festivals in Europe too. The Montreux Jazz festival has a long history with jazz also. Please visit their website at http://www.montreuxjazz.com and see for yourself. The festival starts on July 1st amd ends on the 16th of July. The line-up is alway's excellent!
This is a great festival also. It's the Willisau Jazz fest which takes place in the town of Mohren Willisau, Lucerne Valley. I can remember when this festival first started I was about 18 years old (WOW) That was about %$#* Years ago. Well anyway, The festival started out in a Barn house I can remember playing under the stage before the concert would start. When I think about it, it was the first festival for Willisau.(I must be getting old)
This Festival has come a long way from where it was and has made a name for itself as one of the better festival in Switzerland. The festival has a small town charm that makes it one of the better festivals. If you like how this sounds then by all means click on the link to see more. http://www.jazzwillisau.ch
