Trouser-splitting Welsh heartthrob Tom Jones (that’s “Sir Thomas Jones OBE”) is leading the line-up at one the major jazz festivals of the year. Alongside Tom will be Norah Jones, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Winston, and Kool and the Gang as the big attractions at this year’s Jazz a Juan, taking place in Juan-les-Pins from 12th to 22nd July. The festival, which is one of the most famous in the world, has a great tradition, and the beautiful Pinede setting is always a hit for the 3000 spectators lucky enough to get tickets each night.
Sonny Rollins is one of the finest saxophonists of all time. He’s performed many sublime concerts and recordings, and has even played with the Rolling Stones! His show will be a long one – he’s probably going to be on stage for two and a half hours.
