Rio may be better known for the lively and contagious rhythm of samba, but this June, the city will be flooded with the syncopated patterns of jazz as the BMW Jazz Festival once more unites world-class musicians of the jubilant genre for a three-day affair on carioca turf. Twenty-time Grammy winning guitarist Pat Metheny is headlining the festivities with New Orleans flare, backed by his new Unity Band, followed by jazz’s latest breakthrough sensation, Esperanza Spalding, who won her first Grammy, for best breakthrough artist, in 2011.

Saxophone fans who sizzled at Maceo Parker’s performance last year are taken care of with Joshua Redman’s new acoustic jazz project, James Farm, and the American pianist Brad Melhdau, known for his collaborations with John Mayer and Radiohead, also makes an appearance on Sunday. More improvisation and wild trumpets will be the order of the day with the Dave Douglas Quintet, alongside the versatile post-bop jazz master, multi-instrumentalist Joe Lovano.

James Farm
Esperanza Spalding & Radio Music Society

Sunday, 9 June, from 8pm

Monday, 10 June, from 9pm
