Jazzkaar 2017: What others write about us?

10. May 2017

Jazzkaar is delighted to have several foreign journalist writing about the festival and visit beautiful Tallinn and Estonia. Here are some of the reviews of the festival and overall feeling:


“Jazzkaar, a 10-day extravaganza in Tallinn, Estonia, is mostly set within the Telliskivi Creative City, a hub for the city’s artistic community. This is a converted industrial area, now mostly colonized by venues, galleries, bars and cafés, although a scattering of the old-school businesses still exists.”

“The range of programming at Jazzkaar was undoubtedly its finest feature. Whilst at a glance the festival schedule may have seemed daunting or inconsistent, this variety and juxtaposition of performances is ultimately what jazz is all about: yoking together the old and new to create a brief glimpse of something unique and inimitable.”
