Three nights full of jazz and visitors

THE RISING popularity of jazz in Slovakia was again seen in the sold-out performances at the annual Bratislava Jazz Days festival, which ended on October 19.
The three-day jazz marathon, held as usual at the PKO complex, drew fans from across the country. The venue holds 2,000 people, and tickets sold out at the beginning of the festival week, except for around 200 a day held for sale at the door.
"They were sold within two hours," event organiser and Slovak jazz legend Peter Lipa told the TASR news agency.
