The sparkling views of Nice and All That Jazz

The summer is about to heat up with the cool sounds of Nice Jazz Festival in picturesque Côte d’Azur. The world’s first jazz festival returns on Monday, July 17, with events spanning through Friday, July 21. Founded in 1948, the first year would see legendary headlining performers like Louis Armstrong, Claude Lutter and Django Reinhardt, but the event wouldn’t return until 1971. This time, the festival returns after a one-year hiatus and you can expect to hear the lives of Herbie Hancock, Mary J. Blige, Khadhja Bonet, Woman to Woman, De La Soul Live Band, Becca Stevens Band and many others.

Nice Jazz Festival has garnered quite the reputation over the years with acts from greats including Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, The Gipsy Kings, The Roots and Carlos Santana. And while it’s hard to improve upon such lineups, the festivities do improve with every passing year due to other considerations for the event. For example, the family-friendly jazz fest can boast sustainability as part of the program for 2017 with recycling areas, a waste reduction system decreasing trash produced by the event by a staggering 80% and other initiatives.

And the arts extend beyond music with a gallery of visual art reproductions by Patrick Moya, Jennifer Miller, Myriam Klein, Richard Roux and others as well as an exhibition of  32 reinterpretations of the official festival poster by as many artists from the city of Nice.

Take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy gorgeous Nice and the exhilarating sounds of jazz, jazz fusion and a diverse selection of other musical genres. And if you find you’ve fallen in love with Nice, make the awe-inspiring French seaside locale your home for the summer with your very own villa offering sparkling coastal views.
