The forthcoming Jerusalem Jazz Festival is a shot in the arm for lovers of the music all over the country and, naturally, particularly for jazz fans in the capital who generally have to traipse down to the other end of Route 1 to catch some worthy live action, or down Route 90 to get through 40+ degrees of heat before, hopefully, the air cools a mite for the evening shows at the summertime Red Sea Jazz Festival.

There was, in fact, an international jazz festival in Jerusalem in 2006, which took place under the auspices of the Yellow Submarine, but the inaugural four-dayer did not survive and was soon incorporated into the limited program space afforded to it by the Israel Festival.
