Early this year I was fortunate to be at the 2006 Barbados Jazz Festival. The Barbados jazz Festival over the years have grown a reputation off being one the Premier Jazz Festivals in the Caribbean. This year there were performances by great Jazz Icons such as Boney James, Cuban Jazz All Stars,Norman Brown, Gary Davis, and Jill Scott.

Every January the Festival stages open air concerts in Farley Hill. Farley Hill a mansion in ruins, tucked away in a forest of mahogany trees, high up on a hill overlooking the rugged Atlantic coast. Farley Hill is the ideal picnic spot, a great escape or to simply stare out to the sea. The Barbados Jazz Festival is a great experience that any Jazz and nature lover will enjoy.
