The 32nd Jazz on the Costa festival will start on Monday 15 July and run until Saturday 20. Each night a different artist will be performing a different genre of jazz in Almuñécar's Majuelo park.

Grammy-nominated Jazzmeia Horn will be opening this year's festival and performing songs from her debut album, 'A Social Call'. She will be followed on Tuesday 16 by Cadiz-born saxophonist, composer and singer, Antonio Lizano, who combines jazz with flamenco sounds.

Wednesday 17 will see the turn of Joseph James, whose latest album, 'Lean on Me', is a tribute to soul legend, Bill Withers.

Cuban jazz pianist and composer, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, will be performing songs from his latest album, 'Skyline', on Thursday 18 and Christian McBride, who has collaborated with musicians including Paul McCartney and Sting, will be appearing at the festival on Friday 19.

Closing this year's festival on Saturday 20 July will be Jesse Davis, one of the top contemporary jazz stars from New Orleans following in the tradition of the Marsalis family.

All tickets cost 20 euros and can be bought online or one hour before the start of each performance at the box office at the park.
