The “Jazz Tikhaya Zavodi” festival has become traditional and was held last Saturday for the fifth time. The program featured a wide variety of projects from mainstream jazz and fusion to blues rock and pop soul. The main idea of the organizers was to attract good musical groups, to ensure that the program is not boring, and its performance is with of high quality.
For four years the festival was held in a unique place on the banks of the Volga, during which time musicians from North and South America, Africa and Europe visited the festival site.
This year it was decided to move the venue to one of the most beautiful and hospitable places in the Moscow region – the Bor guesthouse.
In the new location, the festival became even more interesting, brighter and attracted many fans of jazz and blues.
