Founded in 2006 by Jean-René Palacio, the Festival also owes its identity to its godfathers: Marcus Miller and Ibrahim Maalouf, who will not be missing this 17th edition.
In addition to these jazz legends and afficionados, the MCJF offers a special jazz film program, with a screening of Clint Eastwood's Bird in partnership with the Institut audiovisuel de Monaco. The new generation of musicians from the Académie Rainier III will also be taking part in the festival with their concert JAZZ & MODERN MUSIC.
From 2022 onwards, the Before and After highlights will be resurrected in new venues such as the Rotonde Bar at the Casino Monte-Carlo, and will also occupy the Crystal Bar of the Hôtel Hermitage and the American Bar at the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo.
We look forward to seeing you in the autumn for this Jazz Festival, where every nuance of jazz will be heard.
