A Jazzy Autumn Eve in Daegu | This Autumn with Jazz Melody!!

A Jazzy Autumn Eve in Daegu

Daegu International Jazz Festival is an annual music festival held in Daegu. This year's jazz festival was held in various parts of Daegu, including Dongsong-ro, Kim Gwangseok Alley and Suseong Lake, from September 9th to September 15th. Local and international musicians participated in the Jazz Festival.

Jazz is one of my favorite types of music. I listen to it whenever I feel lonely. It's a type of music that lightens my mood. So when I heard about the Daegu International Jazz Festival, I really wanted to go. However, I was so busy that I was only able to go on its last day.

On September 15th, my husband and I went to Suseong Lake, where the main stage was located.
I was surprised to see a lot of people there despite of the rain.

There were two groups performing that night, the group lead by a French jazz singer, Cyrille Aimée, and the Apple Jazz Orchestra with conductor Baek Jin-woo and singer Moon Hye-won.

I really enjoyed the performance of Cyrille Aimée and her group. I loved their music, especially the ones with Wayne Tucker on the trumpet.

I so loved their music that I asked my husband to buy me their CDs.
After their performance, they had a CD signing session. Of course, I didn't let that pass.

I even got selfies with Cyrille Aimée and Wayne Tucker.

It was indeed a memorable night. I wish I could have another night to enjoy some live jazz music. But I guess there's nothing I can do but wait for next year's Daegu International Jazz Festival.
