Taiwan Quick Take: Jazz concert starts on Friday

STAFF WRITER WITH CNA

The 2006 Taipei International Jazz Faculty Concert will be held on Friday and Saturday at the Ta-an Forest Park in downtown Taipei, according to a spokesman for the Cultural Affairs Bureau under the Taipei City Government. Nine world-class jazz musicians from the US, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Taiwan will perform for the local audience, the spokesman said, adding that the music played by these top musicians would blend elements of funk, Latin music, R&B and jazz. The opening performance on Friday will start at 7pm, while Saturday's concert will commence at 4pm and run until midnight. Listening to cool, relaxing jazz music on a warm summer night is a great way to unwind, the spokesman said.
