At JIM (Jazz in Marciac) festival, we’re so chilled out we’re horizontal (of course, that may be the heat and the wine but one can’t be sure.)
The godfather of the festival, the trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, was pure class. Playing with his quintet: Walter Blanding (saxophone), Carlos Henriquez (bass), Ali Jackson (drums) and Dan Nimmer (piano), this was the first of his two appearances at the festival. He has played every year at JIM since 1991 and there’s even a statue of him in the village. Here’s his Marciac Suite album.
