This year’s headliner Lizz Wright is performing in Estonia for a second time. In 2012 as the headliner of festival Jazzkaar she mesmerized with her velvety voice, emotional presence and warmth. Singers’ deep sounding r’n’b, soul, folk, jazz and gospel sounds will burst in flames in emotion. Her performance is Norah-Jones-like simplistic, and her voice is compared to legendary Nina Simone and Cassandra Wilson. The singer feels herself at home in all genres.
Christmas Jazz is an intimate festival suitable for the festive season that fills churches, concert halls and clubs with beautiful jazz for two weeks, from the end of November to the beginning of December. This is a perfect opportunity to discover a magical Christmas-themed Tallinn during the day and the world's finest jazz artists in the evening.
