6e Fest-Jazz de Châteauneuf-du-Faou - August 1, 2010

Hi Lance, We returned from Brittany last Friday and during our time there we spent an afternoon and evening at the jazz festival at Chateauneuf-du-Faou. This is about twenty miles past Quimper and we really enjoyed the festival. There were many English people there and one of the bands, Blue Magnolia, were from Liverpool. But our favourites and a great favourite with the audience was Malo Mazurie (A brilliant young trumpet player) and The Westalk Quartet. This band played in the style of Gerry Mulligan. Their website is http://www.myspace.com/malomazurie
Here are some photographs of the bands and we shall enjoy talking about them next time we meet.
