Cape Town Jazz welcomes Jill Scott!

Following her non-appearance last years’ fest due to ‘filming commitments’ which was not communicated to the media resulting in ‘media bash’ Scott returns to share the stage with other 40 world class acts from 12 countries.

Entering its 14th edition, that’s the kind of line-ups which makes these show a sell-out!  

Notably, she shares stage with jazz exponent such as Norman Brown, saxophonist Kirk Whalum, Rick Braun, who together will perform as BWB, an act that has been described as astounding.

Jean-Luc Ponty- French born, a graduate of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, and Steve Turre, one of the world’s preeminent jazz innovators, trombonist and seashellist who has worked with Ray Charles, Stephen Scott, Woody Shaw and Blakey.

CéU from Brazil, combining samba, reggae, dub and electronica with amazing tunefulness, Dubmarine- Australian, an from Netherlands comes Chef’Special.

Home-grown comes five incredible women – Sonti, Thandiswa Mazwai, Auriol Hays, Claire Phillips and Pu2ma, just to mention the few.

According to Rashid Lombard, chief organiser for CTIJF, this year a no pass-out policy has been introduced to the festival.

This policy is in line with international best practice for major events and has been approved by the City of Cape Town’s safety and security structures.

“Not only will this ensure festival-goers can revel in the music safely, but it also prevents ticket fraud.”

The National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF) has come on board as one of the funders of the Training and Development (T&D).

Tickets are available at Computicket outlets, Shoprite Checkers and via the Computicket website.

Day passes R440 and weekend passes R645. There are a limited number of weekend passes. Rosies Stage tickets are R30 per performance and can only be purchased together with a day or weekend pass.
