Jazz Night at The Silent City

Music World Entertainment, in collaboration with Infinitely Xara will be hosting a Jazz Night at the Silent City on Saturday 20th April at the magnificent Palazzo de Piro in Mdina.


The Malta Jazz Festival has become a byword for high-calibre performances which delight jazz aficionados and lay persons alike. Running from Thursday 18 to Saturday 20 July in the open-air setting of Ta’ Liesse, contemporary music comes together with a sense of history for one of the main annual highlights in Malta’s cultural and artistic calendar.
For almost 25 years, the Malta Jazz Festival has been raising the bar for jazz in Malta, keeping its soul alive. Now in its 23rd edition, this year’s line-up promises to be no exception. On Thursday 18, Robert Glasper Experiment – fresh from his Grammy-award victory – will perform at Ta’ Liesse; Glasper’s music boldly stakes out new musical territory, drawing from jazz, hip hop, R&B, and rock, transcending any notion of genre. Also performing on the night is two-time Grammy award nominee Gerald Clayton with his Trio; Clayton’s dynamic sound has been praised by the Jazz Times and Los Angeles Times and he was recently voted first place for “Rising Star – Pianist” in Down Beat Magazine’s 2010 Critics Poll.
