Brecon Jazz Festival and Konfrontationen

The Brecon Jazz Festival in Wales in the beginning of August seems like a good idea. Keith & Julie Tippet (8 August) and Håkon Kornstad (6 August) will be of interest to this blog´s readers, and of course Orchestre National de Jazz, with "Around Robert Wyatt" (7 August)!

"Around Robert Wyatt" will also be performed at the Nice Jazz Festival (19 July) and Tremple Jazz (3 August).

If you are the traveling kind, check out the program for "Konfrontationen Nickelsdorf 2010" in Austria too (15 - 18 July). The festival is curated by Mats Gustafsson and Hans Falb. The super group The Thing XL would be my choice, with Mats Gustafsson, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Paal Nilssen-Love , Joe McPhee, Ken Vandermark, Terrie Hassels and Johannes Bauer!
