The 28th international Jazz Time Rijeka, which is one of the longest running Croatian jazz festivals and has been bringing notable jazz names to Rijeka for more than two decades, will take place from 14 to 16 November. Way back in 1992, Vladimir Gašparović started the international Jazz Time festival in cooperation with the Rijeka Department of Culture at the behest of Prof. Dorian Hatta. Just a year later, the festival became an international event and today it is considered one of the foremost Croatian jazz festivals. The festival already has a storied history and young jazz players from Rijeka and the surrounding area are living proof that this type of festival is necessary. The Jazz Time Festival provides a platform for exhibiting a talented generation of jazz musicians and provides the audience in Rijeka an insight into the most recent jazz developments in other countries.
