“This edition of the Jazz Utsav will present a variety of jazz, right from Latin jazz to straight-ahead to contemporary experimentations with a hint of classical music woven into them. The artistes will perform their own compositions, each lending them their own style and interpretation, as well as, jazz standards,” said Ahmed Ebrahim, founder of Pune Jazz Club. Pune is very much a part of the all-India Jazz Utsav circuit that includes Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore. “This year the Pune Jazz Utsav intends to identify Pune as the jazz capital of India,” added Ebrahim.
