Anguilla to Host Tranquility Jazz Festival in November

Where will you be in the middle of November? For most of us, we’ll be wearing parkas clothes and getting ready for the holidays, but in Anguilla you’ll find stunning beaches, peaceful resorts, warm people and even fantastic jazz. If you’re interested in all of these things, the Tranquility Jazz Festival might be perfect for you.

The festival, which takes place from Nov. 9-13, is produced by BET Event Productions and concentrates on straight-ahead and pure jazz styles. Kicking off the festival on Wednesday evening is a reception, followed by a performance by Marlena Shaw at the Cuisinart Resort and Spa on Thursday. A tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim and Stan Getz will take place on Friday at the Rumza Night Club with an evening of Bossas & Ballads. Stefon Harris, David Sanchez, Claudia Acuna, Ravi Coltrane and his quartet and Clive Alexander are all scheduled to perform.
